I got my jeep because I have always wanted one. I test drove a 2005, 2007, and a 1993. I came home with the 93 because it felt like a jeep should feel. I vowed to myself that I would do all the work to it myself and gave myself a one year time limit for beefing it up. Although I had never owned a 4x4 or built one I knew it could be done. This is my dream, Made with my own hands and Lots of work.

Lemoore-on


I bought the 92 2.5L Jeep back in July of 2010 (I was a Toyota guy for 20 years) It only had 78K on it so I thought it would be a good platform. It had a worn out saggy ProComp lift & shocks with 28” tires on it. It ran great. I joined Jeep Forum the next day because even though I had been wheeling for a long time I really knew nothing about Jeeps. I lurked on here and learned as much as I could & started formulating a plan. I collected parts for almost 2 years and did a bunch of normal maintenance (slave cylinder/clutch/motor mounts & stuff). So here it is now. I didn’t do it all myself, I had a lot of help.

Power steering swap from a 95 YJ.
OME 36R’s.
1” Booms rear/1/2” Booms front W/greasable bolts.
RE shocks.
J&B SYE.

True neutral plate.
Browndog 1” lift motor mounts.

Inside
fixed cracks in the floor pan.
Monsta liner “Spice”.
Seats out of some GM car.
Installed seat heaters.
LED dash lights. (red)
Tuffy console with head unit bin.
Tuffy glove box.
Added to the cage (more to do).
Head unit & amp 6x9’s behind the seat cage pods 6” in floor pod in front of shifters.
A pair of power ports in the dash.
Grant steering wheel.
40mm ammo cans cut in half then welded new bottoms in, mounted to rear wheel wells.

Outside
TJ fuel filler assembly.
TJ corner guards.
Rock Monkey Fab front bumper W/”D”ring & towbar mounts.
Warn 9000 winch.
Homemade Rocker guards.
Rock Monkey Fab rear bumper W/swing out spare. mount/Jerry can & Ammo can mounts.
TJ rear flares.
MCE flat front fenders.
LED tail & side marker lights.
Painted everything OD Green.
1” body lift (Daystar)
Rock Monkey Fab almost flat belly pan skid plate.



Future planed mods include

Cromolly TJ front shafts.
Shock mounts & longer Bilstein shocks.
35” tires
CB & 2 meter radio

Brief History:
Bought this almost stock after selling my XJ. Knew it wouldn't stay that way long. Started with a shackle lift and then found the forum and started my build thread, A Teenager With a Dream. After a little paint and hard work I've finally reached a point where I'm pretty happy with the jeep. Still a fair amount to do but I've learned a lot and still have plenty to learn.

the nose knows-

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.
