Probably one of the best Jeep builds on here…keep it up. I can't wait to see what she looks like in the next 3 years.

M416 style like mine is pretty simple to build man. Though not as unique!

Jeep and trailer looks great. Can't wait to see them chugging across country and not just county.

It has been a busy two weeks at home , sadly I am now in Minnesota until Thanksgiving . I will get the outboarding done over Christmas , and hopefully the tonneau over Thanksgiving .
After a frame stretch I think you are more than capable of building a trailer. Its been fun towing it around , heck I towed it to church this morning

Thanks very much . I have said it a few times , the toughest part of the project was finding the two tubs .

Thanks for the kind words especially considering all the other awesome rigs on JF . 3 years from now will most likely have me under the hood building a stroker .

I love the 416's , kind of wish I had kept mine . But I couldn't see building two trailers and I like how the tub trailers look behind the newer jeeps a little better . If I was in a CJ or older I think the 416's look far better than the tub trailers .

Me too , heck I want to get it out on a real trail . Maybe over Thanksgiving I can get it to Uwharrie before it closes for the season .

Thanks for reading it , and for the kind words. Dont tell anyone but I found a smoking deal on a JK rubicon rear axle but I dont want to stir up the whole rear axle debate again

I have done a SBC swap and I highly doubt I would do another . Maybe a 4.3 or even the Pentastar , but the stroker works and its a little simpler with the inspection process we have in N.C.

I wouldn't do an SBC - and by that I mean a 305 or 350 - if it was free; I'd take the 4.3, possibly, but an LM7 is simple, cheap and easy to install and get inspected. I wanted a 4.7 stroker for a long time, but the GenIII GM stuff offers a lot more bang for the buck... at least in my opinion. But it's all a matter of what you want.

Boooo. 100% jeep no matter what the cost (not including axles). 304 - yes, amc 360 - close enough, 401 - super heck yes

I love the JK axles, no hate from me. I'm wishing a set would land in my lap. Have you considered a turbo or blower setup? I read about NC's emissions laws. No good.

I found the emission laws pretty easy to deal with; same year or newer replacement engine from the same category of vehicle... which is a Light Truck, in North Carolina.

Huh.. I did a quick google search on some board and they were saying that they would execute you with plastic silverware if you did so much as use an aftermarket oil filter. I guess that's the accuracy of the internet for you.

In that case, keep the 4.0 engine stock or go LS. Any other choice is just silly.
