The 1951 CJ3A frame is boxed and lengthened to a 91" wheelbase. The wheelbase is the longest that will place the tires fully under the body. The springs are 3" lift and attached with high clearance square ubolts. The front springs are reversed for better handling. A battery box for an Optima is welded to the crossmember.

The shocks are new adjustable Rancho RS9000's.

The power steering box is newer from AGR and has a ujoint coupler and a double-D steering shaft to work with.

The front axle is a Dana 30 from an early 80's CJ7. It has disk brakes, Warn chromoly shafts, Warn internal spline hubs, CTM ujoints, OX locker, and 5.89 gears.

The rear is a Dana 44 from an early 70's CJ5. It is offset to the passenger side to match a Spicer 18 transfer case. It has OEM 1 piece axle shafts, disk brakes with parking brakes, Detroit Locker, 5.89 gears, and cast steel Crane cover. There is too much end play in the shafts. They will have to be re-shimmed.

$1500 for all (firm).

It is located near Boise. I can drive it out a few hundred miles to meet on the interstate. Provide a paypal down payment in this scenario.
