    Wife says I'll never finish

    As the title says, wife was sick of looking at my 91yj and told me to scrap it. I told her i could have it on the road by May 24! So she said ya right, you never finish anything you start around here, thats when the arguement started. Next Day i moved my jeep to my father inlaws who has givin me his shop till May. Bonus heat and a roof. So the challange is on.
    My avitor shows what it looks like after 2.5yrs sitting in my driveway all covered up.
    Heres what I got 91yj, have put in a 4" lift, rebulit motor, as old one had windows in the block, replaced almost the whole front steering and what i haven't will get done. Just bought a tub from r.d.a.
    what are my plans beside finish it before may????????????????
    Will post pix as i go and of some of the stuff i have already done.
    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    well the build has taken many twists and turns, what started as a mall crawler, has now turned into a little more.... so today with Kevin's help we are off to get a new rear axle (thanx Jeffy for that bug) so once again its off to our local wreakers for parts.... will post pix as soon as i can get the geek squad to help me!
    as for dead lines, i think the wife likes me working on "FrankinjeeP" she knows where i am.......
