    on its back now, I'll spot weld the new floors underneath and seam seal them before the undercoating.
    I've decided to leave the mid rear members intact and just reinforce them since they were in very good shape..will just have to replace the front ones

    tub turning into a checkered cab

    so I basically started with the thought of just patching up the ugly and reinstalling the Renegade fender flares but it's gone downhill from there......should've listened to Lugnutz when he said that these things take time.....

    anywho,
    here's a pic of the front crosmember replaced and primed and, and, and

    next up the template goes on for the body sides, decided to make a mild cut just to the rear seam as I'm only running 35's max and should suffice.....until of course I decide to stretch the back..
    I gave the front portion of the fender the flatie look, I think I like it.

    also went with the relocated gas cap, can't stand bending over like a hoe to fill up, although Tina would probably look better doing that......anyway being the frugal guy that I was forced to be, decided to reuse the YJ filler box instead of the round TJ ones.......it's a YJ people it's supposed to be SQUARE.

    I think I just pitched a tent, must be the checkered plate overload, kinda like the look too.

    next up: cutting the old shite off and welding the new shite on.
    I'm thinking of butt welding it as I prefer it, but there are a lot of old sections that are clean and can be retained so I may lap those. Not sure how a butt welded checkered to clean metal would look anyway
    Ideas?

    Also have to start figuring out the fender extentions since I'm not using the Renegade kit anymore, have many options there maybe checkered again, maybe plain don't know yet.....

    WTF happened to this thread?

    hey yall,this buildup has suddenly taken the back burner as we managed to get a POS ZJ, fix it up and spent the winter in the nice and cozy 4door. Admitedly, I had these things grossly underestimated as it's proven to be a very tough little truck. We only had to do front and back brakes, ball joints, the odd this and that and she was good to go. Have owned it for about 45000K now and just turned 290000K !!! loving this!!!Anywho that with a bit of work thrown in the middle along with my "other" bad habbit, resulted to this delay.On to the YJ now, the tub has been getting some work done whenever possible and is looking much better!

    pics below show the tub bottom getting foamed, primed and truck bed coated. After rerouting and sorting through the wiring the tub went on without a glitch, first time I ever done it with an engine hoist , that was fun!?
    The tub looks decent on the jeep, can't wait to see how the flares and front will turn out

    What dya people think?

    Hey gang,
    It's been almost 5 years since I started this build and I've finally come to the realization that the projects keep pilling up, space is getting crowded and money gettin thinner.
    I've decided to sell this and at this point not sure if it will go as a package or part it out.
    Keep an eye out in the flea market section.
    Thanks to all for their help and happy holidays!!!
    Cheers
