frankenstein_yj reviving an old thread here but i have been busy on my frankenstein lately here she is.
11-16-2009 08:54 PM
frankenstein_yj got the exhaust done and the fenders put on and the front brake lines all done today. (reallyh not lookin forward to the back one) tom go and pick up the trans mounting plate and then shes ready for the road!!!!
11-15-2009 10:39 PM
frankenstein_yj thanks guys. well the parts store around here dont have the rolls for some reason. i guess ill have to hit up the speed shop. i was tossing around the idea of a yj tub on a tj frame and chassis but that would have been way too much fab me right now (lol i built this one in the lawn lol) too bad tho cause i passed up a smokin deal on one a few months ago
11-15-2009 08:08 PM
tet1070 Any parts store should carry the rolls of brake line. The Jeep is looking good. I have plans of pretty much doing the same thing, But I want a TJ frame.

89PBR96 Good progress man looking good keep up the good work
11-15-2009 06:35 PM
frankenstein_yj I finally got to drive it today!!! even tho it was only from the lawn to the driveway it was still an awesome feeling. yep i have tons of motivation im on leave and "frank" has been keeping me from going home to see the family. so i bought brake line today but it was the pre cut and already flared ones and all of them are too short where do u guys go to get the rolls of brake line?
11-14-2009 04:19 PM
morphious alright good to see that u got her up and going u were really motivated that's a fast build up even if its not done yet
11-14-2009 10:11 AM
frankenstein_yj SHE STARTED!!!!!!!!! 7 days of putting her together and finally the most rewarding sound ever!!! (even with out an exhaust)
11-12-2009 08:59 PM
frankenstein_yj oh i just thought of something did 88 yj's come with the 20 gallon poly tanks cause if they didnt the PO of my frame put one in therefore i dont kno what year sending unit would be in it
11-12-2009 07:36 PM
frankenstein_yj shes starting to look like a jeep again!!!
11-12-2009 07:33 PM
frankenstein_yj thanks man. i think i have all the wiring figured out everything (at the moment) seems to work as advertised but i have a new question, i have a frame that i am assuming had a '88 4.2 on it. when i bought it it had a gas tank and sending unit. if it is from a 4.2 will it have enough pressure to run the '91 4.0?

As a matter of fact i have collected the cans of whoop-ass for the Torx guy from many of my Jeep buddies and have combined them in a 55 gallon drum.

He's gonna be sore.

87 i was on sems website and you can search for dealers by zip code

keep the 4 banger axles. six's could come with as hi a gearing as 3.07, you don't want that.
