Well it's due time I post a build thread on this forum.
But before that, I'll introduce myself and give a little background info.
My name is Fernando, 20 years old, and about to go into my second year for the Automotive Service Technology course at SAIT.
I got into Jeeps when my cousin took me off-roading in his lifted TJ around 6 years ago. After that I decided I wanted a TJ for my first vehicle.
Saved up and bought myself a 2003 Jeep TJ Sport.
Cute little jeep.
After about a year I joined Jeepforum, shortly afterwards a member told me about CJA. After reading several hours of countless info and pointers, I did all of this to the jeep.
2.5" Rough Country lift
1.25" JKS bl
1" M.O.R.E mml
15x8 Procomp 97 series
33x12.50" BFG Km's
Jks Quick discos
Raptor lined the interior
other little small mods
Drove the jeep like that up until March 16th 2011.
TJ got written off and I bought her back. I was going to part it out but changed my mind and took on this project.
What a great looking frame
Found a frame from a 2004 TJ at http://www.garysautowrecking.com/
They specialize in Jeeps. Great customer service.
Thanks to JKRubi and Av.Nine for helping and showing up.
Started working on the frame
Picked up a D44
More work on the frame, also got a Skid plate from UCF.
This sunday I am hoping to paint the frame with Por-15. I have the Marine clean and Metal-Ready. I also roughed up the frame with a 60 grit wheel just to make a better bonding surface.
My plan is to get the jeep back on one frame by the end of august. Then buy all the important parts.
After I pass inspection(optimism) the real fun begins...
