Got a new toy..

I havent been here in quite a while. I decided its time for a new project so I picked this YJ up today. Plans are: Mopar LA V8, 727 and 208 or 241 Tcase. Then I'll move on to axles. Im on the fence about full width or not. Guess Ill cross that bridge when I get to it. Also want to do SOA, get rid of the body lift and extended shackles. Then an on board air system. She came with half doors and a brand new bikini top.

Looks like a good base for a project jeep. "Project Count Shakula"?

Thanks for the support guys... I think.
I was going to focus on the engine first but in light of all the support I think I'll work on the suspension instead.

Popped her top and cleaned her up. Didnt realize how much I missed a Jeep!

Other news.. I just acquired a rebuilt 340 to put in her!! That will be interesting I think.

Nice and clean YJ! Yeah the suspension first.... way its setup now is pretty dangerous. You can scrounge up the drivetrain parts while you're doing that. Yeah on the mopar 340 wow I haven't heard of those in a LONG time! This should be an interesting one!
