My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Its not a good thing when i get something stuck in my head.

The weak dana 30 and 5.38 gears. Ive had thoughts of selling the hole rig and starting fresh somewhere else.

Dynatrac, currie, 76 hp 44, 44/60, 60 can i press my own tubes? 14ff, d80, 70, hi9

I want them all narrower, these are bad thoughts

This shits an addiction

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

It sounds like you should start with something that has a actual frame!

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Im thinking the same thing.

I like the jeep platforms but those with frames cost more than im willing to pay.

I dont think im out anything to keep pressing on with the xj. Run it to the ground

Im trying to decide if axles 5" wider is okay with me. 2.5" a side. That way i can run available shafts

Im just thinking outloud, probably wont make any moves till i have major breakage again.

Yup, the sickness is chronic.
Got the XJ 'done' enough for me, folks are lining up to buy it since I bought a TJUR and workling that over. I keep telling them the XJ ain't for sale, it's my 'beater' now.

Of course I get another black one to show absolutely every flaw, like NV pin striping.. I'm sure my gang will try to lead me thru the willows first chance they get. Ain't happening, I'm old enuf to take the raz for turning back.

I can't tell if that is an old Ford inline 6 or a slant 6 Chrysler motor that you're building Evan....I'm leaning towards Ford

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

With paying attention to rim offset I'm betting you could end up within 1 inch of your current track width....

You stating 5 inches wider must mean you're thinking jk44 or ford 44.... can't think of anything else that width and driver drop... AFAIK any 60 starts at 68 wms and grows to around 72...

I was on the hunt for a jk 44 for about a year but never found the right deal... I think nowadays I'd be more apt to go the ford 44 if I swapped....

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Seat is kinda in. I've been in and out trying to decide on height. As pictured i really like the position but clutch feels aqward. So tomorrow will lower it 1.5" or 1" and maybe bolt it in. Also need to make a seat belt extension thats DOT approved.

This seat is very comfortable I'm excited to get out on the trail to see of its comfortable after a few hours.

Where i have the seat a 6ft persons head would probly touch or even 5 10. Lol

The seat base will get some gussets and probly a couple bars tieing across the base.

It does take alittle more effort to get in over the sides but not bad now that I've trained myself to get in without hanging on steering wheel.
