Lee333, did you have your Jeep at a car show a few weeks ago in Maspeth? It has to be the one I saw.

Wow thats a crazy build! Sounds like a fun rig to drive. Any reason why the front wheels are smaller?

That said, many of the old drag cars had motorcycle and similar front fenders when they raced. It will only probably do about 130 for a couple of seconds so aerodynamics should not be too critical. I just dont want any lift.
Yeah i would definitely do the fiberglass front if were you. That would make it a lot more aerodynamic. That and maybe a hardtop because, at high speeds, a soft top would probably start falling apart lol.

WELCOME kidstf:

We just have to see your Jeep. Post up some pictures. It is easy to post, just go to advanced and drop in a couple pics. Let us know how you came about your build also.

It sounds like a real custom job there.

Yepper, its pretty custom, and started off with an idea and a pile o parts, after I finished an Aqualu aluminum bodied YJ (which is featured on Aqualu's website) Having gone the conventional route, and being a street rodder at heart..It is, an Arizona YJ frame, with a 4 wd hardware glass body. It has an 8.8 Ford Explorer diff, and a Commanche 2wd front axle, converted to leafs, and lowered 5". Small block Chev, on Novak mounts, with TH350,Hedman block huggers, into 2 1/2 mandrel bent true duals into Dynomax mufflers. 73 Z28 steering box, borgeson shaft, stock Jeep steering linkage, custom Dash, YJ seats, lowered 4". CJ windshield frame, cut 6", with real auto glass, YJ hardtop, cut 6"(not an easy task) with aluminum side windows and tailgate..so it looks sedan deliveryish..or, as the appraiser said the other day..armoured carish. It is bullet fast, weighs 2120 lbs, handles like a snake on sandpaper, and stops like crazy. At the moment, it is still in primer, and will be until the fall, when I take it apart and paint everything separate, over the winter. This is about my 40th build, and I am no rookie, but at 61, it's also probably my last. Cost of build, about $11,000.00 in parts, and about 2,500 hours. All done by me, except the trans, and the engine machine shop time. Everything has been rebuilt, all new bolts, screws and washers, bearing and seals..do it once, do it right. The website wont let me post a pic for some reason..HELP!!!

Good thing you can do the labor yourself. That would cost a fortune to have to pay a shop for all that work!

Generally I think lowering a Jeep is a crime but what you have done is pretty unique and I think it looks great. Fantastic work man, would love to see some video of it tearing up the track!

Proof that a Jeep can do anything. I like it. Well executed and looks damn good.
