    Default I upgraded

    I couldnt stand the 2.5L YJ any longer. It rode like crap, it was slow, it was utilitarian in a bad way. So I bought this.
    It came with the stickers and they will be scraped soon.

    It was only 04-05 that they had the willys edition. They had similar decals. The decals are from Ebay. I know the previous owner and he put them on.

    Had an issue with the frame on Friday so we started swapping the frame. A lot of work. We finished with under 24 hours of labor.

    Started wire wheeling the new to me frame.


    Has this happen Friday. The driver side was nearly as bad.


    Front clip off.


    Tub off.





    This is where we ended up last night and started this morning. Its hard to tell but the front axle was unbolted and under the frame. That was it.


    We rolled the front axle out and removed the center pan. It was scary to literally pull the bolts through the frame rail.


    We cut the frame up and removed the rear cross member and track bar mount.




    Inside of one of the frame rails. Im not sure it was ever sprayed out after being in the mud.


    After a short visit to Joe and the plasma cutter. We transferred the rear cross member and track bar bracket over.


    We started painting and hoped it would dry by the time we got back from the meeting.


    We got back from the meeting and the paint was good enough so we put the suspension under it.


    Then dropped in the motor and a few other things.


    Thats most of the pics I got. Its driveable and home now. Only a few loose ends to tie up but nothing major.
