Newbster Newbington Reporting for Duty

Been poaching info off the boards for a while now, finally hit the point where I decided to help pay my way. Wealth of information here (as well as just a COUPLE of opinions!), but the been-there-done-that-three-times information is worth the trash talking.
Current project is a TJ, re-worked as what I always really wished I could find. Sort of a Brutish-TJ-Scrambler flatbed love-child of a menage-a-quoi between an '02 TJ, Gen 1 Dodge Cummins, a Frito Truck and an M1009 CUCV. Must've been a wild night.
Anyway, Hi to all...

Thanks for the add! I just picked up a Jeep FC150 today that is very rough. It was sitting in a back field with a tree growing between the body and bumper. Today we rescued her and want to try and fix it up. I want to upgrade to a newer frame. What is the best frame to upgrade to and engine to swap? I would like to drop a diesel in it but unsure of room right now. I am hoping to mess around with it tomorrow. Once its complete I would like to haul a small camper and use the jeep for off roading/mild rock climbing.

I am located in southern WI

First time posting. Just picked up a bone stock 94 YJ. Super clean & strait with no rust luckily. Has the 2.5 w/ 5 speed. Plan is to build it up for my 14 y/o daughter and give it to her. I have already ordered a RE 4.5 extreme lift kit, 1" prothane body lift, some 35's on Cepeks and a few other odds & ends. Not sure I'm going to want to give it up once done.

Anyways, if anyone in the Sacramento area is familiar with these, I'd appreciate any advice & help.

Axel here, I grew up looking at, and climbing in CJ5’s at the local AMC dealer where all the family cars were purchased and serviced. I Bought my first Jeep in 1986, and then I sold that CJ-7 in the early nineties. I went without a Jeep for about 25 years until the bug bite me again. Now I have a 2017 JKU, a 1985 CJ-7 and a 2005 Grand Cherokee. Anyway, I’ll be hanging out in the Jeep forums, and enjoying my Jeeps in future, by driving them as much as possible.

Supposed to have 4:11's and dana 44's front and rear.
Nice big old winch, 4 wheel disks also has a buick 231 engine.

Common mistake first off road

Started off roading when leaving Ludlow on a shortcut to Vegas, my Rambler Classic ran through washes and saved me, 1970 with 20 years of life.

I'm an old guy (67) who just bought his first 4X4 and it happens to be a 98 Cherokee XJ. I know almost nothing about it or about 4X4s in general. I hope to learn something from you guys.

New Guy here from AZ

Thanks for letting me join, I live in Bullhead City Az along the Colorado river. I recently picked up a clean 06 LJ and looking to lift it with a good kit, more than likely run 35's. "still deciding" if I should go with short arm or long.. I can imagine I will find some info here...

Thanks
Gary

I'm driving my second 97 TJ. First stayed pretty much stock through 135,000 miles. This one has just over 200k and I'm hoping to start building it up soon.
