Default Project PUNISHER

Starting Project Punisher tomorrow with new front and rear bumpers and have tube fenders on order then hopefully body armor within 2 weeks. Then lift and axles. This is going to be a 50/50 rig. Ok so update. I am planning on a engine swap in the spring. Going to a 1.9 TDI turbo diesel engine. Planning on an ax15 toyota hybrid transmission and a dana 300 flipped. And 8.8 rear axle I have already located and a big ? for the front axle. Buying a new JK in the spring for the wife then its the big one. Till then its lots of reading and finding parts.




This is the stuff I ordered except I got the 3" flare.

LOL!! Wasn't it you that said they all look the same all scratched up and covered with mud. But I bet I could get a deal on a silver paint job from Matt with all that extra paint he has.

Man its been a great week. Just found the engine. Its still in the car with only 67k miles on it. Its not ideal but for the extra savings its worth it. It also comes with the car but its been stripped. I figure its still worth a couple hundred in scrap and the wheels, tires, trans and some other things I can sell that I wont need. Just waiting for the trans to be shipped and I can start putting the drivetrain together in the garage.
