Small update: Had the coolant and heater core flushed, thermostat and oil changed, and rotated the tires. Feels good to have heat, thermostat has been open for a long time. Here's a cool picture that occurred on my way back to school in frozen rain.

Loving your progress and the classic look your jeep has. Definitely fits the old school ad you posted up.

Thanks, it's a never ending project but it's a fun one for sure. Lots of future plans but keeping it clean is at the top of the list.

Haha clean but functional, don't want my Jeep to become like BleepinJeep's XJ that was turned beauty to crawler. Researching 2x6 rockers now, don't have any rust but for the price and looks I like the idea. So not clean where I won't cut into it but it needs to look good in the end too. Looks & Functionality

Im considering doing the 2x6 rockers too. I'd be curious see see how you set yours up. My rocker is rusted, so might be cheaper to just go to 2x6's instead of a new rocker.

I'll post up pictures, I'm committed mentally to doing it now. I've seen a lot of people go 66"s for a full length but I think I'm just going to go 60" and see where that lands me, I do plan on eventually trimming and new flares and don't need a full width slider.

They are the best looking to me.

Just got off the phone with the local scrap company in town. $103 for two 5' sections of 2x6 3/16" and four 5' sections of 1/8" flat stock, very happy with the price.
