CJ-5 1 ton (20th May 08 at 5:30am UTC)
I started off with a 1958 CJ-5 with 1/2 ton chevy axles, 5.13 gears, welded rear and open front, worn out 39 boggers, with a Chevy 350 -> SM420 -> Dana 20 and 96" wheelbase.

Thanks to Sillyfab I now have a Dana 60 up front with ARB, 14 bolt in the rear with Detroit, 4.56 gears, 42" Iroks on beadlocks, Dana 300 t-case, now at 108 wheelbase.

Phil did an awsome job with this Smiley!!! Next up is linking the front,a rear stinger, maybe some nice flat fenders, hydro-assist steering and anything else crazy Phil can think of.

One thing though, dont count on that steering box brace too much, make sure the mount is beefed up.

yea... the front box mount is sketchy at best. when I tear the front end down and redo the frame I'll make that uber beef... and it'll have some psc love on it as well.

he's gonna take it easy this weekend and have fun. If anything fails up there we'll just burn it back together 1/2 ass'd cause it's all going away soon {Smile} works great now though!

Out with the old, in with the new!

TBI engine is in with newer clutch and serpentine setup.

Just plumbed the fuel lines using Earl's fittings and damn those things are expensive! I also get a new fuel cell with sump and sending unit. Finally I will have a gas gauge!!

I just need to clean up the wires, cut a hole in the firewall, mount computer, mount the fuel cell and cut a hole the floor for the sump, wire and install fuel pump and filter, fuel gauge, then turn the key and see if it starts!

Wish me luck!

After that over to Phil for the engine cage flanges and possibly exhaust.

Hopefully I will be ready to wheel by next weekend.
