Ibuildembig Buenos tardes. Rj in the basement garage till spring. Still have to realign the grill, wheel alignment, and work with the insurance and licensing.

06blackmax Hey Regan, thought I'd check in and see how you guys are doing. I thought this would be tarring up the back roads by now?!

After reviewing the pictures I would have to concur.

Ibuildembig Thanks man I appreciate the compliments. OM me and we can talk about the YJ parts biz.

Here's some updates, click the first pic for the video

superduty_5.9 Great build! Your craftsmanship is awesome. Dad had a 79 Renegade with the 304. I have a 88 and 89. YJ's. I also read you SOA swap thread. Took several weeks at work. Ha.

Just a few questions. Just curious. You get alot of YJ's in. Do you ever resell them or just scrap them? You said 40 or 50 of them in a short time period. The ones you cut up look way better than some decent stuff around here in the salt belt. Around here you might get lucky to find a rusted beat up YJ for $2000. Say you buy it and part it out. Where would the money be made? Around here nobody wants a 4.0l of the 4.2l. Craigslist is full of them. Everybody is swapping to a LS engine or diesel like me. So if you have a rusted out tub, rusted frame, a good running 4.0 that you can't give away. All you have left is small parts and maybe $350 in scrap steel.

Just curious how to make a few bucks on these YJ's. Thanks

Will those be weld on or bolt on mounts? I'm fine with either type.

As much as I can get lol....no really my goal is to make it where anyone can drive it and it wont have issues. The stock/aftermarket setup was too picky and couldn't supply the air it needed.

He calls our jeep cams jeep. Lol. Anyways loved reading the build. Like others have stated you are an inspiration to all other jeepers
