When you get down to your frame, if you are going down to bare frame. I suggest checking into having it powder coated. I had mine sand blasted and coated for $375.00. Just a thought of you go that far.

Your jeep is looking awesome and as others have said. Thank you so much for keeping this country safe.

87 Florida YJ I can't believe the difference those wheels and tires make! Absolutely great looking machine and looks brand new. If you end up making the inside look like the outside its going to be the gold standard for '93's. Dont stop this thread.

I may PM you when time gets closer to get some general info of the area if that's ok? By the way, your jeep is coming along good, looks great!

The crappy street radials finally are cooked, and now I'm ready to start building.
This is going to be a slow build as I get time and funds to add and modify.

Some plans for the future are Lift, Wheels and Tires, Body and Frame Restoration, 350 swap, dana 44 swap.

I started the lift wheels and tires yesterday. Back half is done.

When dropping the skid, I realized that the previous owner jacked up the nuts on the inside of the frame and rigged it with 2 studs coming down instead of in . I'm picking up flat stock and repairing the frame the right way today and fixing it right. Will post pics as it continues.

yea, slowed me down quite a bit, however I would rather do it right then just rig it up. Next summer body and motor are coming out to do a complete restoration on the frame, I cant wait for that.

incizion Hopefully my buddy is done with my new rocker guards. He works in a fab shop, I bought he diamond plate, he is powder coating and water jetting a surprise in for me.

incizion So here are the pictures from the frame repair, and the finished product. Notice the mismatching wheels and tires? When will they arrive?
08-16-2013 01:33 PM
RufBoy It looks good so far. I can't wait to see more pics. Posting the picture of the rear done and the front not done yet was great. It really makes a great comparison. I'm in the 1st stage of making sure that everything is mechanically sound before I move to the lift stage. Good luck with the build! Thanks for serving.

blakeq63, thanks for your service as well.

I would def paint it motor-less and paint the engine compartment too, but I would clean the tub up and get it ready for paint, paint the whole thing then deal with coating the inside. I think I read it right Im going to do the paint and body when I go to pull my motor between swaps, get it mocked and then paint
