Wckd YJ

I'm going to start a build page for my 95 YJ 4cyl 5spd. I bought my jeep February 2014 it was in rough shape but mechanically good, other than 4wd didn't engage but that was disclosed by PO .

Seeing rust for me isn't normal being in the Nevada desert, if you don't mind me asking what did you pay for your jeep? I know there is a guy out here that's buys jeeps and takes them back east to sell.

Reminds me of my early 70's Bronco...I didn't realize the amount of rust on the Jeeps north and east until I joined this forum. It's great to see the being put in to them. My recent rebuild on A 95 had 0 rust...great job for tackling these projects where many would just walk away...

This is a daytime pic of the LED dash light mod chose green LED was a easy and successful mod. May change the color once I decide on exterior paint. Going to monstaline the interior of the tub.

Question for anyone reading this. I'm trying to decide if I want to paint the lower half doors the same green as the good parts or leave them flat black? Possibly the rims if not the doors just to break it up a little. Let me know thoughts please

I will get a few daytime pics tomorrow I still have to mount my reverse lights. I bought 2" white LED lights. They look like a hockey puck thinking of installing under tail gate in that area not 100% on that yet

Looks good. Did the similar thing. Ended up moving gas filler opening around the side and putting back up lights under brake lights. Makes filling it with gas much easier. No 90' bend. Put liscence plate on bumper. Cant wait to see your ideas. That's what's nice about this forum. Were abouts in Ny are ya. I'm in Watkins glen.

Daytime photo

I actually mounted the bottom mount hole under the trim for the gas filler worked out well. I had thought about moving the fill location, but didn't want to curse what is working well (knocks on wood)

I ended up cutting the 90 out of the hoses and used some stainless steel pipe I had to spliced them back straight. Was gonna try and use some out of a tj but couldn't find one at junk yard. Not sure if they would have worked or not.

Has anyone ever or heard of anyone installing these types of light as headlights? I have been tossing the idea around and wanted to hear opinions and legal issues on it. Thanks

I've looked into it but I think they might be to bright but below the headlights can be done.
