this was a before pic with a cell phone. it started as a back yard project and soon turned out to be a little more then just that.

first thing we did was strip the old engine and trans out, along with the old axels and well you catch the drift.....

ok now i take my 258 4.6L golen stroker

and then meet it up with the NSG-370 6 speed Trans

after finding out that a specialty pilot bearing had to be ordered from the Golen company i had to sit there and wait for a week before getting the right part. but once i got that in i was back up and running again

another view of the engine and trans

the next step was to go and have a round of beers, then get up and drop the motor in

now that it was in i braced the trans with a porta jack and started on the axles, thats right i bought some sweet axles for really cheap. currie dana 44's detriot lockers, 5.38 gears, but stuck with 5 on 4.5", don't ask me why i just kinda didn't think about changing.

so after working on the angles and welding the perches and all that wonderful time consuming stuff, i finally mounted them. i also mounted my currie anti-rock sway bar for the front as well. also not to mention my 2" shackle lift as well.

then it came time to put in the rear axle and mount my rear anti rock sway bar. i did this in hopes that it will help with the traction... if not then i can just take it out. sorry i don't have a picture of that yet, but i will get one. then after that i went ahead and started working on my front bumper. and got that ready to mount.

then i started to make my winch mount.... i wanted to make sure this was never coming off! lol so i reinforced it and after welding a few spots i put it one the front, and i must say it looks pretty bad ***

you can see one of my friends was trying to figure out where to mount the new turn signals, so we decided to go with the TJ design

got the rear axle complete with my new tires i got in as well. also put a rear anti-rock sway bar.

added some rear backup lights i can remote turn on in case i need to tow something or all in all just need to see behind me late at night.

and the coolest part (i think) of the whole jeep is the diamond plate lockable truck i custom made.

sketchy steering that rocky mountain outfitters sold to me for my SOA conversion. don't ever buy from them. they took three months to send me it and when i got it, it looks like something i could have done in my work shop.

built my own roof rack.

installed my isolator and DUI distributor.

also got my dual batteries and trey installed
