Hillbilly Jeeper (soon to be.......)

Hello, just a note for an intro, she is almost done. new to the forum not to Jeeps. This is my third, but it has been a while since Ive been behind the wheel of a heep.
She is an 87 that needed a lot of TLC. A big ol 4 banger, and a lot of rust.
She now sports 2.5 in of lift, a shackle reverse, and a few other suspension gizmos. She is in the last phases of body work and getting ready to get some color (and it is gonna be color). Hopefully screwing her back together sometime next week.
Thanks for the info in the past, (a lurker at heart) and looking forward to sharing my experience w/ yall.

Welcome to WF.
There's a Jamboree in Snowshoe this summer.
I may take a ride down.

I live about 45 min from Snowshoe. LMK when. I am hoping 2-3 more weeks. Photos later today I promise. Thanks all.

Here are a few photos





All the mechanical work is done, need a few final touches on the suspension. The body work is killing me (Im no bodyman) But luckily my friend who is kind enough to let me use his garage is.
Got to the final stages of bodywork yesterday. 2 coats of primer with blocking in between, fitting the doors and hinges to make sure that we are GTG. Hopefully color early in the week. Here are the photos from this week.
