    I'm trying to avoid any more body lift then necessary because it doesn't serve any useful purpose other then raising the COG even higher. Doesn't show in the picture but the bed is in serious need of repair on the other side anyways to the point where it isn't really connected to the fender any more. I managed to find 2 of my old body lift mounts and may have found a solution to avoid raising the bed or going higher on the body lift.


    I think the shorter of these 2 is for the rear (1" lift mounts)




    Came up pretty close, keep in mind the body is tilted forward a bit so its probably a 1/4" to 1/2" closer




    Then I realized one of the re-enforcement channel / body mount was actually sitting on the cross-member I built, seeing as the main part of the cross-member is 1/4" thick there really isn't a need for the one on the body.






    Provided it lowers it enough for a 1" body lift the only other issue I can see is that the shock mounts will hit and it may be a bit tight for the lines running to the tank

    I really don't look at chopping the bed as mini trucker thing should I need to, its all about the function not the looks in this case.

    I'm back! Took a small hiatus when I moved out of the parents place but I got my new shop set up.


    I took the tub in for sandblasting and waited for that dreadful call to come collect my pile of rust from the floor but surprisingly less parts of the bed most all of it survived intact Ditched what was left of the bed and replaced it with a sheet of 16awg then moved onto the big hole below the Jeep logo on the drivers side. The end product for my patches around the outside could probably be a bit smoother but I didn't want to use any bondo and as little filler as possible.

    Some of the factory mounting points on the body were getting a little weak so out they came. An access hole was cut in them a long time ago when doing the body lift I should have protected it better afterwards, dammn salt!







    All welded up





    Cleaned up the tub a bit more with a flap disc







    A word to the wise if you need to remove old bed liner get yourself one these! I picked up a cheapo "Oscillating Tool" from PA when it was on sale with fairly low hopes for it but it shaved off what was left of the bedliner like a hot knife. I had used furniture stripper and a scrapper before the sandblasting and it took almost 2 days that way.




    Thinking ahead to the paint I worked out that my Jeep was "PG5 (Hunter Green Metallic)" What else can be decoded? does anyone know of reference sheet for these?

    I got build sheets for my 95 XJ and 03 TJ about 2 months ago. I went to a dealership and provided my ownerships. They acted like they were doing me bit of a favour. I'm not sure if they would have given me anything if I had called it in. They wanted to be sure that I actually owned the vehicles. YMMV.

    Tried over the phone and they were reluctant to do much but confirm the paint color, going to go in and try to get a full build sheet at some point.


    On another thought, why is it always a Sunday evening when you run out of shielding gas? Luckily I still had some flux wire left to finish up the last 2 body mounts





    A once over the body to remove any rust, undercoating or bed liner and it's off to paint





    I was going to go with a base-clear like how it was from the factory but was advised against it because it apparently would require going over the body with filler to remove any and all imperfections. I was recommended to go with a urethane based paint as it's thicker (so it hides imperfections) and is also more durable but I didn't think you could do a metal flake with urethane, does anyone have experience with a metal flake urethane paint? thoughts?

    Go to DeWildt, see Don in parts, tell him you are from JeepKings...he is typically very helpful, but might be a little more helpful if you tell him that. It was much easier when Piggy worked there but then he turned a little...you know...and went to work for John Deere instead.
