Wow, that's a lot of vomit... I think its gonna look stupid long. But... I am looking forward to seeing it done and maybe you will prove me wrong. For the Jeeps/Trucks sake I hope you do!

Ahh, Put a 3 inch lift and some 33's on it. With it that long and low with 20's you're going to get high centered on driveways or speed bumps... speaking from experience here...

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

It's a photoshop, and the author of said photoshop posted it

A very well done one, every time I see it posted... people ask for more pics. No one even realizes it's a photoshop till they see it next to the full collection of other versions (other colors, door lengths, bed lengths, etc) and it always seems to pop up when someone starts a 4 door MJ thread...

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

As for the driveline I'm not sure exactly what I plan on doing with it. It will receive attention down the road sometime though. Would love to make it into a sleeper and slide a V8 in it but then all the wiring will have to change.

This holiday weekend hoping to get quite a bit more done but will see how it actually pans out with spending time with the family before I leave for work again. Hope to get the rest of the welding done on the frame so I can get it off the jackstands then start working on everything else. When doing the roof I also plan on filling in the holes from the luggage rack to smooth everything out and give it a cleaner look. Hope to get the rest of the rotted floor of the XJ cut out and get it prepped for new floor. Would like to get rockers put into alignment and get them started.

This part isn't as hard as you think...

Everything you need to know about building an LS harness is in there.

Lowering it and clearing the oil pan on an LS motor, now that would be tricky.

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

Took a break from welding on the jeep while it was a little hot outside. Finally got it so it can rest on it's wheels and off the jackstands. Have one more piece to add to the frame to finish getting it together. Got the top of the doors welded together and part of the roof welded from the xj to the back of the mj. Will get pics posted up later after smoothing out the rest of the welds. While taking a break decided to go in the backyard and have a little fun with the leftovers which yielded this picture. Anyone have any thought or inspirations?

Actually, I would be more interested in seeing this project than the long one

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

Yeah I have a bent up body laying around that I might try this out on one day.....only thing is that with such a short distance between the tranny and rear axle, you would have to run an old school short 4 speed without a transfer case so you wouldnt bind your driveshaft.... Either that or or do IRS....or....something?


Looks alot like a bronco II mixed with a Sami.

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

You could do a comp cut, move the rear axle back some and maybe end up close to a cj or wrangler wheel base.

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

Ok some progress pics from the weekend. Got to work on it and got the passenger side pulled together and then welded in place. Lifted the back of it and got the roof lined up and welded up. Now it will be a couple weeks before I get to work on it again as I'm getting sent back to DC again for a week and a half for work. But I am no able to see it standing on it's own wheels and under it's own weight without any jackstands. Checked the wheelbase and it has a wheelbase of approximately 147" which isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.

How it is currently sitting in my driveway.


Pic of passenger side frame and rockers. Frame is welded then a 1x2" angle plate 9" long welded on top of the spliced frame.


Pic of floor that has been cut away to have new metal formed. You can see in the pic the floor has a support piece by the splice that goes from the floor to the rocker. Once I remove this support piece I should be able to bend the rockers down to have them match up with the rockers from the XJ.


Pic of the roof pinch seam welded together. Went ahead and threw some flat black on it to prevent any rust from forming while I'm gone.
