Canuck MJ Restoration

Recommended Posts

I am going around the site for a year, and i finally take the decision to write the project. :wavey:


When I bought my MJ the tail gate was bent and a lot of rust and dents.



I began with surface rust and go deeper after.


All the mechanic was working, but need a new AX-15(Used) from cherokee.


I bought a 1990 Cherokee Laredo to be a donor.



Get ride of the stupide cluster lights


I found surprise under the carpet

The leak was coming from the windshield and the back windows.



After fixing the more urgent problem, the floor, we go around the truck !!!


More work



More rust issues


We finally put the primer and the paint



Couple days later new back glass & windshield




The latest modification was a transmission & t-case this last spring


Fuel sending unit and all gages are working


I am still working on it presently redoing the inside
