This is what it looked like when I bought it.Except for the rims,and tires.There off my XJ I got it with 5 steel wheels with the small jeep hub caps(plastic center cone).The bottom one is from fabricating the front bumper.

wow, that is pretty ugly. :D  I'll start with the obvious question, are you planning to paint it a uniform color?

I was hopping to get some color on it this summer.The bed needs a ton of panels straightened out,and the drivers side front fender.Uniform might not be the word I would use.I was thinking BIG blotchy camo like an M1 hummer,but OD green would work.The back rack was built as a shooting platform,but its not floored yet with plywood.It also holds two mil.spec.intrenching tools(shovels).One high lift jack,and has camo curtains that role down to cover the sides.When I fab the rocksliders I have two M1 grab handles I'm using as step ups into the cab.Not to mention a bunch of old footman loops to put on the bed yet.Now I don't have to drive it I can get back to work on it.

Got a face lift for the drivers side of my truck yesterday. Robbed the drivers side front fender,and front end from my XJ .I'm try'n to cut back on body work because the passenger side of my bed is hammered.The Cherokee emblems need to go yet,and replacing the flare is on today's to do list.Along with updated head light harness,and stealing the duel battery's out of the XJ. I took most of the parts out yesterday when I had the XJ apart,and managed to hammer out the old fender before putting it on the XJ.

Yeah Pete I haven't made my mind up on a color yet,but the red is looking pretty good at the moment.Its pretty easy to get around here.Plus everyone around here is used to seeing my red XJ. So there might be a change in plans. OOP's that means repainting the front bumper,and the rack out back too.I am leaving the Int. grey so I can steal more parts from the XJ though.Anyone have the drivers side kick panel in gray? I may have a way around that too.

Even the best plans go to chit when the weather changes.I really need to empty out some of my garage.I started working on my flares,and out of the blue it just started raining.Not the best weather to be painting in.Or working under the hood.Maybe one of the next 3 days will be better.I really wanted to do a write up on the headlight up grade's,and show off the duel battery's.

I'm still lQQking for a tranny for the truck,and doing some body work on my XJ.Getting ready to steal some parts from the Grand Cherokee for the XJ. Its been kind of nice here,and good weather to do body work. AKA no rain knock on wood.Getting ready to gut the XJ to put a cage in,and saving any,and all Interior parts for the MJ. Buckets,headliner,and any other parts I can use.I have a pile of parts from the XJ ,and some new parts for the truck.I might have a couple of weeks off next month,and planning to start some of the work on the truck.should have some updates soon Pete.In stealing the front fender off of the MJ I also raised the flares,and put it on the XJ. Turns out its giving me a run for my money.It was really wavy,and the truck had been hit in the front.Raising the flares I cut alot of it out.Now the only body work to be done on the truck is the bed,and thats a plus.I wish I could say the same for the XJ. Poor body work on both doors,one rocker,and the roof plus the fender I swaped off the truck. Thank God for air tools,and a MIG welder. LOL
