First thing is did was start sanding it down and do a comp cut on it. Now i was working on this all last summer in my Florida bay, "my driveway" with limited tools. But i sure kept busy every night. The joys of being single. I Picked up another rolling chassy for it and stripped it down. The one it came with was junk.

Time to make this frame a little stronger. Maybe over kill. 1/4 inch c channel plated on the back side. I got a good deal on the steel, couldnt pass it up. I added 6 inches to the rear of the frame. And also extended the flat surface where my rear axle front hanger went so i could strech my rear axle back 6 inches and still have a good flat surface for my hanger.

Got the brakets made to mount the axles out of the donor truck. Baught a cage from my buddy Sharp Machine. Well we werent buddies when i baught it. Seen he had a jeep frame outside his garage so i thought it would be a good idea to stop by. Since that day i leared alot about gay jeeps. Thanks Jason. He helped me out with alot of parts and some very good advise and info. Good guy to deal with.

Checking out how the bumper is going to mount and mocking up how big this thing is going to be. All i wanted was a spring over and i figured the spring were 2.5 lift springs that were military wraped. Luckfully it ended up being a little bit smaller.

The beauty of a motor i was going to put in that poor jeep. LOL re sealed the whole thing. Changed my mind and sold if for not much more than i had into the seal kit. Thats life. Sharp machine was building a jeep with a 5.3 in it. He got my mind on the right track. Next thing i know i was the proud owner of a really clean 2000 5.3, 4l60e, wiring harness and computer. Was said they only had 25,000 on them. And from how it runs and shifts i believe it.

This thread started with a lie...........

Good to see you have a build thread, now you can remind yourself for years how much you spent on it.

If he's gay or not, I guess I would not know for sure? lol

Got it back up north and in my dads fiberglass repair shop for the winter. Wanted willys style fenders so i customized mine. Had to add glass to where they had their sweet fender vents. And where flare was on the wheelwell and bottom of fender so it was all flush. Also a sweet hood scoop came with the jeep. LOL Bet you can guess what kinda people owned this jeep. lol

The body all sanded down and ready to get bed lined. Used a product called SEM. Tintable bedliner. Added Hugger orange to the mix. Squirted it and this is what the final product was. I am happy with how it turned out. Turns alot of heads.

Next was to spice up the hood. Took some foam. Cut it down. Glued it together with epoxy and taped it down to my hood. Once it dried shaved it down and threw some glass on it. Not bad for acouple hours worth of work.

Mocked up the body to see how she was going to look. Put the cage back in. Thats the best way to move it is pick it up by the cage. Off to my buddys shop to do the fabrication next.

The benifits of your buddy going out of town on vacation for a week. Plasma cutter, mig welder here i come. Fabed up some motor mounts using stock mounts with some custom mounts we made up out of 2x2 square stock and a plate of steel to bolt to the frame. Tcase mount was out of a 89 chevy blazer. I couldnt have asked for a better fit. Had to weld acouple tabs on the outside of the mount but went well. I Put the motor more towards the passenger side to give me room for my steering shaft. Found out at that point that i was not going to be able to run a driveshaft on the passenger side. So i then had to change plans and start looking for a ford drivers drop axle . And run a np241 conected to the 4l60e. Stuck a set of my buddys 40s on it to see how big it was going to be. My 38 pj dirt grips were just about the same size. But i didnt have rims for them yet.

Wheels showed up. Great price for a decent looking rim. Got the pjs mounted on the shop floor. Added 20 ounces of air soft bbs to each tire. They sure ride nice. All loaded up and ready to head back to whitehall for the summer. Still has alot of work left. Still just a rolling chassy with a motor and trans.
