    Default TJ Project

    Well I picked this up about 8 months ago after it had been in a collision,.. I think I can get it looking good and road worthy again.

    It was hit in the drivers side wheel in the "C" on the diff is bent as well as the obvious body damage:













    So I traded a Comanche Slider window for a replacement axle, bought 2 2005 Fenders in black as well as the Rubicon factory checker plate rock guards.the goal to push/pull the corner of the tub out well enough to bolt the parts back on and get it on the road.
