I have been on a tear restoring on average, one car a year up till 2017, when I brought home what I though was going to be another fun flip. I love doing the gritty fab work and this jeep did not disappoint. I bought a sewing machine and made the carpet and seat covers. i figure anything worth doing is worth trying. I started with the tear down, ouch! I found so much rust even the leaf springs were falling apart. cut sand weld was the recipe for this build, it took the first year to get the thing to stop whistling from all the rust holes. after all that it was on to upgrading and customizing as per the video I have strange taste thus the Buick v6 and huge lift. after all said and done I will never sell this truck my dad helped me with a bunch of the build and those are memories I will always have, not to mention its to much of a head turner.
