on my way home from the dealership i had 0 oil pressure, i didnt know about the notorious 0331 head at the time, drove the jeep around for a month an it started overheating and giving me problems, took it to a shop, needless to say after a replaced head gasket and 6 thousand boners i had a jasper remanufactured engine put in. Broke it in all nice and easy...
then i wheeled it...

THHHEEEEEENNNNNNNNN....idk what was wrong with the damn thing but it wouldnt start every now and then. one night, i THOUGHT she needed a jump so i popped the hood, then for some reason tried to start her before i jumped it and she started, i was in a hurry and drove off without fully latching it, hit 40 mph and the hood flew up, bent around the roof and was just done haha so i hit the jy and got a new one very very close in color but not quite. hahaha wtf my luck with this little baby is just ****, and the combo of me being an idiot lol

Ive never done any rust removal or body repair, nor am i that handy, but id say it turned out all right. its been about 6 months since i did this and paint matched it, and the rust is nowhere in sight. time will tell.

and looked like this after bare metal sanding and rust prevention krylon primer and paint. i went ahead and sanded most everything pretty well and gave it a good coat of the Krylon "rust tough" primer in paint.

Ordering my lift later this week so i decided to go ahead and remove that ugly sunfaded door trim.
The dent here is from someone's foot, obviously too scared to do it to me, but i heard through the grape vine it was a foot.

lift came in friday evening. 3" RC w/full packs, perf. 2.0 shocks, blue boots, and rough country perf, 2.0 steering stabilizer. Pretty pumped to do the install. My dad is supposed to help but well see how long it takes for him to actually own up to his word. so until the lift install itll be slow around these parts. heres the eye candy
