Hello Everyone,


Just wanted to post here a build I've been working. Reason why I started this was My 06 D-Max is meant for towing and not the dirt. I was tired of getting left behind and force to skip obstacles. Something more capable was required. I hate Smog checks and expensive registration fees so I decided to build an old rig. The bones of the build is a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. I bought this off of CoPart for the sum of 2500 dollars. I didn't realize it at the time of purchase but it had over 10k in upgrades but more on that later. The body that will sit on the JK frame is a 1949 International Harvester Kb2. I pick this truck up for 1000 Dollars.

I recently started dabbling in YouTube, so I will post my videos but be warned I suck at this and any advise for this YouTube thing will be appreciated.

My 1st Jeep Wrangler : )

This video is how I got the Body and Frame together.



In this video I made what I call the FloorSlide



The donor truck I chose and test fitting the new engine

I finally was able to design the floor for the truck. I used a Flow Master Muffler and an bunch of screws. The floor was holding up me from installing the seats. The seats I'm using are from a 2005ish Volkswagen Golf/Passat.

My front locker was stuck on due to a factory sensor. I took it out, cut it and put it back. Spread some sealant around and threw the front cover back on.

Made a video of my nonsense wiring job. Engine to LED headlights & taillights. Every time I wire a vehicle, I try to step up my game. I want the cleanest install possible. I started buying grommets from the junk yard to make things cleaner/easier. Installed a GM key to start the truck. Took awhile to get it all functioning and it is still not 100% done. 100% LED vehicle is new to me.
