bmyohn Posted November 19, 2010 Share Posted November 19, 2010 I figured I would start up a build thread on here since I'm getting ready to tear into my MJ that I just picked up. As it sits it is a 1988 MJ short-bed with the 2.5L 4cyl motor, 4 speed, 2wd. I picked it up for $425 with two full size spare tires on rims. My plans for the project are as follows: Fix rust on floor boardsSwap 97+ front clipFendersDoorsInteriorSwap in 4.0L with full 97+ wiring harnessConvert to 4wdSwap the axles out of my XJ (D30 HP (trussed, locked, 4.88s)/8.8" (locked, discs, 4.88s)Body work/paint jobBedline interior and recarpetCut out rockers for 2x6 steelEtc. Who know's how long this will take to fully accomplish but it's a list of goals I'd like to see happen to this thing. But here's some pictures of how it was when I bought it It sits behind my apartment for right now, so I have slowly begun removing body pieces that will be replaced by 97+pieces. So today I got the front header assembly removed, bumper, front valance, both fenders and bracketry that hold the fenders on, I also pulled the front radiator and fan assembly as well. Tomorrow if everything goes as planned the motor will be pulled, so over Thanksgiving break I can start to completely clear out the engine bar, scrub it down real well and repaint it. Here's what I have done so far today. (If anyone needs fenders, grille assembly, radiator, etc PM me and we can work something out) -Brendan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
