fixing my 93 yj

A few months ago I bought a 93 yj i6 4.0L
It had some problems I knew that were going to need repaired before I could use it.
I knew when I got it that it had some rust, the break lines were also leaking pretty bad, and the tires were bad. It doesn't have a radio. I will add some pictures of what I've done since getting it as soon as I get WiFi. My dad was a mechanic so he has been doing all the difficult stuff.

great project for sure! You will soon learn, it never stops lol. Once everything is fixed, you'll find more stuff to upgrade or mod.

Here is how she looks.

We put in new break and ebrake lines, new brake pads and a bunch of those parts. Different rear axel, because there was some slop to the one that was on it.

Oh, and i forgot to mention the stuff that was changed for the other pictures. I changed the windshield and windshield frame because it was broken and the frame was rusted. I bought a set of full doors, because my half doors had square tops and that didnt fit with a hard top. The rear end of the frame was rusted out so we cut out the rust and put in new pieces of steel. Bought a new radiator because the old one was stock and was leaking. We put in a rough country 4"lift kit. I also got tires and wheels off of cragslist. Also bought the headlight conversion kit. Bought led lights for the dash. Bought an antenna, speakers and a radio. Ordered new side mirrors for the half and full doors. We are currently putting in new body bushings because the old ones were pretty much gone, those will lift it another inch.

I'm working on putting my dash back together, I had gotten some led bulbs for in the dash, speakers and a radio so I figured I'd do all that at the same time. Of course some of the torx screws that hold the metal sheet for over the speakers were rusted in place so I had to drill them out. Other than that I put on a antenna for the radio and put on a set of mirrors for my full doors. I also had to cut a few holes in the tub to get to the body bushing bolts because they are completely rusted in place.

Ya, still a bit to do, I got it about 6months ago and thought it was going to be a quick project because I thought it just needed some repair from rust and new break lines, but I keep seeing more and more that I want to do.

Got bed liner in the mail today, I've been grinding all the rust off of my winch plate and have to paint that and both of my tube bumpers. We had to cut holes in the tub because that was the best way o getting at my rusted up body bushing bolts. I have the entire dash tore apart because I put in new speakers, led bulbs in my dash panel, and I'm trying to wire a radio in (the po screwed up a ton of the wiring and then covered it in cheep electric tape.)

I will most likely be able to use these extra pieces of steel from my dads shop to make up a rear bumper. I don't really like the tube bumpers that are on it

I took off the front bumper, winch plate, spare tire carrier, and grabbed the metal plate that holds the gas tank. And I ground off all the rust and started painting them with the rustolium flat black paint.

Ya a few weeks we moved it by trailer to my dads shop so whenever I have some time that I'm not needed I try and do a little something with the jeep. Luckily for me my dad has about every tool I could ever need

Well I had some free time today a a can of paint, so I ground off all the rust that was on the metal battery holder (whatever you call it) and repainted it with some flat black rust resistant spray paint. Looks far better then it did

Also took off the air vent on the hood and cleaned that and the screen that is there out and painted it with the rest of my flat black paint.

The other day after I finished grinding off all the rust I could find I took a few cans of rustolium flat black paint and sprayed a few coats on most of the jeeps body. I was sick of seeing bear metal, the original color and the cruddy coat of spray paint from the PO.

Thanks, it's getting pretty close, just haven't had enough time to finish it up. Sadly I don't think there are many good trails near me

The ups guy saw my jeep at my dads shop today and said he has a ton of parts for a yj that he made into a rock crawler, so if I need anything to let him know! (He is now my new favorite person)

I also regestered the jeep in my name and got the plates for it, all that is left to do is replace a break part that we stripped when we replaced the break lines, should be able to put it all back together tomorrow
