I originally did the drivers fender when I did the drivers side, it turned out pretty well. I did the passenger fender seperate, I have been working on it here and there. I took the flare off of it and the fender was rotton under it, so I cut out the rotton area and just welded a new piece on today. I was going to do a thin bondo layer today but my brother and I decided to go to the junkyard.

Got the fender done, just have to put it on the jeep. I started working on the hood, sanded it down a little. I just got to paint the middle bulge, I am painting that grey with the rest of the hood black and the doors are gonna be black.

The body is probably all for this year, I am probably gonna buy my brothers 31" MT/R's since he did a sas on his ranger.

I might leave it alone because I was thinking about putting my explorer on 1 tons.

Bad idea, that YJ deserves to be put on 1 tons a lot more than some explorer does.

yea I know, but when it comes to the explorer I get lazy so it probably wont ever happen.

I want to build a v8 for the Jeep, Use a Chevy 350 so then I would be using Chevy 1tons

Oh and I did the grille yesterday and painted the light trim black, it definitley looks killer now. Just got to put the glass in the windshield frame and then on the truck, also got to paint the cowl and teh front will be done. Pics will be tomorrow since today is jammed with a shitload of school stuff.

id leave the fuel injected 6 in it. it has plenty of torque, and its fuel injected. id give my left arm for a fuel injection system for my 383, it has a quadra jet and does ok, but nothing beats efi.

Looking really good, I like the black on silver look.

Hey I have nearly full 2 sets of YJ hinges (yours look a little rusty). Got anything you may want to trade?

LOL that one is coming off, I have an un bowed gate in the yard that I need to paint black. The progress on the jeep is gonna be super slow now since I have to juggle school and work and homework again. damn school, sucks during the present but so much better in the long run.

I got some of teh back cleaned up and painted. I got the new gate on and did it in black and spayed some bedliner on the bottom portion of it. And yes I am not leaving that hole on the back I just wanted to get rid of all the green.
