    2004 TJ Build

    Before I start this post :

    HUGE THANKS TO BRITISH BULLDOG AND MUDBUNNY
    Best friends a guy could ask for.


    2004 Jeep 2.4L auto
    Found this on kijiji as a parts car. Was from the US and broke down on Canadian side. Owner didnt think it could be transferred because it was already on this side of the border. Owner thought motor was done and had a broken motor mount. Came with half doors and glass uppers

    Here is what it looked like when i bought it. (thats a leaf infront of dooors)

    Brought it to BBD and MB's shop. BBD pulled serpintine belt off, started and ran (seized alt. pulley) thats why wouldn't run.
    Next, (big problem) wasnt motor mount, it was where engine connects to mount (ripped off). We still dont know how that happened. Well BBD and his amazing fab work made a new mount(plate) that is 10x better than stock. Replaced all pulleys, tune up, wires, alt, Brakes (front and back) u joints,exhaust....Want it like new

    Next found a Fab tech 4" lift on Kijiji, brand new never installed (BNIB).

    Looking real good. Like the tire choice too!

    How many bottles of Mothers wax did you use? Looks like someone did some ultra buffing.

    Wonder how hard it would be to drop a PT cruiser turbo on that 2.4?

    Very nice. How many miles on it? What are your plans for it? No, I'm not looking to buy it lol, just curious if you will make it a DD or what?
