My HELL ON WHEELS build

So, I've been waiting to start posting my YJ build as it's been slow and have had to do (most) stuff as needed and (some) stuff as wanted. I got it a year ago as a straight up trade for a 2001 VW Jetta I had... I made out on that deal!! I've always wanted a Wrangler, got bit by the bug years ago (thanks to a friends family and one of my old shop boss's) and have always looked at them, so this one came to me and I had to have it. Here's some pics to show you it's journey so far since I've had it.

Time to get rid of the "death shackles" and install the RC 2.5" lift with the 5/8" boomerang shackles... All in total I gained almost 4"

Looking good. Nice work on the frame.rust is always fun. Keep up the good work. Slow and steady build is what owning a jeep is all about. Enjoy

Thanks, I'm happy with it so far. I have to thank my Brother in-law for help with the frame and his superb welding skills. Next two things on the list are a winch and a locker for the front diff... not necessarily in that order. Little by slow it's coming along to where I want it... for now lol.
