Frame Up VM 2.8 Diesel TJ

Just wanted to share some photos of a Jeep TJ that my students are currently building at the high school where I teach. It's a 2000 TJ SE that had a blown 2.5 liter and a 3 speed automatic. Shortly after buying the TJ I found a great deal on an 05 Jeep Liberty CRD that we're using as a donor. We used a ton of stuff from the KJ including the engine, 545RFE 5 speed automatic transmission, NP242 transfer case, Chrysler 8.25" rear axle, instrument cluster, steering column, ABS system, complete wire harness, front wheel bearings and the center stack of the dash.
