Lot #29 - Restored/modified from the ground up. The frame, transmission, transfer case, and the front and rear axles were stripped down, cleaned, powder coated and professionally rebuilt. The axles have 4.56 gears with rear limited-slip and have all new bushings, bearings and brake components (to include new stainless brake lines). The entire Jeep was reassembled using all stainless bolts with the exception of torque specific areas (head bolts, suspension, etc.). The original motor was pulled and professionally rebuilt to include a .010 over bore with all new components (pistons, connecting rods, etc.) New U.U.I single wire distributor, Weber carburetor, Borla stainless headers and custom powder coating on engine parts (oil pan, intake, pulleys, brackets, power steering, power brakes, etc.). It has a new alternator, radiator, starter and master cylinder. The engine was built for reliability with a slight performance increase as an added benefit. Pro Comp supplied a 4" suspension lift with all new springs, shocks and pitman arm while Daystar supplied a new 1" lift prothane body mounts. 35" Super Swampers are mounted on 15X10 Pro Comp aluminum rims. The exterior paint is a PPG Purple Pearl Prism and there are 11 coats including the clear and primer. The interior is a Gator Guard material to allow easy cleanup. The front and rear tube bumpers are Smittybuilt. There is no bondo or fiberglass on this Jeep. It is the original body and I have included the before pictures to show it was and is rust-free. The interior has all new gauges, an Alpine AM/FM/CD with alpine speakers, alpine amplifier. It has new Bestop Aquasport front and rear seats, a tilt Grant steering wheel, and the half doors are from a later model Wrangler. The process took about 3 years to finish and the Jeep has 800 miles on it since completion. ** TITLED AS A 1983 AMERICAN MOTORS **
