Progress Pics - '62 CJ5

[Edit] thought I'd post some latest photos SEE third PAGE - oops 4th

hey hey -

Thought I'd show some progress pics of the Heep. Getting it ready for a move to Reno soonly, so I tacked on the rear shackle mounts, finished up fab-mods to a sweet set of Dean's re-centered H1 wheels (thanks, your shite rocks) and stuck the axles under it. That way it could be rolled onto the trailer.

Here's what it is so far:
  • '62 -5 tub on a PBB-inspired 4x2.5x0.120 rect tube, very simple frame
  • '92 FS Cheb 4.3l TBI - roller rockers, HV oil pump, alum. rad, other than that, OE ('cept for 10cfm York)
  • Rebuilt SM465, Novak mainshaft and replacement counter gear (thanks, Eric!) w/Novak D20 adapter
  • D20 twinstick with original D18 gears and Novak intermediate shaft upgrade
  • Rear Waggy D44 with Yukon 4.88's, ARB, post '88 Cheb front disks/calipers, Mitchell Diff. FF conversion on Moser shafts
  • Front Waggy D44 with Warn shafts, ARB, same gearing, every moving piece replaced
  • Rockstomper draglink & tierod with ER-designed high steer conversion using Waggy Saginaw box
  • cage and seats aren't shown
  • 16ga Summit Fuel cell with holley inline pump
  • home-fabbed 3/16" aluminum dash, 11 ga steel tranny tunnel, front floor, firewall portions[XJ tilt column
  • 66CJDean wheels with rolled 1/2" rebar welded in to protect wheel outers
  • TnT Customs SliderZ & CornerZ to follow soonly
all I can think of for now.

Looks nice. I'd like to see the underside of that fuel cell and how you mounted it. I plan on doing something like that with my 20 gal summit cell.
any pics of the under side of it.

You're sure right about moving being the ultimate motivator. . .

Another shot of the fuel cell mount. The mount is a bolt-on piece consisting of 1x1x0.90 square tube and more of that scrap 11ga. I had to make a sloped drop for the low spot on the cell. The tie down straps on the cell tie into the mount. The mount bolts to two legnths of welded-on 1x1 angle, allowing for frame flex. The cell sits on sections of old whitewater rafting material - Hypalon for cushion/wear resistance. Fuel lines poke out in from of the drip and tie into the side of the frame (or rather will ~ thanks Brian!)

I have seen Geesh's rig in person and it is pretty sweet and it will be awesome when he finishes it. I am really impressed with his transmission tunnel cover, it looks really good and clean, cant really see it good in any of his pics.

Nicely done ! I really like the fuel cell positioning instead of just laying it in the tub....
would like to see engine bay pics after you get settled in the new digs.....

Here are some shots of the fenders (I dug the camera out). This is the first effort, and I have to say I'm not 100% happy with the strength of them. Since the tub sits on rubber bushings, the front clip does too. After seeing a thread showing a guy pulling on a fender to right the vehicle, my faith in my design was diminished. So I am thinking reinforcements are in order.

No plans on bending sheetmetal to further the 'OE fenderization'. I'm not even certain what ah'll do with them.
