    Default The loooong build

    I picked this up 3 yrs. ago from a barn north of Chico, CA

    It took me 1/2 hour to get it running after the guy delivered it on a trailer.
    Since then it's been in my back driveway more than it's been road, or OFF road worthy.

    Will not be a DD. But I like having a truck, so why not a Jeep!!

    BEFORE



    NOW

    1. 1990 XJ Laredo AW4-4.0L-NP231 D35/D30-OPEN cooling-3.5 full pack-etc.-etc.
    #2. 1988 MJ Pioneer AW4-4.0L-NP231J-D30/D44 LSD - OPEN cooling - 3" lift - 31's

    That is a nice transformation of the MJ there... I'd love to find an MJ to build up one day if I can't find an FSJ to build first...
