I pulled the trans and tcase the other night. Next is the 4 banger motor. I should be getting a parts jeep for the drivetrain I am pulling, if it doesn't work out I would then have a comeplete motor to sell.

4.0L and an auto, so I will have to sell the auto and find an AX-15 and a computer for a 93 4.0L HO with a Stick.

A decent update;
I got some 33x13.50-15 LTB's from Tweak acouple weeks ago now I just have to get rims that are the right bolt pattern.

I pulled the motor and the trans the week before the motor.

I pulled the top, doors, tailgate, wheels, most of the interior and hood off/out; I made a cart for the top and doors to keep it mobile, but its not complete.

I got a parts Jeep from a guy on a Wrangler forum which currently looks more complete than the one I am working on. I got it without the top, doors, hood, and wheels. It is a 6cyl auto, but I am going to sell the trans because I am doing an AX-15.

Pulled the axles out and seperated the tub from frame. I also put a sunroof in my S10, today was very productive. I think I will have to sit back and have a cold one now.

Cleaned up the frame a couple days ago, and picked up a D35 for cheap with 4.10 gears to match my front axle.








My goal for the weekend is to have the holes patched and coat the frame and hopfully have it rolling around on the axles. My tires are going to swapped onto rims with the right bolt pattern too, my brother is swapping me rims because he has the B.P. that I need and I have what he needs.

After much anticipation, I finally went to a TJ

To start off:
1997 4.0L 5speed stick 134,xxx miles.
3" lift (pretty sure) with newish 33" BFG A/T's
Color is like a gray/ blue

First mods were to remove all the grates/ mesh on the lights and remove the tiny "spare" and carrier.

Plans (if I keep it long enough)
Long arm
AEV highline
better axles
bigger tires (some sort of M/T)
and put a CJ tailgate on it.

Pics hopefully soon.

Finally have some pics.
Bumper update: no longer using the DOM, don't like the way it looks with the bumper. The main part of the bumper is 'done' and just have to make a lower bumper bracket to tie into the frame because the stock lower postion will no longer work with the design. Then I have to cut two holes in the bumper to put the D-ring mounts on.

Its, been a while so a simple update.

Put a new fender on, so the Jeep have almost no rust.

And swapped on a CJ tailgate, getting close to painting it soon. It cost me more than it should have because I destroyed my sending unit. Didn't diconnect a fuel line.

Also painted my flares and picked up a 4" to replace the lift that is on there. I hope it fixes the handling issue because I am all over the road with it the way it is.
