Love this picture, it reminds me of the hand painted Norman Rockwell-esque original Willys advertisements
What a perfectly captured moment.

This is a great photo, SVARAS. I can't wait to see what the new rig looks like.

Part of me wants to see this done, the other part wants to see this build stretch out 20 pages deep, with lots of detail. Like the last one.

More pics! More posts! It's looking really good so far, I'd like to see more. Your last one had so many great details that weren't immediately obvious at first glance, I imagine this build will too--all the fishplates look like just the start. Don't be afraid to show off more of that ingenuity, I'd really like to see it.

I will try to update the thread as much as possible.
I work on the produce business and at this point of the year we are buried on work.
A few more pics of the body mounts.
Nothing like having a Torchmate plasma cutter in the same place were we are building the Jeep

Body mounts welded to the chasis.
Just need to make the final welds on the mounts (folds)

What is going on with the mount on the swaybar crossmember? Confused....

How easy is it to bend the mounts with the weld-seam line? That is a neat trick.

Hey Svaras, I picked up a copy of 2012 Ultimate Adventure simply to watch your rig. Thanks to you I barely got any work done in the shop yesterday.

You ready my mind. I'm going to have to find that book for myself once I can take on a Willy's build.

Unfortunately we had a 2 week strike at the ports and my ATLAS got stuck at customs. That slowed progress, since we need the drivetrain to continue. The good news is that the strike is over and I will have my ATLAS tomorrow

I feel you. When I went to get my wife her new car a strike at the plant caused is to have to wait almost 4 months.

Finally today I got the T Case. I have a LS engine and a TH400 around that we will use for mock up.
We unpacked the suspension bracket so we can start working on that too.

After 2 weeks traveling in Europe Im back to work.
So we have the drivetrain in (temporary engine). Starting to work on the engine and tranny mounts.
Also we are starting with the rear suspension.



Is fun to destroy a new body

Dang that's a lot of gearing options!

How long is the rear driveline going to be you think?
