Okay gonna start my build thread finally. Starting with an 84 cj7.
Gonna extend body and frame 14 inches in rear. Gonna move back the rear axle 10 inches, I'll lose some departure angle for now, but I may move it back more when I link the rear. For now the rear will be sprung over with relocated spring hangers and shackle mounts to give it a flat frame rail. I have some 14" coilovers for the front. It is getting 3 linked. Also got 60s, 4.88s, a Detroit and an elocker. Plan is to run 37s fairly low. Also got a Howell fuel injection setup for the 4.0

Decided the hood and fenders needed to be "upped"

your hood is going to leak now haha



how much did you cut off?



whats the plan for fenders ?

I wanna do my cj7 hood


I cut off 3.5 inches. Other than the tube, I won't be running fenders for now. Later on I may build some removable ones for the street.
