JEEP-What once was old is now new again

Post by NceptioN »

Image

Forgot to post pics of the jeep when I bought it.This is all I could seem to find.I bought this for 40 bucks off cl with no battery,but the guy showed me it was in working condition.

Image

Did the rubber tire conversion.It was worth it I think.I still have a little sag in the front,but its fixable and im glad it was done.

Image

Image

Image

The radio didnt work of course.I tried to fix it,but it had been left out in the weather.My daughter said she wanted her name on it.All the stickers where faded so I just improvised.

Then I had to paint that hot pink mess....

Image

Image

Next time the tires or coming off the rim.
Image

Image

Image

Image

And the most important the driver...

I had a lot of help from mpw on facebook and on here.She loved what santa brought her for Christmas.Thanks and im not done yet!

Yea if you know how to use those tools I would imagine so.Just know that you need a cross brace for the top of your suspension on jeeps.Use cotter pins instead of those dumb nuts that com on pw.Pex tubing and the rest is simple.

It was really the only thing I could find to slide over it and slide rite into the HF wheel.I looked at some angle iron to that would have worked,but my welder died awhile back and can't bring myself to buy a cheap one.Some guys where saying the copper tubing for plumbing but I couldn't see it working without a lot of sanding or different shafts so I thought of the next thing

Can't steers enough a bar from side to side on the top side of the top of the suspension and do away with the nuts that come on the pw and if you still have sag adjust you tow by bending on a vise or have someone Fab a bracket for u.
