The rebuilding starts .......

After a roll over and a rod through the oil pan and a total loss pay out from insurance the rebuilding has started

Brand new 4.0 crate motor went in today and is running.....

Next stop the body shop for
Genright
Front tube fenders with 4" flare
Rear corners with 4" flare
Windshield frame armor
Gas tank skid
Steering box skid
Front bumper with trail stinger
Rock sliders with boat sides and step
Side panel armor
All of the genright stuff with be painted with UPOL raptor liner in black

Poison spider tramp stamp ( under rear tailgate)
What is left of the body will all be repainted in factory white

Then off to the 4wd shop
BDS long arm suspension 4 1/2 inch
Fox shocks (the new BDS ones)
Flat belly skid
Fox steering stabilizer
Rear currie anti rock ( to match the front that's already on it)
All energy suspension body mounts
G2 diff covers
Genright led taillights and turn signals

Now if you haven't read my previous thread about the " wreck" check my profile it will explain what happened

I will be updating this thread with photos as is goes along.

I forgot to mention I am a VERY impatient person when it comes to my vehicles. This will be a long 2 weeks.

Lucky I still have my "TOW" rig to drive

Subscribed! Unless your dead set on a "flat" belly pan for some reason I'd think about the savvy UA if you've never looked into it before. It's pretty intense.

NICE MAN!!! I've been there but just the engine rebuild. It was a lot of work for me and my first engine rebuild but now my Jeep runs like a champ and never felt better about its reliability after I personally saw and put my engine back together and in.

It makes you really appreciate your work.

Hopefully you'll upgrade to a stronger oil pan this time around so it doesn't happen again.

Aww, that's an old joke.

Example: about 12 years ago, my friend hydrolocked the engine in his YJ while wading through a deep puddle. I towed him to our mechanic, who asked what happened. Without missing a beat, my friend Mark responded, "the oil pan failed to contain a connecting rod."

disagree....there are times to tinker in the garage for years on a project, and then there are times to get it back on the road.

just because you pay someone to turn the wrenches doesn't mean you are not a real jeeper

and who has a frame straightener laying around?

I'm not saying he's not a real jeeper. It's just a connection thing. I feel more connected with it if I do the work then if I sent it off. Obviously some things like frame straightening you have to send it out. But then again my best friend has one and I can use it whenever I want

And I do applaud him. He picked out some awesome gear and it will look and be completely badass. And I am morally jealous.

I even spent some $ on the tow rig. NFAB light cage with 8 inch pro comp lights.

Yes I realize this is a jeep forum but we can't treat our tow rigs as redheaded step children. Can we?

And the reason I'm paying to have all this done is I work 6 days a week and am very impatient if I did it all myself it would be this time next year before it was done

It was about $2400 total after I bought new pistons and everything. I also had it bored out a little more because it was scratched up on the inside of the poison walls and had it put through an acid bath to clean it up.

I can't remember the exact model right now but I'll check it out and get back to you
