Default CJ7 Buildup

I'm having a lot of work done to the CJ and I figured I would display it here for everyone to see how it goes.

starting with my 81 CJ7 I bought about a year ago or so. Its been sitting a while and I almost lost motivation. I even had it up for sale here with not much interest...thankfully. I had a change of heart and with support from the girlfriend, I decided to keep it and start putting some cash into it.

Its been mostly stock except for a minor lift on it.

After meeting Jason from Chelsea Paint and Restoration I decided it would be in good hands with him.

We will call this phase one...

-BDS 4" lift
-YJ spring conversion in the front
-New paint
-Front bumper
-Front corner guards
-recessing new LED tail lights into the body
-BFG Mud Terrains
-DUI ignition system, wires & plugs

next phase is a 4.0 head swap, full cage, transmission, and upgrading the rear to a dana 44. those are the main upgrades but i will be doing a lot of small stuff as well such as replacing gauges, knobs, wiring, and whatever else.
