YJ Build Southeast MI

Ladies and Gents,

In a nut shell I am basically trying for the most part to build as similar as possible this. I will however have some changes but for the most part this is the idea I am going with.


Here is a link to their website where you can find all the specs

http://www.genright.com/custom.aspx?id=1


So far:
LS 6.0 ( also have running 5.3 and blown piston no scoring on the walls 5.7 for sale)
4L60E
Dana 300 transfer case
High Pinion Dana 60's, Custom length with Moser axles and Yukon 513 gears.(building in the works)
King 2.0's with reservoirs.
Genright Comp Suspension kit
4 link rear 3 link front
Genright Stinger front bumper with winch carrier
Genright Stinger rear bumper
Genright Boulder Tire Carrier
Genright Crawler Gas Tank
Genright rocker guards stretch
Gen-Right full roll cage with all 6 points tied into the frame
Genright YJ 6in Tube Fenders
Genright Full COMP cut corner guard set with 4" shifted wheel well
AGR power steering with rock ram and cooler
Bestop soft top


Need to locate:

Harnesses
Seats front and rear
Truss front
Belly plate (Genright if cannot find)
radiator
Million other things that always come up

Need to decide on:

Head and Tail lights / Additional lighting
Line-x or What other liner to use on the interioir
Whats colors to paint the exterior and other parts
Audio (Possibly Genright Cage Audio System)
Where to run exhaust
which wheels and tires
which winch
What to do with the Dash

I am sure I am forgetting some things but for the most part this is the just of things.

All parts which are being replaces or no longer needed are all for sale.

-Matthew



Here is some of the progress thus far.




Cage in.


6.0 ready to be mocked up.

Dana 60's


King 2.0's with Reservoirs

A few new pictures and one old one. Getting things measured and cutting some steel then off to paint and powder-coat everything. Anyone wanna show some support on the vendor side and donate something feel free as I have a long list of events this will be heading to once done.

Things are finally coming together it seems in a much faster fasion.

If anyone knows of someone trying to get rid of a Magnuson MP112 or TVS 1900 or KB GM LS motor Supercharger please let me know I am on the hunt. IF not I am gonna have to do heads/cam/ and intake to get some power out of this.

I should have the frame and other parts back from the powder coating and the body back from paint this weekend. I also should have the dash done this week. Hope to have the gauges I ordered from a member here come in soon as well. I will post pictures as they arrive.

Willing to sell everything all the buyer will need to do is buy a donor body and swap everything over and paint to match.
