Day 1 of the build was all about tear down. 2 people and about 6 hours and there wasn't much left of our purchase. First, we removed the roll cage and set it aside. Next the front fenders, grill, radiator, and hood came off. The battery, computer, wiring harness, power steering lines, a/c lines, fuel lines and brake lines were also removed. After all that, we separated the body from the frame.
Then, after removing the drive lines, we pulled the motor, trans and transfer case all together.
Next we removed the link bolts and shocks which released the entire axle assemblies from the frame.
Finally, the only thing left was the fuel tank and 7 bolts later is was laying on the floor. The next day we loaded up the unwanted parts and hauled them back to Sgt Jeep in Rosamond.
