Can I just say we kicked @$$ on striping this thing down today???? jamminz.gif

And You have to hate thoes things that previous owners do.....

I realy need to get slick ricks number so i can give him a good ole :thwak:

It was kind of crazy how bad the fuse box had become after all of the brake fluid had leaked all over it.

We should be making some prity good progress on it but were limited to the weekends working on this one....




So did you get any thing cool at the junk yard after leaving my house?

Just a little insite the Robert for got to mention is that its geting a full ho conversion and the 99 front end and doors. I have yet to see the cherokee thats geting parted for this one but were going wheeling tomorow so we shal see,

O Robert, Tell slickest rick torefrain from doing any " custom wiring on the XJ before we strip it down :shake:

It has been a long project. When i first met robert he asked if i could help him put a motor in his comanche, I refered him to this site and said sure. when he drug the truck and the motor to my house, First the truck looked like it had just came from the junk yars and a second after pulling the valve cover on the WJ 4.0 he brought it had 3" of sluge on every thing. I called him and told him either scrap the idea or buy a good running donor... With the limited mechanical skills at the time that he met me, I have to say i am amazed that he made the right decision, and dident sell me the truck, and bought a bad @$$ donor. Robert could almost do the swap him self now ant the truck speaks for its self. It is in no way finished but it is getting there little by little... and best of all he is driving it agian...
