Well, its been 2 1/2 years w/o much progress. Been wheelin the other yj since i bought it, so this one got back-burnered.
Got the old 3" body lift and rusty bolts out, replaced everything with a 1" taller bushing to facilitate the flat belly skid i have planned. In the process of rust removal on the frame and body, body work/patching and repainting the frame and under body.
Rear frame rails are rusty and too thin, so that is next on the list. Hope to start on reassembly mid april.
