start and up to date pics stock suspension 32x10.50x15 wrangler rims, custom tunes, finishing exhaust this weekend, new spring perches, brakes, been working on it for around 8 months, lifting when funds allow it.
Update on project MJ.
The frame has been welded, body sandblasted to bare metal and primed grey for now.
I had some custom made upper & lower control arms both adjustable from 0"-8" lift
adjustable track bar, rear shackles, drag ling.
I bought spindles and sandblasted them to clean them up. New sealed hubs, new front coil springs, rear leaf springs, new fuel tank, new fuel line from front to rear, new copper nickle alloy brake like, new brakes front and rear.
I am having custom made tube bumpers and a double tube roll bar.
There is still so much work to do I have decided to put it away for the winter (first sign of snow it goes) and bought another beater to get me thru the winter months.
The MJ should be on the road next spring I am hoping.
Did you have to lift it at all to put the 32's on it. I recently purchased a fixer upper myself. I need a new bed, doors, and kick plates under the doors and the body will be good. I am about to purchase new tires for it as it is my daily driver and would like to know how big of tires i can put on with out a lift.
I did not have to lift it, but..... I had to trim the fender my tires are 32x10.50x15, They rubbed the back part of the fender and turning lock to lock they rub inside.
I bet a 30"-31" 9.50x15 tire would fit with no fender trimming.
I have a new set of BFG 30x9.50x15 I am having put on, since im not going to be done working on it till spring I am going to wait to put them on.
The latest up date on my MJ. I did a lousy job on the primer so I bought a sandblaster and was hoping to blast it this past summer but had no time, plus the MJ was at the weld shop. I found out the frame was rotted in a couple spots. I then decided to send it to my mechanic to have him do some work to it which he didn't, he had it for the whole summer I just got it back home just before Christmas.
I decided to buy all adjustable suspension components.
Adjustable upper and lower control arms, tie rods, tracbar, shackles.
I ripped my XJ apart and sandblasted some of the brake parts, spindles. Bought 2 new front fenders, new hood and a rear sliding window.
The truck does not run as I removed the gas tank, fuel line and rear brake lines that was all my mechanic was supposed to do before I got it back.
I have thought about selling it, I bit off a little more than I thought but I want to finish it, this is my first restoration job and want to see it complete.
I have not been on here in a while and need to come here more often again.
