Well, it's been a while since I've had a Jeep. Bought a 2001 Sahara with only 58k in beautiful condition 3 weeks ago that we were going to leave stock, and 2 weeks ago it got hit. I thought maybe it was a sign we shouldn't have another Jeep. The insurance company offered us $8500 and the Jeep back. I guess it was a sign I need to build up one last Jeep.  :P

So, here we go.

Things it needs that I can see so far:

- New wheels and tires (2 got munched)
- Steering box (have, Thanks Johnny)
- Complete Dana 30
- Upper and lower control arms
- All steering linkage
- New front driver's side fender
- Front bumper

The Plan:

- Repair any body damage.
- Have some repainting done
- Gator Guard tub, nose and rockers
- aftermarket front and rear bumpers
- 3" Zone Offroad lift w/ RC fixed lower control arms
- Steering stabilizer
- 5 - MT 15x8 Classic III polished rims
- 5 - 32x11.50R15 BFGoodrich AT KM2
- Warrior mirror relocation brackets with light tabs
- some sort of steel rocker guards

Pics coming.

This project has taken a long time, but I feel it was completely worth it. It drives better than new and turns a lot of heads. With only 60, 000 original k on it, it will last a long time.

It'll last a lot longer than you'll own it, you mean.
I keep buying older Jeeps. Crazy is as crazy does....
if we were smart with our money we wouldn't own Jeeps.
Here's your cup of STFU... ENJOY!

Ya, I don't have the best track record. I think this one might be a keeper though. :)
