Good job. I am in the middle of putting a 5.3 in a CJ7, cut behind the doors and added 17" to frame and body. I would like to bend some corner guards too. How thick are yours and what did you use to bend it?

Side note. I started this 4 years ago when my son was 3 months old. I told my wife it would take 3-6 months...... yeah, 4 years later it is almost drivable. Frame off is a ton more work, and yours, building a new frame adds another dimension of work. Again, good job.

Thanks! Yea I am coming up on 2 years into this one.

When I bought the jeep the guy threw in a bunch of parts he had been building up with his plans for a build that never happened. One of them was those corner guards. So i used those and then added metal to them to turn them into the rear tube fenders.

Here’s a thread on some diy corner guards.

https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/jeep...ner-armor.html

But question for you why stretch the tub 17”? Why not lj length so you can get armor and run that top if you ever wanted too? Not knocking just curious.

Op this things looking good. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks. I don’t want to talk about mine here but I’ll give a little info. I work a job in a remote location that has 0 internet and that is why I am a voyeur here. I honestly only get online weekly.

17” because I was going to do LJ, and weld in the winshield channel, or CJ8. But then I decided hell, this is all by scratch, Why not Learn to make a top and learn to sew on my own. 17 seems random enough that it is what will be right.

Built a cup holder.

Also got front calipers / pads installed and installed my new steering shaft and joints. Also have been prepping and painting all the engine parts, pulleys etc. while I wait on getting the heads back from the shop with new exhaust seats.

Great looking build and attention to detail! I really like the tire carrier and the cage.

well, I ended up coming into ownership of a racing go kart and have decided to pick up kart racing to add to my list of hobbies which has significantly slowed progress the last several months.

Anyway, I have made a bit of progress. I got the heads back from the shop a while back completely rebuilt with all new guides, hardened exhaust seats, etc. cost a pretty penny (more than most would argue is worth putting into this engine) but i think its pretty cool to have the original AMC engine that came with the car.

I have since installed the heads and intake/exhaust manifolds. Also just received all the pieces for the exhaust system which I plan on getting a start on this weekend.

I have been planning out a CJ5 to CJ6 conversion in my head, and as I was researching, found your thread. Seriously good work. Thanks for all the pictures that helped me clarify my ideas of where to cut and what to fab. Plus some bonus ideas you've come up with. Beautiful rig. Hope to see you finish it.

I am back. Sorry about that, I got side tracked... Picked up a racing go kart off of a friend of mine and joined the local track. Decided it was a good point in my life to launch my racing career so that has been my primary focus the last 6 months or so.. haha

I am kicking it back into gear though... just finished up the full custom exhaust, next up is to finish the roof and get that wrapped up before moving on to the rest of the engine bay. Front shock hoops are the next big thing.

Pics to come.
