Post by Husky3 » February 9th, 2020, 9:34 am

I did not do a build thread but will put it up now. Started with a 1995 Sahara that was in okay shape.

I got door pouches from Vic, a light bar from another member on the forum, got the antenna and the proper mounting hardware from Radio Shack before they went out of business, Delta 100 fog lights, Ramsey winch plate and center console off of ebay. Than the Jeep sat for a couple of years. I kept seeing jeeps done by Jack Fauth on the site and gave him a call.

Jack went straight to work and sent me progress pics and let me know things he found that needed fixing.

Notice the tire, it's the same Firestone from the before build pics.

The finished Jeep is fantastic! Jack did another great build and I love it. You need to get with Jack if you want the Goodrich tire lettering done it looks great.

Turned out very good, especially the tan to grey interior transformation! Glad it didn't sit any longer and you finally had it done. I agree that the tire lettering looks legit!

What did you have to do to move the solenoid box instead of mounting on the motor?
