Thought people here might enjoy my build. I took a cj5 body and mounted it on my own frame I built from scratch. Im using c4 corvette suspension front and rear. Its no longer a 4x4. I added coil overs, side pipes, powerglide transmission, and a alcohol sbc race motor that dynos at 500hp and 500 torque. It has a fuel cell and full roll cage. I raised the floor up 6" and chopped the windshield 6". Im working on fabbing up a cj7 hard top. It will be be a street rod for autox and track days. Kirkey race seats five point harnesses.........this is stage one stage two will be upgrading things like wheels, brakes, rear end, and adding a fuel injection system

Not normally a fan of jeep hot rods, but this looks pretty cool! Digging some of the lines you are coming up with. Keep it up!
