PStov98TJ Post a picture of the suspension up. Shocks, springs, steering components. That 3" "lift" might be a 3" bl (body lift).

kshaws21 I'd remove the milk jugs first. No cost and will look much better!

PA Blondie Other than the pinion seal needing replaced and the front diff looked at(leaking, might just be from the pinion seal) not sure yet. Need the time to give it a once over. Will probably need a new clutch.

jherrington whats wrong wit it mechanically?

PA Blondie Thanks, I will keep that in mind. I will be doing work on her over the next few years until she is in the condition I want. Mechanical work first then I will work on the superficial elements.

See the giant rubber "pucks", more like towers in your case, in this picture?
They're right at the corners where the panted body meets the frame. That's a pretty massive body lift. You're going to want to have that swapped out to factory height or at least only 1-1.25inchs in combination with a 2-3inch spring lift at some point.

Other than that jeep looks good!

n00g7 Awesome, and it looks like there are a few minor things to fix! The perfect kind of jeep!
