New guy from NC

Hello all, my name is John and I live near charlotte NC. I found this site when i was doing searching about putting a motor in my 02 overland. I recently purchased the overland as a project. It needs a motor, and a new front passenger door and passenger fender, along with some small body work on the rear quarter. I've loved the overlands for a long time, and got a great deal on this one, so I jumped on this one when i found it. for the price, I couldnt turn it down. I come from a jeep family. My dad has owned 3 XJ's and a WJ, my grandpa owned 2 XJ's and a WJ, and my uncle has owned a couple CJ's and a YJ over the years. I've owned 3 XJ's and this is my first WJ. I just ordered my motor yesterday, and can't wait to get it in and running. If all goes well, I'll probably be selling my XJ once i get the WJ running.

Anyway, here are a couple pics of the overland..

And here are a couple pics of my current XJ. I love this jeep. It's a 98 and just turned 100k about two months ago.

I just painted the wheels a couple weeks ago. I got tired of the shiny aluminum...

I hope to learn a lot while on this site. Ive got a lot to learn with the WJ's. I'm mechanically inclined, but dont have a ton of hands on time with a WJ yet, so it'll be a learning experience with the 4.7ho for sure.
