PROJECT:Primitive CJ

Been thinkin about making a build thread for a few weeks now but I pretty much suck when it comes to computers and my jeeps nothin like some of the stuff I see on here.
The jeeps an '82 cj7 (jamboree anniversary edition) I picked up about 3 years ago. I would have started building sooner but it took me a while to discover pirate

Anyway Here goes..

quickly put a 4" lift on it and DD it for a long time like this with 33"s
Did some moderate to mild wheeling every chance I got and 9 times out of 10 it seems like something was breaking.
Also painted it after a couple months of having it ... its pretty faded now but I think I like it more that way
lots of bolt on stuff ... corbeau seats, swaybar disconnects, winch, blah, blah, blah

couple poser pics

Why stock gears in the D300? Are you going to be driving this on the road?

Suspension plans? Are you keeping those 4" SUA springs?

Jb gears in the furure just can't afford it at the moment
Stock yj springs SUA in the rear, I had the 4 inchers on for a while but it sat too high for my liking I've got pics of that also
3 link front with 14 inch travel KING remote res.
I wanted a high pinion front so I went with a 78 ,I had a 94 under it but it didn't fit between the framerails the way the 78 does ... funny story how I came about the 78 axle...

Thought the Stak case was just a replacement case. Hes just getting the replacement with stock gears. Unless when you order the case you can get either side drop and if so he is replacing case like I posted

I think for the price of a RAC its only worth getting if you need to run drivers side drop which is what I have
Stock d300 gears will work in any RAC

Yup same with the Atlas t-case or he could have flipped a stock D300 and run it that way also.

alright ill try to get you guys somewhat cought up on how the build progressed to what it is now

at first I bought a BTF full width kit and was planning on running 44,14bolt combo out of a 79 camper speciel I got for free, with 37 inch tires

then I decided to just run 1 tons with stock internal and since the dana 60 already had 5.13 gears Id only have to regear once and save some money ... if only I knew

This is what kick started the build...
My girlfriend needed new tires for her jeep but couldnt afford them so I swapped my xterrains on her wranglerto save her some cash, she lucked out on that because she also got a full size spare

...about 2 weeks before this I bought some 39.5 IROKS of Dan (gokartergo) here on the board ... and I reeeeaaaaaaly wanted these on my jeep!

Good luck with the build, looks like you have a good start.

You may want to think about spending the money on a RAC. Think about flipping the 300 with a Down east kit and spend the rest of the money on a 4:1 kit. Stock gears suck on the trail.

thanks but I already bought the RAC
I did look into the DEO kit though, I didnt like how you have to buy an additional clocking ring to clock it flat
also got alot of mixed reports on flipping the d300

one of the first real mods I did was add a cage after a scary encounter at a buddys house
its a EOR cage kit (as seen on xtreme) that I changed up a little bit, I like it because it fits under my hardtop
I recently started adding onto it during the teardown when I was waiting on parts, Ive been wanting to redo the shoulder harness' the correct way for awhile now, also tie in the seat mounts and add some other stuff aswell
you can also see the crappy tires I took off my girlfriends jeep
