CJ-5 Monster rebuild..

This is my buddies jeep i have been helping him build over the past couple years, But now its time to go big, Its a 1970 cj-5 with 44 front and 60 rear 4.88 gears, 360 T-176 and dana 300. Its time to build it bigger and better!







We have built a Brand new frame from 2x4 3/16 wall box... Stretched the wheelbase to over 108 inches.
The new running gear is a king pin 60 in the front and a 14 bolt in the back with 4.56 gears..
Chevy TBI 350 and built TH350 with a dana 300.
Brand new set of 44 TSLs!!
15x10 Wheels with weld in beadlocks from KORE 4x4
New hand made floor pans for the body with a CJ-7 hood and grill..

looks sweet, you might want lower gears than 4.56 for a 44"!

True dat. Anything that starts with the number "5" should be good!

I plan to put a 4 to 1 in my dana 300 which would give me a 98 crawl ratio.which will be plenty!

looks good, and yes, 4.56 with 4:1 on an automatic tranny is good to go.

Nitro Shocks

Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to mount a set of 2.0 kings racing shocks in the rear ?? The big issue is the upper mount and body clearance..

Here are a few more picutres..

Thanks guys.. The really cool thing is that me and my buddy are both only 19 years old..
Still looking for a good mount idea for the nitro shocks in the rear.. we have debated ab cutting a hole in the fender to put the shock up thru bc it will need to be mounted so high. But the mount needs to go straight to the frame or off of the cage work over the back fenders, but since we havent made the cage yet so we cant really tell if that is going to work or not..

any reason why you didnt build the frame to match the spring spacing? thus avoiding having to outboard the spring and shackle mounts?

We left the front narrow for the fact or clearance for turning with 44's and mathch the grill width for a better look, if we had made it wider, when it steers the tires would rub the sides of the frame.

Hey easy on the wheels they were the right price for a set of 15x12 barts..
I will have lots more pictures up soon the tub is now sitting on the frame and the wheels are painted black. I think the paint scheme is going to end up being silver and black..

truelly impressed. Shit! when I was 19, I was happy to BOLT on a suspension lift on my first Jeep. that was 12 years ago. And here you are at 19 Fabbin your own frame and stuff!!

Truelly impressed. This new Generation of off roaders will make the scene explode and the Box will get destroyed by young talent as we see here.

Keep it up.
