These are my latest projects. The white jeep was purchased at a tow yard auction, and was a great build. I have since given it to my son to keep for my little grandson.

The yellow jeep is a '04 TJ, and wanted to finally have a comfortable ride without not much needed work, except for a full fluid change, thermostat, and real main seal.

Yeah, the TJ's are a nice upgrade over the YJ and they have round headlights!. Plus, if you ever want install a long arm system, it's a pretty straight forward process. Just did the rear main on my wife's XJ last weekend. At least with the 4.0's you don't have to pull tranny.

Hey ME87: Looks like a nice shop to work on those jeeps you have there. Show us more.

Here are a few pics of my project CJ7. Pre paint and post paint.

Waiting for new mirrors and fender flares.

Trying to stay close to original except for tires and wheels.

Added tow bar and lights.

Always liked the old style CJs.

Great looking Jeep. Which motor?

I'll get a few more pictures of the garage this weekend when it's light out. The one pictured behind the green/yellow/grey CJ is my Dad's current shop. It's a 2 Car with an attached RV garge 12' Roll up and about 50 deep! that's also got an office attached to the back that he uses as a clean room for doing machine work (lathe/mill and press) His is below

Couple of my toys

A band saw I scored for $100 on Craig's List, Just needs a new coolant reservoir. Everything else functions fine


The welder shown is run on flux core until I can find time to go get a bottle. Until then I'm stuck using the Miller 350P at work

Table saw that I came out on top of by $85 after doing some trading for another larger table saw that I repaired


Put some peg board up a couple weekends ago


and a shelf I put up about 3 weeks ago that spans the front of the garage


Small re-loading center to support that habit


Haven't decided on a paint scheme yet, so until then everything is going up unpainted.

[QUOTE=ME87;6297]Great looking Jeep. Which motor?

It is the good ol straight six, keeps on keeping on...:thumbsup:

New mirrors came in and installed them last night. The C7 mirrors just look weird or is it me?

One sticks out further than the other?

The 258ci is a great motor. You can't kill them. Let's see some pictures of the mirrors.
