Got the new brakelines in, they're pretty nice, all prebent with fittings.



Got new axle bearings, pretty nice too by Timken, and the Goodridge extended stainless soft lines.



Got the YJ shackles in with new poly bushings..I like these better than the long goofy ones I had one there.

Got a pretty nice Levis dash for $25 from a JF member 20 mins from my house.




Also got these bumpers off a guy in PA who makes and sells them on ebay.

Good buy on the dash. The bumpers look very well made too!

Regarding the dash- you suck.
Bumpers- look very similar to the one's by BESRK over in the fabrication section. Real solid. **Please use jackstands to install- them things weigh a ton.

Thanks guys..if you look at the last pic, do you think that top plate on the front bumper could use a couple more stitch welds? Yea I will definitely either use some jackstands or get a friend to help me put them on. Im gonna paint them with the Chassis Saver gloss black paint.

Take lots of pictures of the frame - and look at them. I found a lot more crappy paint spots than when I was just looking at the frame.
But that looks sweet.

Welded in some rear crossmember strenthener brackets to tie in the frame. They will keep the rear bumper from pulling on the thin stock crossmember.

Got another project going..its an old Baja bug



I did manage to get the YJ tub laid on the frame to see how the body mounts line up and to possibly get some body work done on it soon.

Sandblasted some of the smaller stuff. Makes it so much easier to strip paint and rust off.
