I have a standard and kinda wish I had a auto
Thanks Ian. But Texas might be a little far to do some swapping. I love the Auto and the wife can drive it when she wants. I am more of a leisure driver with my jeep and not as much trail rides. So I can't answer for the others. Other than i get tiered of shifting in the city. I like to do country rides and not even break 45mph, so it's just put in drive and go. I hope to be painting in about two weeks will get pics up then, and just dropped rims off at custom painting yesterday.

No reason other than I had it. I never thought about changing it...

I end up redoing the under body to my liking, and i love the monster liner in the tub...

What you think?
How much of the monstaliner did it take you to do the tub?

aphares I have the tub ready, and getting it cleaned. Do you think i should bring the liner around over the lip, or keep it inside the lip?
05-24-2013 07:52 PM
aphares The thicknes of it, and lack of texture,. Picture makes it look better than it is...

I will get it flipped over when it dryes, but will be using this in the tub. Will post pic when done.

87 YJ Restore

Hi,

I would like to introduce myself.

Arthur P. and am starting a 87 YJ restore. I wanted to say "HI" and hope you all don't mind the next year in questions. I like the forum, can't wait to get started.

This is my 87 and the frame is rotten so I am doing a ground up restore.

Thanks (in advance)

Art
