I got that in '98 or so... It was ordered on accident at the local jeep dealer and my friends uncle worked the parts counter there. I worked at Subway, I filled out 2 cards for free footlongs and he gave me the tire cover

So I have this friend that keeps pushing me to go bigger and tear my shit apart all the time when I don't have a garage. It helps that he had parts he felt I needed :tonka:

Plan as of right now is SOA on the BDS 2" springs, using a 78 F250 front D44 and rear D60 with 37-38" tires. H1 beadlocks. For as often as I drive it, probably get a spool or lincoln locker.

I HATE MUD.... EVEN MORE I HATE THE RUSTBELT

Cleaning it revealed a lot more crap I have to fix.... I said screw it I am not putting it back together like this... the 3/4 ton axles are going in it... in addition to the following pics the rear axle brakes are shot, and the front knuckle u-joints are bad again. It would cost me as much in parts as to throw the axles in the shed under it :roll:

Looks like a theft recovery out there R)

Holy memories Batman! I welded large patch panels in those exact same 2 spots (drivers side floorboard and drivers side of the tub at the rear of the fender flare). Then I had to take a shim out of my door striker to get the door to latch. That was about 2 years ago. Last year I started cutting and welding patches into the passenger side. And had to take a shim out of that striker too. And then I prepped and primed and undercoated the frame and bottom. Last month I did a complete rear brake job...brake lines, parking brake cables, wheel cylinders, shoes, drums...sigh. Hoping to get a few more years of wheeling out of it. I understand your pain. Good luck on your project. I am looking forward to more pictures as you fix it up. Hopefully we'll get the chance to meet again.

Your neighbors' property values just fell 20%, Jacob. Looks like a cool plan, BTW.

The old guy thinks it's funny, the enjoy watching the vehicles come apart and back together again in a couple days. Funny thing is that is a city lot :tonka: The city bought the house and tore it down, everyone hated looking at that. The old owners had a FSJ that was beat to crap, they hated looking at that, but my stuff they don't seem to mind

We stripped the motorhome over 2-3 days in that same lot and they laughed :tonka:

I use it for my driveway now, because my driveway is so tiny the jeep barely fits.

I was going to, but the front needs axle joints and seals, and the rear needs brakes... I'm not going to replace them when I am swapping them out anyway... I realllllly don't need to be lifting right now, but I will see what happens.
