8-3/4 Mopar rear end is great.
Very popular with the muscle car/street rod guys.
MUCH stronger than the 8.8.
Like a Ford 9 inch, you just drop the pumpkin to change gears.
Your rig looks much better without the snorkel!
Those things seem to be like the coffee can mufflers for the ricer crowd...You may not actually need it, but gosh darn it, you've got the look!

I had gotten new fenders and would have had to cut the drivers side, and I didnt have a hole saw or a template to follow. I never really care that much for it anyway though. It would have never been of any use to me. I dont plan on taking me jeep through any lakes lol. I like it better without it anyways. I need to find a gasket kit for that 8 3/4 axle. The pumpkin seal and axle shaft seal are leaking.

Well I got to looking at my chili pepper edition and I am beginning to think that its not factory. It has the same badges and stickers the tj chili pepper edition jeeps used. And this jeep used to belong to the owner of the car lot and so I wouldnt think it would be impossible for him to get a hold of a badge and some stickers. That and considering that there is also a rubicon sticker on the side of it. Oh well, I dont care. I still love my jeep. Anyway, some parts have arrived and I thought I would post up pics.

The "new" cj7 tailgate:


The 79 cj5 dash that I've already been to work on:




Me rolling the odometer forward to my current mileage:


Thats it for now. Ill keep you posted.

IIRC, I would say it was an 18 gauge sheetmetal. That seems to be the popular size for jeep. BTW, you selling that snorkel???????
