It needs a few scratches before I put it through some real wheelin'. Hoping to have it on the road by the end of March and hit the beach and maybe some wide trails to see how well I built it.

Thanks, Dan. Your dash made the jeep for me, everyone of my friends that see it love it. I am looking forward to the next project that I can showcase your work in, maybe a CJ8. BTW the grills looked great in the photo. Thanks again

The Jeep looks great. Very nice looking paint. Can't wait to see some more pics!

If you can't be handsome, you'd better be handy.

The frame and axle housings have been blasted and recoated. All new SS brake lines and fuel lines run. RE 4.5" lift installed. Doesn't show it here but TRF done with HD tie rod and drag link. The 4.2L that came with it was shot so I found a 4.0L out of a 94 GC and mated that to the original T5. Haven't done wheels and tires yet because I'm afraid that I wont be able to get it out of the garage, I have 80" clearence and when I did a mock up with the 31's that are on it I could just barely get it out. Kinda at a stopping point without the tub so like I said, hopefully I get it back soon so I can send more pics and get some more work done.

Man everything looks great. I love the dash and gauges. What gauges are they? Nice simple and clean! How did you refinish the frame?

Very nicely done! I tried to send you a pm, but your inbox is full. I am wondering if you might still have the stock chrome wagon wheels and might be willing to sell them if you do?

The 4.0l is running great. I was a little worried since it had not been started in 2 years but once everything was hooked up (the right way) it started right up. I am waiting to get drive shafts to see what kind of power it has. I am at the station today so as soon as I get home in the morning I will take some engine bay shots and get them posted.

The gauges are Autometer gauges, Street Rod MCX series.

I had the frame sand blasted and painted by a guy in Magnolia that does work on oil field equipment by the name of Trinidad. I wanted the frame powdercoated but the guy that did the work said that the paint he used is what is used to paint oil rigs and is made to withstand salt water. I have to say that it is pretty tough. When I was making ground connections to the frame I tried exposing some bare metal and when I hit it with a wire wheel it barely scuffed, so I got the grinder out. I wish I could remember what kind of paint it is.

Sorry the old wheels are already gone.

Off to have new driveshafts made and axles regeared. Hopefully this is the only time that it sees the back of a wrecker.
