IMHO, I would make this Jeep look like it just rolled off the assembly line.

Is Chumlee and Big Hoss really as dumb as they appear on TV?

I am guessing he was not saying it was Rick's right off the bat because he wanted to avoid those types of questions. Either way I am kind of curious to know if Chum really acts that way. You may want to make sure you use proper grammar when you are referring to someone else as dumb though. Lookin forward to the build dude.

V6? YJ Springs? 35's? Please explain why you suggest this combo?

This jeep is a piece of history. Go completely stock with as many original parts as possible.

If you didnít already have the SBC I would say to use a V6. Forget the auto trans and find a SHORT manual trans. You only have 80Ē of wheelbase to use. Consider an 8.8 for the rear axle, as they are cheap. If you have welding skills than consider pushing the front axle a few inches forward.

it just depends on how he is going to use it...

v6= light engine, great support of parts, popular swap
i def agree with short manual..T-18/SM 420...

YJ springs, nice, flexy, cheap and easy to find..

35's IMO are a great size tire...not too big to require D60's, not too small to crawl over bigger stuff. if you go 33's and you air down, you just don't have much clearance under diffs...
IMO this would make a decent trail rig and something drivable on the street.

if he's going to show it as a full military rig, then he should stick to stock...again..IMO....

anyway, it will be cool to follow his build....if he ever show's back up!

It's a clean build. Totally cool.

35's are where it's at.

Very nice project with amazing potential.

Though I love the idea of a street pounding 350 powering your rig it just doesnt sit right in my gut. Im sure when your done I'll drool all over it with the rest of the JF members, but if it were up to me I would be hunting around for a tuff little 4cyl diesel. It just seems more appropriate.

Enjoy your build, I'm sure it will turn heads whichever way you go.
