ok so the city came by because since i have the two jeeps in the driveway my truck and wifes car were in the driveway over the sidewalk. they left us warning stickers on our windows. i was so mad because the sticker just ripped when i tried to pull it off. luckily the jeep still runs just no steering. so both are crammed into the garage.

Man that's a lot of work to do by your self. I can relate, I've rebuilt my cj7 and swapped to tons and 37's all inside a one car garage by myself. Sorry if I came off wrong on your help thread but your post was very vague. Good luck on this build.

For my frame I started with etching primer and then POR 15 and finished it with truck bed liner. The liner took real well to the POR 15 and to this day after mudding it looks almost new when cleaned.

Which Jeep is the parts one? The green one? I like of liked the look of the narrow track axles and the small wheels, but the body was really shot. Where'd it come from?

When you start on the rear frame read up on fish plates at all joints when welding new sections of frame on. What you do is butt weld the pieces together and use plates shaped like a diamond and weld over top of the butt welded joints. My photo shows one. I'll post another below

pulled the red tub off my jeep because it was beat up but no rust on it. i rolled my jeep the day after i got it home when i first got my jeep. the reason i threw in the towel on the red tub is its so kinked that it started messing with my hard doors now my driver side window wont roll up or down without alot of help. my hard top was having fitmit issues as well. so it was damned if you do damned if you dont kinda thing. but found the jeep here in texas. and started.
