My 87 Wrangler project

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, 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

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.

Strangley enough, I too have an 87 that I have begn to work on, and I too want to pant it Flat OD Green. Only, I was thinking I would accent with gloss black on the bumpers. Your idea sounds better though!! i wanna se yours first

I also have an 87 project under way. We have ours striped down to the frame at this point. It is my sons Jeep and we have about a year and a half to complete it. Good luck with yours and hope to see more pics. We have a number of pics posted on our project. This is my first complete tear down and I am having a blast with it. I think I am having more fun then my son.
