BTT... anyone have anything new to share? Still have 3 to my name but have done nothing due to the high price of gas.

How is everyone putting up with their beast

I had to redo the cooling system on my '78; the 455 would overheat on the stock 3-row if given a chance. I managed to squeeze a couple stacked-plate coolers for the tranny and one for the power-steering in front of the biggest two-row aluminum radiator I could fit.

Ordered 38" TSLs this morning, takin off the doors and tailgate. Getting ready for our Rubicon trip in August. Also, putting a Chevy 60 in my father-in-laws 75 J20.


Here is a pic of the J20 from Moab.

i dragged this home a year ago for $600 with the top off, the "cage" in, fenders cut, and smokin 3" bodylift. everything wrong makes it so right. just a joker rig.

360/727/208/44/20

got it running, added ZJ leather and threw some Michelins on. 9R16, they measure out to 36" x 9.5". welded the fenders closed after the trimjob. electric fuel pump. tune up and front rotors/pads.

Took it to a weekend Jam, campground cruiser at least. it worked good enough to run a trail one day.

i got last place on rti. 602













(i can't see the pics from work, i think i copied the right ones, i'll fix it up tommorrow if not)

right now I'm draining gallons of what looks like chicken soup fat out of the gastank, i can't believe it ran at all. FSJ had been sitting for 6 years. is there something in the plastic gas tank that rots? or prone to collecting water?

thx!

Thumbs up Not just cutting the fenders

Day 4 of body works first primer is on, - on fender extensions!



Cutting is not complete yet, Nestor started on next project rear corners. No blood, No tears, but a lot of sweat



This is in Jeep hard core section and I am proud to inform that my Cherokee is going to have an external POOP pipe roll cage! - I love to say that to all DOM tube .......

My wife's truck.
Crappy lighting.
Not very hardcore.
Urban Poser Pics.

But hey, at least it works for family trail-riding.

Nice work I dig the flares I wish we had went a head and built our own rather than buying a set of beat up M715 front fenders for Crom

3 weeks for fender flares

It took me and Nestor 3 weeks to do the fender flares and paint the lower half of the Cherokee.

After 1.5 year building I finally got to test run my Cherokee.


Same from the other side



Wife says; I like it!

the tube runs down the frame for a little less than 3 feet. also follows the contour of the frame



had to fake a transfer case to get a good look at the front output location



mocked in front driveshaft





As always, the brain fuel for the project

I cut a lot out for a few reasons. First there was a lot of rust, the see through kind, second I moved the rear axle back about 7" and third I will be running bigger tires in the future.

I could have maybe been a little more tactful in cutting but I only paid $300 for the beast anyway.

Yea, you could probably squeeze 42's in there as it sits
