KJ's CJ5 to CJ6 conversion
Hi there thought I would introduce my build I will be streaching my CJ5 20" to make my own CJ6. The reason I want some extra room for gear and the Grandboys. And really like the look of a CJ6. Now for some meat of the build and first decision engine. The 304 is junk not a option. I have other options in the garage, 1st one I have a is a throttle body 350 with a 700r 4x4 tranny and transver case very low miles. The 2nd one is a 96 4.0 with 5 speed and transver case it only has 96,000 miles. I will begging to a 8.8 in the rear because I scored at my local pick a part Thursday. I was able to pick up 2 8.8s one a D4 code- limited slip 3.73 and the other D2 code limited slip 4.10 $150 each. But best of all a Rustys Offroad YJ lift kit with Rustys RX 300 bypass shocks. The YJ had been rolled over pretty hard. Next decision will be what front end to run. The CJ will be used as Daily Driver / Trail Adventure rig. Taking trail rides and old school weekend tent camping. So as I have been away from Jeeps for a while will be looking for advice and input. Will post a couple of pics of the CJ in next post.
