Great build and some quality work here.I see one problem though.The way the harness is mounted is a bad idea.It should be mounted parallel to the floor so in case of a wreck is doesn't compress your spine as your body tries to move forward.The way you have it will compress your spine and give you a lot of problems.Just watching out for ya.

ain't that the truth, I picked up a fiberglass cj5 complete body and will be narrowing and dovetailing but this build has given all kinds of ideas on how to do the tubework for it now

Wow, i guess its been awhile since I last posted, couldn't even find my own thread. Things are picking up on the Willys. I tried to start it the other day, but no signals from the pcm After some testing on a known good 3.8L JK, turns out that the factory pcm will not start without all of the other modules (Central gateway, Wcm, coded key) I was hoping that it would work independently. F-ing new computer controlled jeeps., its the way of the future. I'm thing of using an 06 Town and Country controller (3.8L) non CAN bus, and switching to cable throttle. Other than that, all-most done with the brakes, guard for the steering ran, and some nick knack shit. I also scored a free synthetic winch rope from Tom at Psc steering for wiring his KOH buggy up! Pics to follow tomorrow. Adam

GREAT BUILD ! when you're done i'll send you the 49... ha ha...

keep up the good work, i hope to see it person on the trails one day.

on a side note the reason photobucket "link copy" isn't working is because of a update of Java. they said they won't fix it. It sucks i tell ya.
