My winter project - With pics!

Since my old CJ frame is getting worse everytime I wheel it and the body is about to fall off the mounts, I decided it was time to start looking for a new project. And here it is!



$500 worth of Jeep Glory!



It is a '95 YJ. I'm going to put my engine, trany and T-case under it as well as my D-44's. I'ts going to have a reverse shackle spring over in the front and coils in the rear. I'm going to try to swap as much CJ stuff as I can so I can keep the cost down [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]. I'm also going to finish off the cage, streach the wheel base and all the other cool thinks that are easiest to do when all you are working with is a frame! Please wish me luck!

I didn't think that it was a bad deal. The tubs gotta be worth at least that. Here is a pic of the dash. It's comming out and my custom CJ dash will take it's place.

Re: My winter project - With pics!

I'd say you got a darn good deal. By the way, if you hear of any other such finds near our neck of the woods for such a price, I would be happy to hear about it. Have fun this winter!! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I work with a guy that is selling a '79 CJ-5 for $300. It is in pieces, but I think it is all there. Let me know if you want any info.

Re: My winter project - With pics!

I think jdoggmoney wants a 7 or a YJ for a tub, but I'd like to know more. I have a couple people looking for projects down here. PM me or email me with the particulars.
