New from the Texas coast

Okay I'll bite. After reading all the helpful posts you guys so generously share, I just have to let everyone in on my first jeep project.

This is the only picture of taken of "Patton" so far, but I promise to take more throughout the rest of his transformation.

As I paid for him:
49K miles on the body
3" body lift
4.2L staight 6
15x12.5x33 non matching tires

Completed projects to date:
New exhaust from manifold to tip
New brake booster
New master cylinder
New battery
New ignition switch
Entire brake lines
New horn

Driver and pasenger seats and brackets (man quadratec is proud of them, I want neoprene)
Front drive shaft (no idea why its missing)
Headlight switch

Bedliner sprayed in tub
Flat Olive Drab paint job
Flat black paint front and rear bumpers
Lots of lights
Warn black alloy wheels
A top I suppose
Rod holders for surf fishing

I am fortunate enough to be a golf course superintendent and have access to an awesome shop. Its pictured up on our equipment lift.

I vow to take many more pictures along the way and ask many questions.

Gimme a shout next time your head to Port A.

Two things we are not short of around here are bars and sand!

I cant wait to get the jeep in shape to head south on Padre Island National Seashore. 50+ miles of beach and dunes to explore.

First round is on me.
