95 YJ 10 year build

I thought I would show some of the upgrades I 've done to build my YJ over the last 10 years. Being new to the forum I thought it might give folks some ideas for possible projects.

Bought the jeep salvaged 4.0 automatic. First thing I did was pull Dana 44's out of a 80's Wagoner. Replaced all the bearings added Superior axle shafts. Regeared to 4:10 and added front and rear ARB lockers.

Then bought new Weaver springs and went spring over. I then converted to High steer and add PSC power assist setup.

Built a custom swing arm to prevent axle wrap. I started with a terra low on the T'case but when it broke added a Atlas 2.

Adding the Atlas 2 I decided to add cutting brakes because I now could disengage different axles and tractor the jeep in tight spots.

I welded end caps on my front frame tube and made it into a air chamber and ran all my air through it with a air hose quick connect.

I went with allied bead locks and 35" x 15 Kevlar MTR tires. I then built a full cage added master craft suspension seats and crow harnesses.

I bought a Currie spare tire carrier and built off it to carry spare and two Jerry cans along with a ice chest rack.

Cutt front fenders and tube them for flat fender look. Built custome front number setup add Warn 9.5 wench with synthetic line. Built a custom removable each to hold my two 9" Hella lights and coils. Other stuff I did added diff protection, backup lights, spray linered the inside, built custom console for race radio and switches, led headlights, rock lights. Led dash lights, passed the cage. It goes on and on

Very nice...have a question about your bed liner floor.

Did you spray it or roll it, is the texture hard or soft?

Thanks

I bought a spray kit for bedliner on Amazon. It works great all you need it is a compressure. Make sure to sand and prep the bed good. Then degrease or wash before spraying. It's a hard texture finish. Get 6 bottles in the kit for good coverage.

What steps/materials did you use to paint your hood? It looks real good from the pictures.

The hood has a posion spider insert. I got it unpainted. Cleaned it etch primer and sprayed it with rattle can bed liner. The hood itself is rattle can with clear coat. I tend to use rattle can so I can fix it when scratch it up.

I looked everywhere for a storage box to fit and couldn't find one. I bought a 30" break at HF and made it myself.

This is my plan, I have a huge dent in the front of mine and have a replacement hood that needs painted. Is the clear cost rattle can as well? What were your steps to prep? Thanks for the insight.

The paint and clear work the same. Sand the hood down, fix the dents or whatever you need to do. Block sand the repairs so surface is ready. Sand the whole hood with 400 grit. Clean surface with Acetone. Apply 3 coats of etching primer. Let dry completely. Sand the primer with 400 grit. I like to use a spray bottle with water and wet sand until primer is smooth. Might jump to 600 grit for finish sand. Clean the surface good.
When you paint be patient and plan to do all the painting including the clear. Start with a light coat of color and cover the hood it's a base coat. Don't worry if you see through it in areas. Wait about 5 min and apply a second coat you can go a little heavier but don't over do it. Do the same for the third. If you rush the paint will get runs and you will not be happy. Apply the first coat of clear about ten min after final color coat.

Clear can run easy go slow. Do the same with the clear as with color wait 5 min in between coats.

Tips: put paint in warm water prior to painting to warm it up seems to lay on better. Shake the cans good. Use all the same brand of paints.
If you are successful leave the hood alone for 4 or 5 days to dry. Fight your urge to install it. Paint the bottom first so you don't need to flip it when you do the top the most visible.

I really like those rock sliders! Do they tie into the frame or do they hang on the tubs sheet metal?

Right now the slidders don't attach to the frame. When I have time I will be making bars on the back side to brace them to the frame. Wife was complaining that it was to hard to get in the jeep so I threw this together. Really need a ramp for these guys to get in?

I'll be really interested in how those come out. Please post pics of what you make!
I've got to figure out a ramp for mine too. 135lb St. Bernard X with a bad shoulder, 100lb aging chocolate lab, and 70 lb nut job lab shorthair cross 2 y/o
