Thanks!

No. No sanding at that point... That WAS the color when I bought it... So i guess yeah, it did start out pink in a way... Haha! But it had spent about 14 years in the sun in Texas (it was never in a garage according to the PO) and got sun-faded really bad. He said the original color was "bright red"...

Hahaha! Nooooo... It was just super sun-faded... See above.

This is how it was when I picked it up at the beginning of last year. 1994 model soft and hard top, A/C, new interior, 93k miles, new turf savers.


Slowly progressed to this stage: Tube fenders, armor, wheels, tires, tire carrier, winch and lighting etc.... Still have a ways to go until I'm done... Wait, done? lol Jeeps are never done.

I don't really have many good "before" pics, simply because I don't take a lot of pics haha. I've been working on getting this thing trail/road worthy for a couple years now and it's just about there.. for now..

here's a before.. it's after I removed the factory chrome overlay. Old worn out BFGs, 3" BL, Shackle Lift, tcase drop etc (all from PO)



$5K later and here's how she sits today. All work done by me so that's just cost for replacing/upgrading everything.. Orange beadlocks on order, set to be in on 2/21 and then I'll paint the entire jeep black

Posting this makes me realize how much I've actually done and I think it's time I started a build thread so I can keep up with what I've done haha

I had issues getting my spring mount bolts free my impact didn't have enough ass so I was only able to get my boomerangs installed with my 33's. One night between Wednesday and Friday I'll be going to the shop my buddy works at and I'll be using his impact that's puts out a bolt shattering 1,000 ftlbs and use his oxy/ace torch for heat.
