Well not much here yet but it's a start. I got this jeep for $600 it sexed a few things and this is my first jeep. I got it towed home and the work started. And the bank balance started to go down. So far I have fixed the rocker panels, put all new front end into it ball joints wheel bearings tie rods steering parts ext. I put a 40 series flowmaster on it. New tail pipe and tinted the tail lights out.

The floors are 100% solid still has the factory paint on it. So that was a bonus and today I put on a set of rims and some 31" Bridgestone tires with out any lift. Just had to shave off a small part of the front bumper cover.

My plans are to put a 3" lift on it push bar roof rack light bar and some 33" rubber. But this is my start

The day I got it

Looking good. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I'll be getting a ZJ as my next build so I'm always watching for build threads on them.
