Journey to Your Ultimate Jeep
Handcrafting your custom, vintage Jeep is a journey at Jeep Heritage. Whether commisioning one of our sourced vehicles, or you bring in your own donor, our build starts with a custom automotive rendering of your vision.
We disassemble each Jeep down to its bare frame to ensure optimal quality at build-up. At each work bay, parts are inspected and either restored or replaced with new old stock from our inventory or their equivalent.
media blasting for frame, body and metallic components.
cleaning & zinc treatments for hardware and moving parts.
mechanical rebuilding of engine, steering box, transmission, transfer case, axles, driveshafts and all their accessories.
chroming, anodizing and polishing of bumpers, window frames, door handles, windshield frames and hubcaps.
upholstery of all interior parts: seats, carpets, door and body panels, headliner, dash pad, steering, arm rests, consoles.
wiring and electrical restoration for wiring harness and electric door locks, window, windshield wiper motor, dash, heating, A/C.
cleaning of gas tank and fuel delivery systems.
stainless steel reproduction of brake and fuel lines.
recycling for fluids, tires, bushings and remaining old parts.
Frames are sandblasted down to the bare metal, inspected for physical damage and repaired before getting zinc rich primed and powder coated. Worn out body mounts are replaced by polyurethane suspension bushings.
RUST PROTECTION GALVANIZation
Upon request, we hot-dip galvanize each frame to obtain additional rust production. The dip process allows zinc to merge with the metal in and out of the frame and its cavities. Of course, we will powder coat the frame on top of that.
PROUD & ORIGINAL
Classic suspension guarantees elegance and comfort. Our partnership with Bilstein shocks provides the best ride quality for the on-road environment and occasional off-road adventure.
SPORTy & feisty
Custom lifts provide the right looks without compromising drivability. Leaf springs get replaced, as well as the extended stainless steel brake lines, pitman arm, and driveshafts.
DETAILED TO PERFECTION
Leaf springs receive full protective treatment, including complete disassembly, removal of bushings, individual powder coating, and new polyureathane leaf pads & bushings.
Get as close to the original factory setup as possible with stock single, dual, quad-core carburetor or fuel injected on a rebuilt engine, transmission, transfer case, axles and driveshafts.
Combine the best of old and new without altering the engine and drive train. Some engines allow performance upgrades, such as replacement of the carburetor with an advanced multipoint mass air induction electronic fuel injection.
srt-8™ hemi conversion
Jeep® SRT-8® vehicles represent the very best of the best on street, track and off-road. We combine a complete drivetrain from a Jeep® SRT-8® with the iconic vintage aesthetics of any classic Jeep from the 1940s to early 1990s.
We build our own stainless steel exhaust systems with Mandrel bent steel for the perfect fit and best performance. TIG and MIG welded for longevity and beauty. A variety of mufflers allow the right sound for your Jeeps personality.
Listen for Yourself
The restoration of the brake system includes the replacement of pads, rotors, seals, gaskets and wheel bearings, as well the total refurbishment of the calipers.
The classic setup features two discs in the front and two drums in the back with a vaccum assisted braking system.
The modern setup features an upgrade to four slotted disc brakes and a power steering Hydro boost system.
Older Jeeps have issues with a large amount of play compared to a modern vehicle. We overhaul all components in our restoration to rectify control.
In this process, we replace the power steering box and pump, overhaul the steering column and shaft, and replace all moving parts such as knuckles and joints. Finally, we use a steering box with a tighter gear ratio to eliminate slack.
Quality Body & Paint Craftsmanship
old School techniques
We guarantee a zero bondo policy on our Jeep restorations. No bondo or extensive body fillers are used- only old school techniques involving hammers and heat.
DOWN TO THE BARE METAL
Each component gets media blasted down to the bare metal before painting, offering long term rust protection. This is the only way to detect weak sheet metal, previous accidents and prevent eventual damage from the inside out.
STEEL, HEAT, HAMMERS & CRAFTMANSHIP
What you see is what you get. We guarantee full steel bodies, hammered out to perfection, the old school way by real craftmen.
RUST PROTECTION STANDARD
Body panels are metalized with a aluminum and zinc protection to prevent future corrosion.
Each panel is painted individually with the underside and inner wells covered in extra heat resistant hard coating before painting.
In order to guarentee a perfectly stretched body, a thin primer is applied to each panel and then sanded to perfection three times.
two tone paint
We paint over the first layer to ensure a smooth finish and transition between each color.
Top notch materials are applied over the painted bodies.
SOUND Proofing & heat insulation
Floors, panels, ceiling and doors get insulated with high quality sound proofing material.
Bright Anodizing on Hardware & Moving Parts
Original hardware restoration
Original hardware is inspected and treated with electro zinc plating without affecting tolerances and threads.
Stainless steel hardware
If preferred, we use A2 or A4 marine rated stainless steel hardware as a replacement to the original hardware.
moving part restoration
Any moving part that can not get metalized and powder coated because of tolerance issues gets an electrozinc treatment.
Chrome Plating & Anodizing
Bumpers, window frames, grilles, door handles, driprails and chrome accessories get plated and polished. Aluminum bumpers get anodized, polished and coated to perfection.
Respection of original schemes and fabrics. Upgrade original vinyl to leather.
Wiring & Electrics
Our electrical engineer replaces the entire wiring harness with a new one or restores the original harness. Each wire gets individually inspected, cleaned and loomed. The connects get fresh dielectric grease to ensure proper water protection. We can upgrade your Jeep to Light Emiting Diodes (LED) technology.
New Wheels & Tires
Tops & Canvas
Stretched and fitted to perfection with the best Hartz Materials
Radio, Bluetooth & More
We bring the original AM/FM back radio to life. Looks and original sound are not affected. Infinity Kappa speakers come stock with every build.
Keep the original radio unit in place with a modern touch. Handsfree calls, audio streaming, and a discreet subwoofer make this the perfect ride for today’s driver.
We drive each of our builds the first 1000 miles and check torque specs prior to final delivery.

Each new build is fully documented from day one to delivery.
