My JK- Rebuild.

With what started with a junker. I ended up with a Jem. Did all the work myself from haulling it home to paint. It's been fun but I'm not doing it again.
Not sure why the pics didn't show up. Here... let try again.

Seeing with what you started with it looks great, but I gotta ask...what made you decide to use stock bumpers and fenders for the rebuild instead of using the opportunity to upgrade to stronger steel or aluminum replacements?

I was wondering the same thing. I kind of came to the conclusion that he may have just grabbed the parts off of forums like this for free to save on the build.

I've got just over $10K invested. I'd like to do bumper later on. I bought the stock one for $25 buck. That way I could use the extra cash for other things to get it running. I will in time tho.

Thanks! It was a total loss from some acciedent. Not sure what happened but the wife thought I'd lost it when she saw it. Some people just can't see the forest thru the trees if you know what I mean.

Tell me that you painted under the door hinges before you applied them!

It looks great, how much did you pick up the totaled Jeep for?

Like Mariano Rivera, he comes in and closes strong. That is some seriously impressive work. Give up some more details about the process!
