Hey guys this is my first jeep and really looking forward to the project if building her up and see what takes shape. I wanted to kind of chronicle my progress here that way i could get some advice along the way. So far ive had it for about 2-3 weeks. Pretty much all stock nothing big on it. 2.5 L 174500 miles. Runs ad cranks good. FWD works. It does have some rust issues but most jeeps ive looked at in the past few months have had the same or worse.
So far ive only done minor things. I removed the old worn out seats. Will be replacimg with black vinyl rugged brand non-reclining high backs. I had to replace the drivers side riser due to a MASSIVE rust build up that ate away the left hand side and into the floor destroying the nutplate. Im going to have a buddy of mine cut out the rust and replace it with a patch and new nutplate. There are a few more worrisome rust areas specifically at the steering colum. Ill be por-15ing as muvh as possible lol. Removing/ replacing what i must.
The other day i had a speedometer light and turn signal failure so i replaced fuses, bulbs, and relays with no results. Ill tackle that one later. Also the jeep came with a bikinni top so i bought a rampage soft top complete replacement kit w/ frame. STOLE it for $200 Brand new on ebay! Zing!!!
Ill include pics later, phone wont do it, and update as regularly as possible looking forward getting her done and all the feed back. Did i mention ive never done anything like this before complete noob to all of this.
