holy shit roger, looks like you are going to need 2 spools of wire for the wleder now.

i think they sell replacement floor pans. that would be ALOT easier than trying to get flatstock in there.

remind me next time you are over to give you them two rolls of insulation.

yeah I can get pans but I think flat stock will be fine for it, I will make it work, got a hammer to make my bends. And yes will get the insulation later this week being you got extra time off.

Well got some more done tonight. Greasyhands came over and gave me a hand for a little bit. Got Rest of the floor cut out in the rear, and the hole cut for the gas tank to be dropped in. Now just debating if I want to cut and open up the fenders or just leave them be, more stock look, being I'm running full size axles and inside of the tire will be flush with the outside of the stock fender flare, I'm thinking I may just leave it and call it a day. If not can cut it out later.









My helper working hard...

yep, work with what you got, i like it when i see a project like this, instead of taking the easy way out and find a better body, you take the harder route and fix what you got. i get a lot of satisfaction taking somthing old and rusty and bringing it back to life.
nice work

All together this is my 5th XJ and I had one MJ in there. But more or less this is my third rig. First the MJ, what really got me into it, then had kids somehow, so switched to XJ which was a great for a season the rolled it and hydroed it, now went to get into a wrangler and ended back up with this one, which rust wise was in better shape than my last XJ. the rocker are at least solid (for now).

Sorry Freak not a big baller like you and can just buy a built rig.

He said that's the plan. Said something you wanted him to ride with you to teach you how to drive or something?

well got paint and some grinder stuff to get the floors prepped for new stock. Found a sheet of stock for $45. so should be all set. Practice some welding, so I now have an understanding of what a weld is suppose to look like. So will get things prepped and get the metal next week to start redoing the floors.
