Plop's do over project

Old Jeep project Sold last summer in July
The plop project

My new project is... another Jeep YJ
91 4 banger ~137k on the ticker
Stock and not as rusty as the last one but this one has a bad spot on the frame.
Clutch is inop. no pressure on the peddle so I will start with a slave cylinder

Came with hard top, full hard doors that match and half doors that dont. No pics til the mornin.

Plans: To be determined.

I relapsed on the drug known as Jeep for $800

Glad to see the vaccine did not work and you are still stuck with the Jeep bug. Looking forward to the build.

Got some pics, did some work to the jeep already and went to the junkyard to get some parts. Just got a license plate bracket and a master cylinder to see if that will fix the cluth pressure problem.

Now for the pics:




Can anyone notice something wrong with this pic, and the dude drove this as is up until a week ago.

I had an awesome time inside the jeep, I found a rats nest of wire partially for the radio and speekers and one was for a push button start, I had a hand full of wire thate wasn't supposed to be there.

Looks like you need 5 wheels the same, and a hood hold down on the drivers side. Have fun and good to see you back.

I have to give back 2 wheels, the snowflake ones because I just needed some to get it to roll down the road. I have the 2 other matching rims, but I am not concerned because I want different rims. I want to make this one similar to my first one with 33's and I may leave it white when I am done. I am glad I kept my CJ tailgate so now I can actually throw it on this one.

Glad to see you back. You broke my heart when you sold the last one. Good luck and keep us posted.

I keep kicking myself for selling it; I am unsure on my capabilities on doing a motor swap though. The furthest I ever went on a vehicle was removing a trans, so doing this and making it work again will be another stepping stone. It will be easier with a parts jeep right next to this one.

The skid plate that holds it up is MIA, I am surprised the tank never fell out. I didn't notice it until I got it home and in the back yard.

Got my tires, now I have to wait for some money so I can buy rims. Then on they go. I also got the motor out of the Jeep. The only problem I have now is money because I have none.

That seems to be another thing that we Wrangler owners have in common but somehow we manage to find it.

If someone would just buy my S10, I could have all the money I would need to finish it.

I think its kind of bad, my tires cost me more than the Jeep did; Only by 50 bux and a tank of gas though.

I am fine with the tear apart, its the put together and make it work that scares me.

I have an update. I have the jeep almost torn apart, its a rolling frame and body. I Just have to do the body mounts and take a few bolts out of the front clip and I will be ready for the fun stuff.

Just have to wait for pics though. I just got power back, we had one heck of storm; nothing we get too often.

Some update with pics:

I had the motor out awhile ago.

I started taking off some parts, beginning with the top and the doors.

I then made a cart for the top and the doors, its not all the way done but it was to a point where it was usable.

And a big thanks to bc3_Jeep for helping me out majorly. I got a parts jeep from him with a 6cyl for some parts that I had.
I got it without a top, doors, wheels or a hood; I those parts on the parts jeep from the other one to keep it protected from the weather while I work on the other one. Its much easier to keep it mobile.




My 3rd and 2nd white Jeep

Pulled the axles out and seperated the tub from frame. I also put a sunroof in my S10, today was very productive. I think I will have to sit back and have a cold one now.

Not much of an update, but I have been pulling some little things off of the frame to get ready to wire wheel it. Looking at the lines, it onl looks like I need to do a brake line and a fuel venting line. Bad news is that I will have to cut off the two back cross braces and make new ones to replace them.

I have been slacking on it the past couple days because its hot out and when I sit inside I just fall asleep,damn this working early in the morning thing.

Good news is that I will be picking up a rear axle this week, a D35 with 4.10 so I have a matching gear ratio that I want. I didn't want to repeat my last Jeep that had 3.07, good on gas bad on the freeway. Also I should be getting rims for my tires this week.

So this weekend my project is to get it back to a rolling frame with it all painted up.

Looks Like you have alot of work ahead. A person can do anything they have there mind set to do. I changed out a motor in my sons truck this winter, First time, It was a experiance but none the less im not afraid to do it again. Take your time and do it right the first time.

Thanks guys.

Cleaned up the frame a couple days ago, and picked up a D35 for cheap with 4.10 gears to match my front axle.








My goal for the weekend is to have the holes patched and coat the frame and hopfully have it rolling around on the axles. My tires are going to swapped onto rims with the right bolt pattern too, my brother is swapping me rims because he has the B.P. that I need and I have what he needs.

The frame was coated with grease which was placed there by a previous owner and for the most part it did a good job at keeping the frame pretty nice. Just dirty as heck on the clean up though

I have to work with whatever I have for now can't buy parts until I sell something. I just priced out my books for school and have to drop close to 500 just on books. So otherwise I have to wait a month before I get anymore money to play with.
