I wish there was then there might be one for my 53. The closest I have found is for a CJ5 or 7 from tomken.

Nope.

I just did a 1/4 elliptic rear on a '46 for a guy, but I also made a new frame and stretched it a bit (105" Wheelbase). Willys frames leave a lot to be desired when run with 35" plus tires, so I don't think anyone will come out with one either.

There is no commercial available kit for that vehicle at this time. You could buy a kit for a CJ-7, and modify it, but since you mention you have neither the time nor expertise to fabricate such a kit maybe having one custom made at a 4wd shop is in order for you. Oh and maybe the lack of responses here is due to your "bolt on" question, read the faq for this newsgroup. flipoff2: If you want bolt on go to JU.

I said I didn't have the tooling or shop space. I never said I didn't have the expertise or the time.

Thanks to the rest of you who responded!

Your sig reads 377CI on glass tub. Are you running the stock 50+year old, open C-channel frame? And if you are, I would think that the frame has to have seen some mods to accommodate that big motor. You gotta be doubling or more on the original horsepower, increasing weight in the drivetrain area, which is shifting the weight-transfer of that already short WB nugget. Are you running the stock WB?

If you are considering a severe suspension modification like that, you might want to re-think using the original frame. Gawd, even now, without changing over to coils I would at least get in there and box it in.

To me, switching to coils means you plan on major abuse to the vehicle. If so, make the frame at least as strong as the rest of that cool-sounding ride. Hell, everything, up and including the cage (ou are running a cage, right?), hangs off that frame.

I urge you to build your vehicle on the strongest foundation you can. That being said, you don't need a shop or fab tools. you just need to get to a welder ASAP! Good luck;)
