Talking Project dumb to done for the dirt

Traded a 1982 honda 450cc Nighthawk (got for free) for a non running 1990 2dr 4.0 4x4. Stock height with 30x9.5 15s with some black 3.75 offset rims. This is my 4th jeep, first one that's not red.(yes!) Start and run problem was a loose wire. Easy fix drove it around, shifted nice, smooth in and out of 4h 4L.

Stage 1
remove spray can paint job
Remove sways
Tune up and gaskets
fix power windows and sunroof
Clean clean and more clean
Paint and interior fixes
Doorless mod

Stage 2

Craigslist lift (unknown height) what ever I can get for dirt cheap
Craigslist used mt's 33-35s
Ditch the turdy for a welded chysler
Bumps and shocks

Stage 3
Sell and sink money into my 1999 xj classic

Got new air filter in today. Also started getting doors stripped and ready for doorless mod. Gonna put some speed holes in doors to lighten them up. I imagine there gonna sucked to remove more than a 4dr xj.
