Thank you, It is very clean for 93, only has 120k miles and all original paint and interior, had a 2" stack of records from maintenance work and owners manual. LOL! Im a sucker for that kind of stuff when buying anything.

Frame and everything else is impeccable! not a spec of rust anywhere, not even a ding.. Clean car fax with no accidents and 1 owner. one of the cleanest Yj's stock I've seen in a while. And best part, I work for dealer and someone traded in and i got it for $1900.00!!!! LOL!!

I got the doors and top all stripped down, stripping the jeep this week to get ready to paint next weekend. Excited to begin the process.

I will sell everything I'm not using, I will probably end up replacing 90% of everything, I did decide to keep the top and full doors, I bought some half doors today so I will paint everything together. after jeep is painted I will install the lift and start replacing everything else from there like full interior,seats,A/C system,seat belts and all hardware. Let me know what you need and ill let you know if I will have it.

That looks badass! I'm going with the MetalCloak fenders and rock rails, what do you have for lift? I was toying around with using the 40/15.5/20 but I want to make sure I have enough clearance.

Thanks! I was shocked when I put it up in the air to check it out, not one spot of rust anywhere or even dirt, it looks like a 3 year old jeep.. I really did luck out with this one.

Just about ready to start prepping for paint, I'll finish up rest of disassembling tomorrow, so far everything looks great! Still impressed at condition, even under windshield frame and without carpet no rust. Very happy..

Ok, one more day to finish up, pretty much taking down to bare bones to paint' by far biggest pain was removing windshield brackets' definitely easier to pull the dash, glad I did, Friday going to prep and paint this weekend, got all new hardware and start reassemble everything, I threw out a lot. Starting with everything new from hardware nuts and bolts to hinges and brackets. Going a little jeep crazy!! Lol.

All set for tomorrow, remove hood and ready to prep and paint. After removing everything still amazed at the condition, no rust at all except small piece behind the seal of the rear door. Going to remove all heater components and start from square one after paint.

keep it coming brother, can't wait to see the progress. I'm getting ready to dig into my 93 once i return from deployment so this gives me something to look forward to! how hard was it to take the dash and door panels off? was it pretty self explanatory or did you run into a few "scratch your head moments"? please share any issues you had to spare me from the same... thanks!

I've done a couple of these before, there really is not much to it as far as stripping everything, I do recommend using some PB Blaster on as many nuts and bolts as you can and let sit for day or so before removing, the one issue I had and I think pretty much anyone with a YJ can relate is removing the windshield brackets, the nuts behind the dash turn and its tricky to get to them without pulling the dash, I also bought a new stainless bolt kit from front to back so I don't have to reuse most of the old ones, it was a $170.00 well spent. The full doors also were not that bad to disassemble, I am going to put back as many new items as I can get my hands on to make reassembly go smooth. I'll keep on posting as I go, thanks for the interest.
