2 years ago if someone told me to cut my jeep in half i would have told em they are crazy lol.. the reading ive done the housing of the 300 is pretty stout.
Once i get the LM gears installed ill have about 3500 in it including the blackbox if i knew where this was going i prob would have bought a atlas 3 speed. Im not sure what my wheeling style is because ive never had a rig like this. (Cut in half)..

If anyone's cracked a d300 case how did you do it?..

Need some advice on getting the frame straight with the body..i am thinking i can hang 2 plumbobs the with of the frame (32 inches inside of the frame) from the back of the roof where i cut it off and center the 32 inches on the with of the roof then line up the frame ?? Input would be greatly appreciate. I already have the frame square and have braces tacked into keep it square.. thanks

1 plumbob from the center of the roof then measure stuff..

then to check it, plumbob off each side where the B pillar was... should be the same on both sides...


just get it as close as you can, not buildin space ships......remember that

and get that motor in... im out of porn

that is all
