Project Silver and Black

Recommended Posts

I finally decided to start building an MJ since they are getting harder and harder to find. I was fortunate enough to find an 89, manual, 4.0 - 2WD with no rust what so ever. I picked it up for $500 since the previous owner could not figure out why it was over heating. :clapping: He basically replaced the radiator and forgot to burp the close cooling system. :nuts: Anyway, I just went ahead and replaced the close system with an open system from a 97 XJ, Problem solved! jamminz.gif


Here is how it looked like when I picked it up.





Here is what it looks like a few weeks later.

I like that idea even if you didn't have dents. For a work truck, those would be great.


I get creative like that from time to time. :clapping:


Here is something else that I came up with once I saw how expensive those LED boxes were.


LED box for my XJ



LED box for my Zuk.
