Still need to buy perches, shock mounts, u-bolts, spring plates, and an outboard kit. Not sure on my spring width so not going to order those yet.
Also need studs for the rear disk break swap, hopefully the guy at Napa will let me look through his bins for the size I need, I'll post part numbers when I find the right ones.

Here's a pic of the high steer arms I got today from Ballistic Fabrication.
These things are beefy!! Everything came for my steering, just took two pics.





Hopefully making lots of progress this weekend, I'll update as it comes along.

Just spent the last 30min looking for a post of his but no dice. Don't think he did a build on here but it's a white 2-Door Cherokee, thinkin early 80s off hand, in Colorado? but hes like a ghost with posts. If I see anything I'll keep track and let you know tho.


Hope you get threw this man, This would be a beast for towing and unstoppable on trails.

Anyone care to guess what's coming off next?? This body is a little heavier than a wrangler tub.

Looking good! That is a great way to get the body off! I might do the same on my YJ!

Thanks. Yeah I kinda hoard the old school noses I find for all my future FSJ projects.



Also have been toying with the idea of making this a dual build. I might put the Cummins and 1ton drivetrain in a J10 or any J-truck, and build the Wagoneer fairly stock and nice. 6" lift on 33's locked dana 44's nothing too wild.

The nose is fairly complete, but the body and interior was gone. the frame was hacked from the middle of the cab back, but the rear axle was there.
I think its a 1963, first year of production I believe. Picked it up for $150.



I saw this on craigslist a while ago and thought about going to check it out. Good to see someone picked it up. You put it to much better use than I ever would have.
