so i havent gotten very much work done on the body, other then putting primer on the spots i have repaired so far and i sat the body on the frame for now, had to get hte chassis out of the drive way for now, having a bbq soon for my dads retirement party



body is just sitting on the mounts for now, gonna pull the 4cyl out and start mocking up the new mounts for the 360



picked up a dana 44 from an 84 dodge, has the one piece axle shaft and auto locking hubs







machined the rotors for now when i was at work, disassembled the hubs and cleaned and repacked everything, have to get new seals, ball joints, tie rods, u joints for it, im not gonna worry about getting new brakes until its at the point of being drive able, i think my brother in law still has a couple of 9" rear ends, if so i will be getting one for the rear, if not i will get what ever i can find, i have all the stock axles and drive line parts up for sale, so hopefully i can get some cash out of that for some new parts, since the new front axle is passenger drop i was thinking of getting a dana 300 with twin sticks for it

as it currently sits with out wheels again, at least its inside this time



sold the stock front and rear diffs, front dana 44 is some what in place for now, i will have to out board the springs before it will be properly in place, talked to my brother in law kevin and he has a 9inch ford rear end for me, i may have found a passenger drop transfer case for the jeep, hoping to sell some more stock parts so i can keep getting more stuff for the jeep

Build is looking really good! Reminds me of when we had to patch mine up. Lots and lots of rust. Will be interested to see how it turns out when it's all done. Keep up the good work!

definitely lots of rust up here, lol, it seems like i work on it in short bursts, it try to find time for it but other projects come up first, i'm trying to sell some of the unneeded stock parts so i can buy some of the little things like front end parts, brakes and gaskets for the engine, they are what seem to eat up the most money
