I started my newest project on Jo today. I swapped my factory sport bar and $175 for a Poison Spyder cage.


This is the first time the bar has ever been removed. It looks funny without the bar in it. I took her out to get dinner and it was wierd without the bar in there. Like a giant convertible really high off the ground...lol





Here's the new cage. Tomorrow it will get stripped of the yellow and black, get fresh primer and a nice coat of red.



In the back yard in "Zombie Hall" (my garage canopy) ready to be unpainted...

Plastidipped my wheels, partially installed my CB yesterday.

I will be installing my Poison Spyder hood louver today, and hopefully my rock sliders come in a few days to complete my armor.

She ain't much of a snow rig, but boy did we have to drive slowwwwww for you to keep up on the pavement!



This is a pic from last year's trip (when I was the owner) and it did much better than this year. Less snow though.

Replaced plugs and the tps sensor man what a difference.

Bad news pulled back in garage after test drive and drip drip. I have coolant running down between the block and oil pan. I think it's the water pump again. New pump is less than 1k old all the freeze plugs look good and so does gasket. Thoughts?

Yes I did a grille conversion. I got bored one day and I personally prefer YJs but I also like the round headlights so why not have both?

My buddy just posted this today. He is buying a pre-built YJ. Figured I would throw this in the most popular thread for YJ's in case anyone knows someone who wants a YJ in the philly area. I think it is fair for 78k and pretty much mint condition.

Would go for a lot more out here on the left coast. My YJ has 72k miles and was offered between 9-10k. I did have a bit more work done to it though

Yeah he is a good friend of mine, but I think that is an awesome deal or I wouldn't have posted it. Thing looks pretty much mint and he is keeping the km2's on it for that price. The yj he is going to buy is 9k with a 5.3 v8 and Dana 60's running 42's.
