What top are you going to run, Scrambler? Is that the same length as an LJ?

I picked up an lj top before this swap got popular. The scrambler tub is a different length 24Ē longer lj is 15Ē. Scrambler wheelbase is 103.5Ē lj wheelbase is 103.4Ē. The lj is essentially a bobbed scrambler. Mine is at 113Ē itís long but I wanted the front axle far out so if wanted to stuff 40ís under it I could.

When I bought this cj7 it had a scrambler half cab top. It looked cool but I couldnít fit in it well and it was my daily driver.

Are you going hard top or soft? How are you going to deal with the difference at the windshield mounting?

Soft top. Iíll document it. I know the corners have to get trimmed down. Also slots in the frame. Not quite sure yet on that Iíve seen a few ways none of them really clean. Thought about patching in the slots from another frame. But Iíll have plenty of pictures.

Cool, was just curious. I didn't realize there was that big of a length difference in the LJ and Scrambler tops/tubs.

Pulled it outside threw a hard door on. Front axle is really forward. I may move it back 2”. The rear overhang is perfect.

Wow your alive! Should be something simple. I really like the ďsleepsterĒ that tribe 4x4 built for Levi Shirley. So it will be simple. Hoping to get more done here soon Iím running out of time.

Slowly plugging away. My motor is a 4.0 with a t-176/t5 bellhousing with an adapter plate to nv4500. I needed to get rid of the manual clutch linkage with the yj tub and go to hydraulic. Plenty of threads out there but most are dead pictures now. So I’ll document how I did it.

Yj master (not sure if this is right but we shall see) because it bolts up to the tub. 81 Cj 4 cylinder slave. It bolts up but is a little off from the fork. I used a piece of 7/16” all thread and a chunk of the old clutch linkage to make the new rod. It’s 6” long and will have a little adjustment. Never setup hydro clutch from scratch so we shall see. It’s also blocking my exhaust path a bunch.

My genright gas tank skid didn’t quite bolt in. When I stretched the tub the frame ended up 3/16” longer than the frame. I notched the two rear holes for body mounts to get everything to line up. Problem now is the tub hits the tank on the back shoving towards the rear axle enough that the bolt holes didn’t line up. So I welded a piece of flat bar on the crossmember to bolt it up. I’m sure everything in this rig nothing will “bolt in”.

I had real good luck setting up a hydraulic clutch on my Dads CJ. His Jeep is an '82 CJ7, originally with 4 cyl, so we just used the original master & slave cyl's. Engine going in was 5.7 liter chev. Trans was SM420. Used a Novak release arm and adjustable throw-out bearing. Worked awesome. Hope yours does too, because it saves a ton of work if it does.

Well been getting little stuff done fuel lines brake lines are essentially done hoping to knock the exhaust out in the next two weeks and get drivelines built.

Heres some poser shots of it getting measurements for drivelines, shocks and bump stops.

Wasnít looking forward to this. But really wasnít bad. I had to notch the frame to get another 1Ē of uptravel. Iíll be around 5.5Ē which should be fine for this build.

Had to notch the grill Iíll have to reenforce it. Made some extra room for hydro assist fittings.

That is some awesome work. I had one of those magnetic drills at a place I worked and have wished more than once that I had one in my shop.

I’ve learned two things after reading this. 1, I'm lazy and 2, I’m unimaginative! Great build man! That’s going to be beautiful!

Do you have or know of a write up on building your rear corner panels and fenders?

On mine I just used genright blanks marked centerline to axle. Iím not stretched but a few inches in the rear to allow for factory tank and 14 bolt to jive if I ever went that way. I used 1Ē rigid aluminum conduit for the flares friend welded it for me. Turned out ok. Not perfect.

Hereís a thread about making diy corner armor. Some of the pics are dead. I was going to go this route but found my blanks second hand cheap.
