How did you drive it home with no engine? LOL

It doesn't look nasty... it looks awesome! :D How are you going to work on it once you get the body back on though? Looks like a tight fit.

Love the sawzall... old school!

I think I fixed that one for ya.:tea:

BTW, what transmission is that?

Awesome 03-20-2010 11:36 AM

Ah okay... I can see now in that last pic... the brake master cylinder might cause you problems later. Tube fenders will help. I've always wondered about putting a V8 or a V10 in a Jeep... I think I'd swap to a diesel though.

stoveguy01 03-21-2010 10:30 AM

Ive got a tube fender kit for front and rear waiting tell I change the front axle and suspension in a cpl weeks.. So It fired right up last night. sorry no new pics yet. Ive got shifter to do no remove clutch pedal shorten driveline reinstall fenders another busy day. But I should be driving it back to work tomorrow as planed:cheers:
