Nice but I don't plan to have that much in my rig when I'm done and sure don't have that kinda $$$ right now.This is for sale local to me http://classicbroncos.com/forums/showthread.php?t=200450
Not sure how close to the rules it would be, motor for sure would have to be changed.
Oh, I dunno... Leaf springs, AMC V8, CJ5 is shorter wheelbase. Seems like a couple of large disadvantages to me..Maybe the Stock Mod class is off the hook but I don't really see much room for creativity in the Stock class. Obviously a v8 Heep is going to be hard to beat but I just won't build a Jeep.
Explorer 5.0 would be a good way to pick up a decent gt40 5.0 and 4r70w trans cheap, you can usually find a wrecked one pretty cheap, although cash for clunkers has driven the price up a bit.Do it! This EB was BAYUD. It had the floor cut out behind the seats, a 'sploder 5.0, auto, prolly a t-case of sorts, and chromoly this and that. It had a really good finish too!
It had like an old NASCAR grand national Buick V6, but it sounded like they forgot to put the headers back on it before they left the garage. It was gawdayum FAST too!
Where are you from in Tn, mtbrjon?
Yea stock mod is attractive but cost way more to be competitive.Go for it man, I'm glad to see someone build an EB for the stock class.
I would have like to race mine, but it's WAY too far gone to bring back to the stock class and I've realized that the price to race is above my head right now, unless I can get a team together.
If I was to build one, it'd be a extra cab ranger with a 347 or 393 in the stock mod class.
Rules say stock block, no forced induction unless it came with it from the factory. Otherwise it's open. Every year I have heard many guys complaining about fuel delivery issues. That's why I think Propane would be best. Makes refuel easy as well.Can you run EFI or does it have to be stock induction also? I've run Mustang EFI set ups on many older 289/302 engines before.
