Default Jeep toy build

The we brought it home

The next day


We are on a time crunch because this ride is going back to Tennessee next week but here are the plans:
- bumpers front and rear with 2" receiver. The winch will be stowed in the bed of the jeep, it will be mounted on a plate with a 2" receiver for optional use on the front or rear.
- simple roll bar behind back seat. We will branch off the roll bar with a "fastback" look. Then an X-brace with spare tire holder with more of a baja look.
Before pics





This not my jeep and I have been given a budget and a time limit so constructive criticism is welcome but keep in mind there are things that I would do different with more time and money. We're gonna do our best with what we've been given!

Another great project. Thanks for posting it up. How are y'all dealing with the unibody flex after cutting out the rear roof?

We're actually not doing a full cage on this one. The roll bar will be even with the C post and go just under the roof. When you cut the back off these jeeps there is a roof support on the disgaurded section that we cut off and move forward. This jeep will never see anything other than rinky dink trails so the owner is not to worried about rolling it over.

Now I'm being told my bender won't be in until next week so we're not even sure this project will make completion before he has to go back home

Thanks for the response. Project looks good. I ask the question because my talent tank runs dry pretty often while driving on even the rinky dinkiest of dirt roads. Dreams of baja I suppose.

You can pick these jeeps up for 1500-2000. Keep in mind their gonna be high milage but the inline 4.0 is a beast of a motor that will last forever. You buy the toy of your choice and we can do all the mods!
