    louie's yj build ( what the hell im i thinking)

    so i have a 89 jeep yj 4.2 stander 4.10gears. so i did a soa and body lift last summer and wheeled the hell out of it now the frame is bad and the body is bad.

    So it time to rebuild the hole thing starting with the body got it all sandblasted inside and out after the sandblasting we have alot more hole's lol
    so i need new body sides floors and alot of support. putting led tail lights in and i hope tube fenders. here are some pics to start i will try to up date as much as i can....trying to save as much as i can as im a young guy with houes and wife and kids. im new to the jeep thing so open to input

    Thanks Louie

    Sounds like a boatload of work!

    Looking forward to the progress and piccies.

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    the axles should be strong, a dana 44 (maybe high pinion) front, and 9" rear. the only problem i see is the front axle might be cast with perches for radius arms. but throwing a coil sprung,radius arm front end'll be pretty easy with the body off.
