Default Adding to my Jeep family

95 YJ
2.5l
Soon to be sprung over, needs a little work but I think I got a pretty good deal considering wranglers are usually pretty pricey in a no rust condition. Here's a link to things that I will need for the build.

Started cutting out all the rust, the fenders are pretty bad and the driver's side floorboard is pretty much gone. Other than that just some surface rust in normal spots. Plan on making the leaf spring perches for the spring over this week and patching up the floor with some sheet metal. I'll keep you updated.

Mine t. But I think mine was because it was my first wrangler. Looks like you have a little bit of rust there to work out. Flat fender it and go from there.

Got the rusty floor cut out on driver's side, bought rear w/ 4.88s and cut all the brackets off. Free front bumper mounted up and cut the ends down, was a little to wide for my taste, will weld them back up soon. Will start making spring perches for the spring over this weekend. Got a little wheeling in today, the snow isn't 10 feet deep anymore so it was pretty easy going only got high centered once.

Looks like fun. It's amazing how much extra clearance you get by cutting the fenders up. lol

Yea, everything is stock right now but I'm sure i could fit 31's fine. I cut them up because they were rusted to hell anyway, might have to get new ones when I do the tube fenders.
