kluttsy01 Small update, got undercoating on the frame and bottom of the floor pan and decided to make my own seat mount sense I could find one and wasnt willing to pay 90 bucks for one side.

Luke95 Parked it in the shop last night. Now its time to take the doors fenders and whatever else gets in the way of the dom off of it. I also need to go buy some more steel to make some hard mounts for the phatboi seats. I also have to pull the front axle out of it to rework the ****ty artec setup and finish my rear bumper so I can tie in the cage or something along those lines.

kluttsy01 Well this is as far as I could make it today. Gonna do rubberized undercoating on it in the morning and it should get all buttoned up, until we start on the drivers side..

That's just a pup . Our '95 Country had over 234,000 miles on it when we traded it , due to it being unsafe for driving ( heavily rusted frame in more than one place , thanks to Michigan salt roads ) . I'd still be running it if not for the rust .

Definitely cutting the entire pass side out, theres not much good left but I'm probably gonna just piece the drivers side in sense theres still a decent amount of good left over.

My GF needed the sagging headliner fixed and didn't want to wait for me to DIY. $200 and new visors too. I don't think she's ridden in it since. That was one of the biggest waste of money things I've done. The GF moving in, not the headliner.

That's what it's all about. I've spent so much money in my TJ's over the years, worrying about making it back (and a profit) when selling them, that I never really enjoyed them (I'm poor). I'm enjoying my XJ and fixing/upgrading stuff when I can. It's nice having a usable Jeep that didn't cost me $10,000+ stock. This thing was cheaper than a crappy 4 banger TJ (when I bought it stock) and way more fun and useful to drive.
