After almost a year of planning and rounding up parts and saving scheckles, my Mod-Stock competition rig's construction is now underway ...
The frame is on the jig, drivetrain and body parts on hand, and the axels are soon to be shipped to Waggoner (WMS) for cut, shave and rebuild once the pinion angles are determined.

Construction plans are for a near stock wheelbased WM long arm rear and three link front coil suspension with optional ram assist.

That's where it all starts, newbie ... the foundation and center core ...
Without this important first step you'll have a house of cards and a piller of sand ...
So many just start adding on instead of subtracting first.;)

Nice, straight forward little web site you got going there.
Thanks.
My CJ Project build up site has turned out to be pretty popular ...
Jaffer's CJ-7 Project
I get lots of e-mails from all over commenting about it.
I always try to sprinkle them with good tech and tech references.
The most popular are the CJ Gauge Diagnostics and the Hydraulic Clutch Conversion sections.
Check it out. :p

Looks like a fun buildup and Jaffer you always have the best pics.:cool:

However, it appears that the engine is missing two cylinders.:eek: :eek:

Lemme know...

I might be able to drag the axles back to Farmington neighborhood for you- save a couple bills. WMS is pretty close to my backyard- they do nice work.

That's a very kind offer, Ken. Thank you!
I hope the timing works out right for that.

Jim has cleared the decks is hot to trot on the project.
I've been waiting months for a work window.
He's moved his shop and abandoned doing commercial work...
tired of bailing his crew out of jail ... :flipoff2:

There should be an amazing transformation in the next two weeks.
It will have shallower boat sides to keep the OEM floor and will won't be stretched like Dan Brown and Amy's because of the Mod-Stock regs but the suspension will be similar but lighter sprung and with longer arms with their ends tucked inside the frame for better ground clearance.

... I'll take lots o' pics.:)
