But this one will be desert camo!

EDIT: Damn that's funny, the picture I drew looks a hell of a lot like the first picture you posted of Grahams!

Okay, got a lot done today. I boxed the center passenger side of the frame. I used the same thickness material as the frame (12 gauge) as should always be done (but I had what I had with the front end) and stitch welded it. Came out pretty nice! I have to do the driver side and the bottom side of the passenger. Let me know what you guys think.

I also threw those boggers on the front of my CJ I'm doing a disk brake swap on, looks a little funky with 2" wheel spacers!

Got a better weld on it today. Bad thing is it poured down rain when I was done, so I gotta scrape the rust off tomorrow.

Thanks! I can't wait to get the chassis rolling! Then onto body work, which will be a hoot. Thanks for the complement man!

Okay little update, front axle will be coming back 2 weeks from now (well maybe get it back before then, but won't be finished until 2 weeks).

I got a RBD-050 Bender, god I love Santa. I also picked up the last stick of 1 3/4".120 DOM tubing at the metal yard. I'll use 5' of it to practice bending with. This week I am also going to install the ARB in the rear axle. I am up in the air right now on whether I should truss the rear axle while I'm at it, I would use the 1 3/4".120 tubing for it? And of course ARC weld it.

Got the front axle back cut down to 58 1/2" WMS from 67". Came out GREAT. Mooge ball joints, 4:88 R/P, ARB. The rest I cam setting up. Waiting for the shafts from Alloy USA to come in (2 weeks) and then it goes under the Jeep.

Got my transfercase coming, it's a 1980 D300. I got the 1980 model because it has the shorter rear shaft making it so I gained 1 1/8" rear driveshaft length, which in a rig THIS SHORT I need everything I can get. When we get the case, we'll go with JB conversions 4:1 kit. Also should be getting my transmission tomorrow. Almost have everything I need for the jeep, now it's finding the time to throw this shit together.

If you end up needing a stouter output( I did, running the same short shaft as you), get the Novak ultra short 32 spline output for the rear......You will gain about another inch and a half...but its about the $450 range.....I went through two of the stock outputs before they were able to get the production ultra short kit to me.

Should I have gotten the longer rear shaft version if I cam going to replace that part anyways? I paid $100 more for the short shaft.

CRO, that willys is the same look I am going for, military looking but heavy duty. I decided to paint the frame and all those pices the army color, trying to talk my dad into going flat military paint all around. If you look at my profil picture it's the same willys!

No, Thats the cool thing about Novak's kit, it fits any 300 case, factory long or short.....it has both patterns on it.

If I break the short shaft than I'll get novaks, I'll give it a go there as is.







Oil was nasty. Shafts are pitted, so I am going to 35 splien shafts, axles weak point will be the 8.5" Ring Gear, but with 35's this little jeep will be bomb proof. Pulled the R/P earlier tonight. Tomorrow I hope to finish the frame and rear bumper.

Keep going

Your build reminded me of mine. But you need more lug nuts...

I recommend a Rear HP 60 Detroit and 33's. 5.0 EFI, NP435. Yeah, it fits.

It's a '76 cj7, D30 front in that picture and M20 rear with 2" spacers. Lift is a worn out SOA. It's been a great Jeep, never had one issue with it running hard trails (though driving experience goes a long ways).
