I know its kinda worthless without pics, but I got some TJ Flares to work with. Sold a few things and working on selling other stuff. And temporarily put the 31" BFG M/T's n black cragars on the grey jeep. It looks sexy now, and not retarded looking.

The plans for the new Jeep is to get the body work all smooth; this one is nicer to work with since It has pretty much NO RUST and one smallish area where there is a dent. I am gonna buy a DA-Sander to start cleaning the parts up. I want to do things right and the way I want on this one, not to just get it done and be alright. I am going to throw the 1" body lift on this one and put some 35's on and if there isnt enough room I am going to throw a set of 1" shackles on.

I am doing a CJ [jeep] tailgate and some round LED Tail lights. I Want to do some Dick Cepek rims but they're too common lately. I am going to take parts from the grey jeep and put it on the red one, take the motor/trans/case/electrical and dash out of the grey and into the red.

I got a Sterling 10.20 from a F250 that Tie Dyed was prting out and I will be looking for a D60 front axle out of a F350 which will take a while. I will be cleaning this up and preping it to go under the red Jeep shortly.

another update: I got an engine hoist, so I will be working on swapping the engine and all the stuff I am going to keep. I will be doing small stuff to clean up and fix while the engine is out of the vehicle. I will be doing the rear main seal, the slave cylinder, the clutch, and paint the things that I can.

So are you planning on building the red one, then selling the gray one? Grey Jeep looks good regardless. I drove by yesterday and you were doing something with your Jeep, I honked but I don't think you saw me.

I thought I heard someone honk, I was working on wiring up trailer lights so I could use my trailer to get the axle.

The grey jeep is falling apart already surprisingly. I am pulling the drivetrain and eclectrical from the grey one (minus the axles obviously) and putting it into the red one. Plus there is a hole in the frame by the rear trac bar mount and is starting to crack. So I am starting the engine transfer after T-Day.

It didnt turn out to what I wanted, and the whole inside of the tub needs floors plus the tub is started to get messed up because of a few bad welds. I am kinda obsessed with having really nice things and the grey one is decent but not up to my quality of nice. And the topping on it all, my frame had a hole in the back around the wheel well hoop and got a good sized crack in it.

He's jealous because I am gonna out do him again.

Well I tore out the roll bar and found a trouble spot that I have to fix. So I have to find a 3/16" plate to fab up and weld there.


Tomorrow I am going to pull the front clip. And Hopefully anything else in the engine compartment that I don't need.


I am not going to paint it before the engine goes in. Maybe rattle can the firewall.
