I havnt been checking up on thing in a while and I say the WILLYS is looking great . Seeing it on the go is awsome. You will have to bring it up to Rocks & Valleys and wheel it with my WILLYS. We are working on the park most weekends and for a little help with building some wheeling can be done , or wait till spring for the opening.

Thanks!

I need to have my tow rig fixed and then I can bring it up, that will probably be spring. I can't drive it up there. If I knew FI I could do it myself

I just put the tarp on WIth the THULE load bars in place... and it FITS!

That makes me happy.

I also picked up a better tongue lock, and that mixed with it being chained to the tree should make it difficult enough to take no one will.

I just read all 12 pages and that makes me want to find an old flat fender to build with my dad. I like the look of it all black and that was a really good choice on the skinny tires.
I loved the side pipes you had on there too.
The hard tops for those things are so ugly that they are cool. I can wait to see where you go with this thing. Great build.

Picked up this nice little D30 for the front a few weeks ago... mostly new parts, VERY clean $50 and the correct gearing with 11" brakes



I have been pretty sick for a couple weeks and have not had time to do the D30 swap. Adam came over today to help me throw it under and hopefully prep for the winch that should be arriving Tuesday (and hopefully can find time to mount it for Snowfari)

Got most of it done today, but had to order brake lines and bead glue. Also need to locate a longer (not drop) pitman arm to make use of my new found turning radius.








The width is a nice match with the 2" wheel spacers on the rear. It puts the tires out just enough to protect the body.

We have to break down all my tires and transfer 3 of them to wheels that have safety beads and use bead glue on them. The 4th needs just broken down and bead glue put on, then I need to calibrate my tire deflators and put together spare parts and a tool kit to take.

Tomorrow my brake lines should be in, and we can install the new lines and bleed the system.

While underneath today Adam discovered my rear u-joint is toast, and we have to make up a new front shaft because the D30 uses a large u-joint compared to the flatties original one.

I hate last minute wrenching for a wheeling trip. Even more so when we are not positive how we are getting it there :sonicjay:

More from today....

If they are that expensive and prone to going bad, I will try to figure out a more reliable way.

Some more pics from today... Adam convinced me to check the wheelbearings and I am kind of glad I did now, the drivers side wheel seal was shot, so tomorrow some new seals should be arriving, and I am going to replace that bearing just for peace of mind.

All that is left for now:

Replace rear u-joint (1/8" of play)
Finish installing new brake lines and bleed
install new wheel seals, grease whel bearings, and re-assemble.

Install winch and winchplate maybe.... if the winch arrives.

I should be able to air down sufficiently now. Got some different wheels from Adam and he switched the tires to them for me. These have a safety bead and I also used bead glue to help eliminate leaks when aired down. The slightly wider rims really changed the look of it (other then the rusty white paint)

New Stance! Hope the winch makes it, it is out for delivery right now :naughty:

CJ2A is mobile and ready to go... if the winch comes today I may just get it on

Need to make a bearing adjustment and minor brake adjustment I think... but I KNOW i just set a world record changing a wheel cylinder... 30 mins from wheel on to changed cyl and wheel back on... 1 hour includes bleeding the brakes by myself and driving around testing and taking pics.

Does sweet doughnuts with it's new found turning radius... weird it turns sharper one way then the other, need to check steering stops.

Thanks, I have ton's like this, I do a bunch of amateur digital photog stuff. My whole living room is Jeep themed, I ran out of places for pictures so now I have one of those Kodak digital frames on the DVD rack that cycles through all the ones I couldn't fit
