not the best shot, as the latest mods are still in progress.

110 in wheelbase
21 inch belly
52 inches at the hood
77 inches at the tallest point of the cage
39 in tires
64 inch WMS in rear
65.5 inch WMS in front
double triangulated suspension in rear with 16 in King coilovers, 4 in air bumps
3-link front with 14 in Kings, 2 in air bumps
Stretch was done behind the door - 16 inches
Frame is a heavily modified 69 CJ5 frame. The middle was removed and replaced with a longer frame section.

Drivetrain:

Mild TBI 350 hooked to a TH350/D300, stock gearing, stock hood and fender length
rear - Ruff Stuff 9 inch housing with 5:14 gears with a spool
front - Dodge 60 housing, narrowed 2 inches, 5:13 with a Detroit

fighting weight - 3717 last I scaled it. I expect it to come in about 100lbs lighter next year once all is said and done.

Only a couple of things I would do differently:

put 4 inches of the stretch into the door opening, instead of all of it behind the door.

Maybe start with a custom frame. I'd like the rig to be lower overall. the only way to accomplish that though would be to have the front and rear frame rails kick up higher that they do. tough call though. I'm very fond of being able to still see stock-ish frame sections.

Completely remove front crossmember under that radiator instead of trying to work around the stock piece.

Do a 3 link rear. It would be so much easier to package exhaust and maybe even allow for the fuel tank to drop further into the rails making room for a 3rd seat.

Speaking of tank - make my own to fit the space at hand. Off the shelf cells, no matter what i have tried just don't fit like I would prefer. I still may do this at some point as a side project.

Change the cage design a bit to allow a stock windshield frame to work. The current down tubes block everything. It's not really a design I can easily change at this point. I have a couple of Willys windshield frames in mint shape. I hesitate to chop them up.

adding some frame info from my build:

wheel base 108.5"

Front links: lowers are 36 ½" and upper is like 36 Ό" center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole(at the moment)
Rear links: lowers 30 Ύ" and uppers are 23 Ό" center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole

frame measurements: bumpers not included but are 2x4---frame is built from 2x4x3/16" tube steel----

rear frame piece is 35 Ύ" long to the short point of the angle
center frame pieces is 62" long to the short point of the angles
front frame piece is 42" long to the short point of the angle
the length of the angle is 7 Ό" long when measured (I'll get the angle later)

also I"ll make a drawing and take a pic & post it later since my keyboard rendition doesn't want to post correctly...

| 35 Ύ" | | 42" |
_______________/x _________________
|_____________ \/____________________/ _______________|
| 30 ½" |\________________________/| 36 Ύ" |

Figured I would bring back a 5 year old thread for any updates or new rigs.

Not a ton to update. But the old girl is still out there wheeling hard. Since posting in this thread I did a few updates. I tore apart the front suspension and redid the upper link. The geometry was all wrong. It works amazingly now. Did a 4:1 in the D300 and I swapped converters a time or two. It's pretty dialed in now. These days it's mostly maintenance and mild little updates here and there.
