Plop Thanks, wish I hadn't sold this one. But can't complain too much because I ended up with one thats better.

sevenservices Good job w/the body work. I'll be replacing some cancer on my 94' this summer...
07-23-2010 12:24 PM
toshpate hmm my rear shock broke off like that too, rusted clean off
07-22-2010 09:31 AM
Plop I had 32x11.50 MT/R's on the sand.
07-18-2010 11:18 PM
schnutzy just curious, were you still running 31s in those beach pics?
07-18-2010 11:08 PM
yotefever Thanks for posting the adventure
Rust sure is a pain!!! I have been working on my '87 most of the summer to help it make it through another winter.
Looking forward to the next adventure with a tj. Maybe you could just put some rectangular headlites and say it's a yj.

Plop Ya its gone. I am happy its gone, but sad to see it go. It was very strange to watch it drive away, I got to chuckle a little bit because the guy stalled it out at the end of the driveway.

Currently I have a cheapo 92 Explorer only $450 and needed a clutch and it came with the clutch kit. Only thing I have into it is a flywheel $60 and a slave cylinder about $70. So for $580 I have an alright vehicle so I can save up for something decent.

legman68 It's been a few days, is it gone Dude, that's some major work you put into that baby, you got mad skills Hope you get into another one soon!
07-10-2010 09:58 PM
Plop Well, its a thing where everything is for sale; and someone wanted to buy my Jeep first, so hopefully someone will buy my Mustang or else I can't buy the newer Jeep I want.
07-10-2010 06:13 PM
JDsDream Again? Are you sure this time? What happened?
07-10-2010 05:06 PM
Plop Well the Jeep is preety much gone/ Sold I took a depsoit for it and getting the rest thurs. Now if I can just sell the mustang I will be buying a TJ soon, which is the goal. So as soon as I sell the other ride I will be jeepin again.
06-20-2010 08:47 PM
Plop I didn't get many pics or any with me involved since I was taking the pictures. I will have to see if my brother and sister-in-law got any pics. Some I don't know what was going on. lol

06-20-2010 08:43 PM
Plop I couldn't get rid of it; I felt like a dick telling the guy no, after everything was setup and "going" to happen
06-20-2010 07:49 PM
JDsDream That is GREAT news Plop. After all the time, work, and $$ you put into it, I hated to see you give it up. Congrats and welcome back.
06-20-2010 07:24 PM
Plop I have some good, awsome and bad news. Good news, I made a tire carrier for the jeep, the awsome news it that I am keeping it/ got it running and took it to the dunes, and the bad news is that I almost killed it because it over heated and I didn't realize it; I caught it in enough time to turn it off so it didn't seize up, it was so hot that the coolant was boiling. I got some pictures that I will post later on.
06-13-2010 09:13 PM
Plop Thanks, its kind of sad to see it go because I put so much work and money into it. So I hope I will run into money sooner rather than later for a newer one that starts off with less rust to fix because that was a PITA

I will have to get some final pictures before it actually leaves.
06-13-2010 09:09 PM
hannahuffster You wont save anything in MPG on a 2.5 VS a 4.0. BUT YOUR WORK LOOKS GREAT!
06-13-2010 08:58 PM
JDsDream I'm sorry to hear that. I have been keeping up with this thread since day one and you have done some great work. Just because you don't have a Jeep right now, does not mean that you are not a part of this family. You will get another jeep soon, but in the meantime I am sure that there are those of us on here that could use a little advice from time to time.
06-13-2010 08:51 PM
Plop Got some sad news... The Jeep died and someone wanted to trade me a working F250 for it. I will be back within a year or two with a new Jeep once I get the money to buy a TJ.
05-12-2010 11:27 PM
90yjHMG Good save was a POS now a work of art hope everything gets done cant wait to see new pics mine will be done in a few weeks.
04-25-2010 06:28 PM
nyvulcanman im goin to design mine this week i was looking at it today i will let you know what i come up with i am thinking of welding the bolt rite in place but not sure yet
04-25-2010 11:25 AM
Plop Its probably going to be in about two weeks, I have to wait until I am into the new house.

I am going to be making it out of 3/16" metal, not sure on how I want to design it yet.
04-25-2010 10:50 AM
nyvulcanman did u fix ur shock mount yet i noticed im goin to have to fix mine its not broke yet but it doesnt look good when u do i would like to see a pic of it thanks
04-21-2010 08:21 PM
Plop forgot about the pic
04-21-2010 08:12 PM
Plop Thanks, and I finally got a recent pic. Only because I put the rear TJ flares on. I hope the 32's that will be here on the 29th won't look dumb with such a huge opening in the rear.

Once I am all done with moving, I will be redoing the back of the tub. I have to do it now because the main support finall rusted through on the back corner; So the next update will be a big one.

A giant to do list for the next part of the project:

Inside floor above the tank has to be completly done
the sides of the inside will be done /back of the tub/
2x3x 3/16 support for the back
all new sheet metal for the back
shock tower/mount for the broken off piece
paint and install CJ tailgate
then round LED tail lights.
make a new rear bumper out of 2x4x0.25
repair rust hole in the frame in the back pass. wheel well area
new rims (same as I have) and mount the MT/R's

dasaffen wow you did an amazing job on that jeep. HUGE difference from what you started with. Sounds like you have a nice project on your hands, good luck.
04-20-2010 09:10 PM
89PBR96 Where is the good pics at man Jeep sounds like she is still coming along man
04-20-2010 08:58 PM
Plop Treated 'er good today; I did the oil, plugs and wires, so now the Jeep is running like a champ again.
04-13-2010 08:27 PM
Plop Definitly better looking, but it can look bad if ya don't get them lined up the same on both sides which happened to me. Gonna fix that when I do new fenders.
04-13-2010 06:25 PM
nyvulcanman thanks i just think they look better than a stock yj flare
