1948 CJ2A Finish Build 4.3 Vortec, T19, Dana 20,
I picked up a five year ground up build of a 48 CJ2A. It still needs a few things and thought this may be the right place to get feedback.
It needs a roll bar or cage. Room is a factor getting in and out is not as easy as it once was, now a 51 and a bit heavier etc. any toughts? I am also needing seat belts. Simpsons with shoulder harness?
The axles are Dana 44's and are the wide track, so the wheel he used is 10" big offset with 31X10.50X15 TSL Super Swampers. They stick out over halfway beyond the body line. The only way I see to bring the offset in would be to go an 18 or 19inch wheel top clear the steering arm. Flares are an option, but have not found one I like.
I am also looking to find 1/2 doors, I may have a custom aluminun one made, anyone tried this?
I am adding a Saturn OD this week and fixing a problem with the T19...It keeps poping out of gear in second and third under compression... any thoughts?
