Hey D! Glad to see it!

You do nice work. Tell me you are going to gitter'dun for the Moab Rally in May. Please.... I can't wait to see this thing up close. If you don't go, I will round up Casey and cruise over to your house.

Absolutely sweet build.

So, how is the custom hood going to work out? What do you have in mind?

Diggin' it. Stick with the V6 and the 'pane. 'Pane works awesome on Eric's buggy. I need to get some vid of it, he did some gnarly stuff at Super this weekend. I'm thinking about doing my CJ-6 with the 225 V6, SM465, NP241, 'tons and 38" mils (of course). I hate breaking parts and hp isn't usually necessary in the rocks/dirt where we play.

My idea exactly, I like a challenge and I have never been one to confront it with my right foot.

Sometimes, I do, but the stoopid amount of power the dodge makes usually just gives me broken parts unless I'm on sand/dirt.

Thanks every one.

Well as luck goes, as soon as I started this thread work picked up to 5-6 days a week, and when I do have time I have work around the house and a polaris ranger to get ready.

I should be working on it soon, in the meantime I have a pile of parts for it that I picked up off of craigslist.

DRAT, did you end up moving the motor back a little in the frame rails so the tires would clear the firewall? the reason i am asking is because i am building one for a customer. same setup as yours except he wants a ramjet 350 for a power plant.

Very Nice! I like the fact that you wheel and deal to get the parts you need on the cheap.

Awesome!

I am equally as jealous to the fact that you can keep stuff outside and it not rust instantly. I have a sandblasted frame INSIDE my heated shop developing surface rust three days after it was soda blasted

Awesome build! Great to see a lot of fab going into something that isn't all about bling. The fab work looks great.
