One thought on where you sit at this point: Having been exposed to fire and then setting for years (decades?), I highly recommend you dip and galvanize your frame. The tub is going to take blasting if there is any metal underneath that rust, but blasting won't get inside the frame rails. Dip and galvanize will ensure your hard work will remain on a solid foundation.

Thanks for the input I appreciate it. For the moment this project is on pause till I have a shop granted I may have the tub blasted and prime sometime before then

Well last week a guy asked how much I wanted for Virgil so I popped off a number and he shockingly said "sold" so yesterday we loaded it up and he went to a new home in Edmond however I still have the engine which is great I may just start planning a 4.7 stroker build for the XJ.

Scott knows how that works.

Time to focus and consolidate your efforts.
Look at that, a SILVER Jeep!

That is my plan I have gone from three jeeps to one since October.
