    Nice! Can't wait to see it come together. Are you going to go back to the green color? A little off topic but is that a "Super Jeep" hood in the back ground of your axle pic?

    To be honest....
    havent even taken one part off the green one.....
    everything I am working on, or with so far has been a new purchase...

    that's my 73 super jeep and my 60 cj5 in the background....
    both of those have their own stories as well...

    Let me get this straight, your building a very nice CJ6, and behind that in your work space is a nice shiney dauntless CJ5, some of us may be filled with inadequacies via Jeep envy.....

    Thanks... Go big or go home right..

    I don't know if culmination is the correct word...
    but I'm building this jeep as a testament to all the things I have learned and f'ed up over the almost 2 decades I have been playing with jeeps.
    Just trying to build a solid, bulletproof, proven and tested cool Jeep....

    Very nice build! Quality parts. Mine will get an ARB in the rear as soon as I can source some offset 30 spline shafts for a good price.

    Started dressing the engine this weekend...

    [​IMG]

    and after about 3-4 hrs....

    still haven't decided on valve covers..
    need to build oil pump and test for pressure...
    figuring out acc. brackets and pulleys might be interesting as well.. have a box of parts and bolts that need to be sorted out.
    There was some guesswork on the oil pan and pickup tube..
    seemed a bit loose in the threads and I need a much better in. torque wrench for the pan bolts..
    I might be pulling and re sealing this week...
