    94 YJ gets new life...again

    Hey I've been slowly putting some work into my old YJ. It was stock when I bought it a few years back. I lifted it and threw 33's on it and went through all the driveline mods (SYE), and learned alot. After I enjoyed it for a few years I wanted to do something alittle more cosmetic because it really started showing its age. So I put on some Rubi flares and 35" BFG mt's. Flush mount tail lights and half doors. A body job which included some patches, and alittle paint. Heres a before and after. Yeah I know I need a new soft top

    Thanks for all the help from Fade_2_Black.

    That's sex right there .

    Not that the original looked all that bad, but I can certainly respect a gent who takes a little pride in his ride. One suggestion; Add side markers to the rear of the tub. You can get little 2" flushmounts (Princess Auto) that'll pop in very easily and ward off the cop looking for reasons to ticket you.

    Sharp looking bumper!

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    I'm a proud member of SOXJA ask me why!
