Well... This is the TO-DO list

-Fix Bumper
-U-Joint on rear driveshaft
-Fix speakers (YES I fix them, not replace cause i'm cheap... i'll show you how)
-Replace rear tail light
-Fix small rust spots (2)
-Clean it

After these are all done I will then decide if I want to keep it or sell it.
I'm already leaning towards keeping

This morning I decided to take a wack at the front bumper.
It will look better off then on... thats for sure

End caps come off first... I thought this would be easier sense it's already half bent off. Not the case, but easier for pictures.



FIRST THING FIRST! disconnect your battery. You never know what you might hit on accident. Airbags make a mess...

There is 2 8mm bolts on the fenders... simple easy... no photos. :/


2 10mm bolts /w non-fixed 10mm nuts on the bumper (LOL I BROKE THESE :P)

You can't miss them.

BOOM EASY DONE! Disconnect the fog lamps!

Once these are off, you might want to take off your vaccum ball thing. torx 25 if I remember... simple easy. cool. no pix :C


Poped off the breezels for the headlamps

2 phillips screws on the top and it comes out

2 phillips on the running lights. take off the outside one and loosened the inside one. I didn't want to take of the gill. (LAZY)

AC works and no leaks.. drove it 35 miles home doing 80mph (SPEED DEMON) so i'm not too worried about the rad.

Looks like I got some cutting and welding to do...

This is how she looks after all is straight. New bumper. Needs caps.

Sold it to my best friend who is an avid Cherokee lover... and regret every minute of it.



I bought this

So now this thread belongs to "JEEPsF0RLIFE" as well as the XJ.

It truely is a gnarly Jeep. Surf Wax on all 4 door handles and wax stuck on roof wrack.

Thumbs up

Just read this entire build. You sir did exactly (for the most part) what I was going to do! Awesome build!

I was actually planning on doing the "paint the parts as you go approach". I think it's a good idea aesthetically as well as functionally (rust preventer)
