New project

here is what i started with



Here it is with body removed




I decided to build a trail rig instead of putting more money into my red J33P. I really like how the red one looks handles on/off road. So i decided to just build a true trail rig in my spare time and as money allows.

Here are my ideas for the build.
1. 350 SB
2. trubo 400 tranny
3. Atlas t-case
4. D-44 front and rear or D-60 depending on which i find a
better deal on when time comes.
5. OX Locker front and rear
6. Gears not sure what ratio i'll need yet
7. Tire size somewhere around 35-37"
8. Full Tube body

I plan on this taking about 12-18 months to get done and i will need lots of help in the info area so please be patient with me if i dont understand your answers the first time. I will be building this all in my own garage unless i am taking it to someones place to get help with tube bending or welding. I have never built a rockcrawler before so i am looking forward to this problems and all. I will post pics of the entire build and any and all advice is welcome as i know i will need all the advice i can get.

I plan on it. Been wanting to do this for a long time now. My 7yr old keeps taking bolts out of this thing i didnt even know it had. This is being built for me and him so at least he wants to be envolved which is great since this will go to him when i start another 5 or so years down the road.
