    I was just thinking that I should start a thread on the CJ 6 count. You beat me to it. I have noticed alot of 6's on the build page. They are comming out of the wood works.

    I have a 1962 CJ6 that I am just getting ready to start on. It has a 318 the previous owner put in. They did a kind of crude installation that I need to clean up. Not sure what all I want to do to it. I'm very interested in sharing ideas. :)

    I am presently doing a frame up rebuild of a 1970 CJ-6. My progress to date includes a restored powder coated frame, centered D44 rear and a D30 front with 4.27's and a 4" Rancho lift. The P/S box is mounted and the brakes have been re-plumbed with stainless lines.
    I am currently cleaning up my 225 out of the Utah CJ and will be hooking it up to a SM 420 / D300 combo. I hope to have it installed by the end of next month.
    I will be a long road to completion but it will be worth it in the end. I hope to put some pics together and write something up in the Build section in the future.
    It is fun to watch the progress others are making on there sixes. Keep the pics and threads coming on these special Jeeps!

    One of these days with a candidate like this one I think we could get Tim Reese to re-join the ranks of CJ6 ownership...;)

    Add another 2 to the count.

    ?1964? little more than a frame and axels with the remains of a tub on it (but it came with a hard top), no engine, trans or transfer

    Don't recall the year on the other (maybe a '61 or '67) which appears to be bone stock (with the exception of the wood tub that starts in front of the rear wheels and runs back - hate it when a PO butchers something - guess that I'll have to get a new tub for this one).

    This pic is over two years old-- but I have not photoed the CJ6 lately.

    Last Month I got a new windshield, added a Roll bar-- and rewired the entire Jeep. The seats have been recovered. The Floor pan repaired.

    In about 80 hours of labor the Jeep will be road worthy.
