Project CJ-2ubed

Well, I normally don't post on Pirate, but I'll give it a try. Here's the low down. About a year ago, the shop bought a 47 Cj2-a to restore. During the restore, we bought a new tub due to the old one being too far gone. I've finished the restoration and decided to build a buggy using the old body. Luckily, we had a lot of donor parts laying around to make it a little easier. Starting with a left over JK 3.8L motor, trans, and np241. Cj tub, terra flex lower control arms, crappy old seats, etc. Bought a set of axles, 14 bolt rear, 60 front. PSC full hydro, 39.5", same ole same ole.

To set it off, being a 47, I'm going with a WW2 North Africa theme. Rat Patrol for the one's that remember the TV show. Equipped with .30 machine gun on top, and grenade shifter. Here's about 6 months of work.

First the restoration.

Started setting up the axles, sorry, couldn't afford (or find) a king pin 60. Ball joints will do.

Grenade shifter, I've had this grenade since I was a kid. I actually got kicked out of elementary school for bringing it to class.




Thanks Carl from Old Town Customs for the free gusset. Your tha shit.
