how much did you manufacture and how much did you buy in?
e.g.t he trailing arms for the rear suspension? did you make them or buy them in? do you have pics of the fabrication of them?

You sure you don't want to melt it down and re-stamp the body panels?

I can see why you're rebuilding it, looks pretty rough in the first picture.

Most people just wash and wipe the interior down, your taking detailing to extreme.
Looking forward to after pic.

If I knew you were that bored, I would have let you rebuild my Willys truck. Subscribed!

A rebuild that extreme surely has a reason. What was that apparently highly capable Jeep in the first pic not able to do that this new one will?

Almost everything is built from scratch. The builder designed everything. The owner/fabricator is 28 yrs old. Exile Fabrications.

I am building it to run some of the hardest rock crawling trails in the U.S. Johnson Valley Ca. It will also be able to run the desert fast.

Here is another build from Mike at Excile Fabrications. Ours will be very similar to this one.

Awesome shop and mad fab skills. Props on running the KOH. When all's said and done though, I'd rather have the Jeep in the first picture. It looks bad assed and would still suit my needs.

This.
Way past impressive, skills most excellent...but why not just start from scratch?

I agree. The yellow Rubicon is worth several hundred dollars at least. Sell it and buy junk if all you need is the tub. I fail to see the reasoning.
