    Swindled obsession tear down and re-build

    So after returning home from jk101 i noticed that my frame was in really bad shape as was my tub. As a result i am currently in a complete tear down and re-build of my 98 tj.

    So my plans are:

    Frame and tub replacement
    5.2ltr v8 motor swap
    Minor body lift
    Long arm lift kit upgrade
    Lockrite locker fer the d30
    Locker or repair trackloc fer the d44
    Adding some roll cage bars
    On board air system

    Possible upgrades if i get the time and money:
    Sleve or truss a hpd30 fer install
    Truss d44
    Tube fenders and rock rails
    Front and rear bumpers

    Lots more is planned but not during this initial build... they will come at a later date..

    What i have done so far:
    The teardown is complete. Got new to me frame in and motor mounts cut off awaiting fer the arrival of my new mounts to be installed.
    Found a d30 lockrite locker fer cheap...

    I already had the 5.2ltr and the wiring harness, i picked up a computer from a manual 2nd gen dodge ram as i am keeping my nv3550 as its nearly new and my np231, however I am going with a hack n tap np231 that i have had fer a while now....

    Will post a few pics later...
