Looks great. What are your plans for rear seat clearances? I did a 50” PRP bench seat and had to get creative with the axle clearance around the seat. What track width are you shooting for? I did a similar build a few years ago, link is above.

Looks good. How much did you stretch yours? It looks like Im more body stretch, and pushing my front axle not as far forward as yours. Im a 24 stretch and looking at a 118WB. From my measurements I think I can fit a 53 PRP bench. My axles are 70.5 WMS, and looking at an 84 track width.

Got the engine harness and computer back today from S&S Performance from being converted to stand alone. EGR, second set of O2, etc deleted. Computer is programmed for gearing, trans, etc... everything is clearly labeled and cant beat the price on this route.

I ended up with pretty much the same measurements. 118 wb, 84.5 track width, and 50 prp. I made the rear as tight as possible and ended up with about 4 up travel before the tires rub the inner well I made the inner wells tight to the seat and are just 1/8plate, not tubing there. Mine is super low to be on 40s so with a higher ride height I could get a narrower track width. I was able to get mine a lot lower by not running a truss on the rear axle and running the lower links parallel. Not sure on the tub stretch since I cut it off at the doors and tubed the rest, I wo7ld guess about 20. Its just skinned to look like a jeep tub.

Love your concept Ill be following along as well. The suicide doors sound like a great idea. Im shooting to squeeze a 56 bench between the tub rails as I measure 55-1/2 between the tub and hope to have the bench far enough in front of the rear axle to clear along with 2 spacers on the full width axles....we shall see.

It's been said already, but really cool out of the box build. Certainly not cutting any corners on the process or the parts list!

Looking forward to more progress.

I wish, oldest is three with twin 6 month olds. The three year old loves getting out to the shop though.

Rear Fusion Dana 60 came in. 5.38, ARB, big brakes, chromo shafts, 1/2 wall tubes, etc.

Front steering arms came too. These things are massive. Keyed and use six ARP studs with springless design and double sheer for tie rod. Top that off with some huge castings for the knuckles. Shouldnt go anywhere.

Got the front axle all assembled. I got it from Fusion. 5.38 gears, 10.1 ring gear, ARB, 3.5x7/16 tubes, Solid knuckles and Cs, Chromo shafts, drive slugs, huge disc brakes, and the first set of their full hydro double shear steering arms.



Also my 4.3 Atlas two speed with cable shifter and adapters showed up.

Having three kids under 4 is killing my shop time. Hopefully my twins start sleeping a little better so I can sneak out of the house more. A pile of badass parts is good motivation though!

My build wont turn out nearly as nice as yours but Im just stretching my TJ to LJ and using the goat subframe too. Its really nice.

We have one on the way but Im looking at a 48-50 prp seat just in case a 3rd kid sneaks in the future.

Thanks! Ive been following your build from the beginning. Looks great.

Kids sneak up on you... I thought we were having our second when it turned out to be twins! Now building a big Jeep for three kids. I hope to fit a 54 PRP.
