Default New build- JK UNLIMITED, frame up- budget build...

So this weekend i decided to drive from Saginaw Mi, to O'Fallen, MO. to buy a Jk unlimited tub, frame, core support and front fenders, also came with dash, steering column, and most of the body's wiring harness..... a pretty decent start to an UNLIMITED(dream Build).....

all in all 20 straight hours driving solo, which sucked ass....

prior to getting this tub, I was fortunate enough to located guy 3o minutes away, who was unfortunate enough to be losing his JK to repossession,due to the fact he doesn't pay his bills.... so I bought

4 Smittybilt armored fenders, a spare tire carrier rear bumper, 4 full hard doors, all power- black colored, 4 inch lift kit, smittybilt rock rails

i got a rear hardtop from Traverse city, freedom panels from Ft. WAYNE

OH I PICKED UP A 6.4 HEMI CRATE ENGINE FROM EBAY LAST YEAR

SO NOW I AM PUTTING ALL OF THIS TOGETHER, I NEED AXLES, TRANNY, TRANSFERCASE, TAILGATE, GAS TANK, TAILLIGHTS, AND A FEW OTHER THINGS.....

HAVE HOOD, GRILL, COWL

NEED SOME TIRES..... AND SEATS....

WAS GOING TO USE A WJ'S SET OF AXLES, BUT SHIT HEAD BROTHER SOLD OUT FROM UNDER ME. WHAT A DB!

SO NOW NEED A SET OF AXLES FOR THIS BUILD TO IT ROLLING...

NEXT HAVE TO WELD UP ENGINE MOUNTS, AND CUT OFF STOCK ONES, AND GET THE AXLES UNDER IT.....'

ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR AXLES????

THOUGHT THAT MAYBE I COULD FIND SOME CHEAP ONES, BUT WHO KNOWS....



PICS COMING....
