CYJ8 "Scrambled" build

Figured I'd start a build thread here. My last jeep was a 2dr JK stretched, 4 linked, coilovers, etc... Then we had twins. Now with 3 kids I needed a new ride to fit all the family in. Bear with me, as garage time is limited with three boys 3 and under! Here is my twisted plan:

-88 YJ tub stretched 24" to CJ8 length. Stretch is in the door frame opening. This will be a four door, with no body B pillar, and the rear doors being suicide. The front doors will close into the rear similar to an extended cab pickup. Looks weird as shit with no doors on it.

-CJ front clip and tailgate

-LS1 from 1999 Corvette with 4L80e

-Atlas 2 speed 4.3:1

-ORI Struts: 14" front and 16" rear

-Four linked front and rear with full hydro

-Goat Built subframe with remainder being custom tube chassis

-Fusion 4x4 kingpin 60 front ARB, 5.38, Chromo, etc...

-Fusion 4x4 60 rear ARB, 5.38, Chromo, etc..

-Trailready beadlocks

-42" Maxxis Trepdors

-PRP Premium front seats with 54" rear PRP bench



You get the idea, typical family truckster



Pictures to follow.

Donor jeep came out of Kansas

Out with the old

Frame table I built using some 2x6x1/4 wall. Legs are adjustable basement "jacks" that allow me to fine tune the level of the table as I roll it around the shop. Casters are rated to 1000lb ea and locking.

Got the tub back from sandblast. Need a new driver floor pan, fix B pillar rust under where factor roll cage sat, and needs a new rear corner. Not too bad.

Donor LS1

Starting the stretch and boatsides. Used telescoping tubing welded down each side to keep everything straight.

New floor supports I bent up from some 14ga

New 16ga floor pan I bent up in the cheapo HF brake and bead roller

Start of repair panels for the B Pillar


Sadly that brings me up to date. More to come.

Those sliding braces are brilliant.

Also, I'm impressed the Harbor Freight Bead Roller worked on 16g. Nice work.

If this project comes out half as clean as your JK did, it's going to be sweet.

Enjoy not having the JK electronics to deal with.

Really nice work on the floor pan.

I bet your cage will be interesting looking, too.

The square tubing worked great. It has a .010" gap between the two and kept everything perfectly in line.
I had to beef up the HF stuff from the way it comes, but it does the job.

Thanks. The JK was fun, but I will definitely not miss the electronics, or not a single straight panel on them

Iíve thought of it for years as well, and from all my searching itís never been done. It will be something different. Most four door CJ/YJ/TJ conversions look awkward in my opinion and I didnít want to use a JKU. Hopefully it doesnít end up looking like shit!

Great job with the HF bead roller. I think it looks much more "factory" than the flat floors I usually see on here. Did it make a big difference in rigidity?

Thanks. Using the bead roller on panels makes a huge difference in rigidity. I need to get a motor and foot control on mine because bigger panels like this by yourself with the hand crank are a pain in the ass.

Damn I'm definitely in for this one!! Great work so far excited to see how the doors work might steal that! I also think 4 door CJ YJ TJs look funky as hell. Looking forward to seeing the finished work!

You might enjoy these two videos. Lazze talks about wheeling to stretch the metal before running a bead. It makes sense and the video shows that the results are much flatter.

Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XBxVtocDqc

Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTjPZ9ljZ10

I've been watching a lot of his vids lately.

Pure beef right there! Fusion 4x4 kingpin 60. Specs: 70.5Ē WMS, 5.38 gears, ARB, Chromo 35 spline shafts, knuckles keyed and six ARP studs for high steer, big brakes, pinion angle, caster, and diff location all custom to my specs.

Anyone looking for an axle, give these guys a call. Dan and the team are great. My matching rear 60 is coming soon.

Boat sides built from 16ga and tacked in, B pillar repair panels built, new drivers floor pan, new rear corner, drop down tailgate in. Still need to do raised rear wheel wells and finish weld. Then onto rear doors.

The boatsides will have 2x2 square in the pocket that a step will be built off of and tubing tying to rest of tube chassis. It also will have cage bolting to it allowing everything to be tied together.
