Painting all the brackets from the engine compartment and body mount stuff. I can't make up my mind whether to take it all the way down and build it back up with a new engine/tranny combo or just put her back together like she is. Money is the real issue!!! If I take her all the way down I don't know when I will get the cash to build her back up. I am putting a new clutch and SYE in my 94yj this weekend. It prolly is wise to wheel the 94 and take my time on the cj, building her the way I want..... Buttttt I have the parts on hand to make the cj a driver??? -Sparky-

If it were me, and I had something else to drive, I would take her down and build her back up right. Either way, your gonna spend some major $$ but at least it will be the way you want. Just my opinion. Good luck either way you go.

I agree!! You have another jeep to wheel so take your time on the cj and make it one badd a** jeep!! I went through the same thoughts when I was where you are. And I have been building it for 16 months now and have enjoyed every moment of it. Well worth the time and money!!!!

Frame got a quick clean up, some new paint. I have sold the CJ to a friend of mines son. He is still in HiSkool and plans to make it his driver. His name is Cam and his dad is Kip. We are leaving it in my garage and building it together. Kip did some minor welding to the tub last night and we put her back on the frame.....It is starting to look sweet. I had to make a decision on which rig to keep. I went with the YJ because it is a driver. Here are some pictures af how she looks.
