Hi, well, here I am in the build section. I'm dne' and the project is actually my brothers. I have the place, the tools, the desire. I'm retired and it's just something to keep me busy otherwise I'd go nuts not fixing something. My brother (Robo) kept looking until he found something, may not be the best CJ, but it's Ok. I have been looking at the idea of a V6, but find it just a little too much to do. This project when finished, will be just a beeboper around the neigborhood, go to the store, never on the major roads. Supposedly the engine had been gone through a few years ago, new carb, didn't really get to drive it too much, but sounded ok. I don't have a pic, but has the winch which comes off of the transfer case, you know, a driveshaft to run the winch. I think we could either do away with it, sell it and use for "other". However, it's unique~ we have time to think about that. We drug it outside to pressure wash the undercarriage, but the crap was on so thick, it's going to be hell to make it look nice, but the tub will be removed soon and can take a better look. I didn't think I'd ever use this bearing splitter again, but it got the steering wheel off and then I pulled the entire column. Just prepping to remove the tub/body. I'd appreciate it is someone can interpret what the serial number means? The pic below: I had posed this as an idea to my brother, though it wouldn't look exactly like it, it's just something to spur excitement. I'm a pretty good painter, and good at metal work, bodywork. A question, but with tires like these, would the F engine be able to put the little jeep around, would tires/wheels like this even work? It's all imagination at this time I hope to get to "know" some of you even if we never meet. I've been on many many forums and may even know someone on here I'll be back! dne'
