my 84 cj7 build.....lots of pics

this is what my jeep looked like last year when i got it...moper efi on a new 4.2, currie build ford 9" 4:11 gears, 4" suspension lift and 33's


after about 2 months i put some lift shackles and some 35's on it and matched the dana 30 with a set of 4:10's


as it sits today


i tore it down do to all this



and that the fact that the frame is bent a few inch's behind the steering box and all the way to the front

i picked up another frame last week that is in excelent condition minus the back 2" of the frame


my plans are to cut this out anyway......im extending my wheel base in the rear and im going to cut the frame off at the top of the rear hump in the frame and go with box tubing all the way out the back and put the shackle all the way on the back......similar to the btf rear stretch kit they sell just a whole lot stronger......im gonna add extra bracing and what not where it is needed and make a set of boat side armor rockers and comp cut rear fenders......its gonna be on a custom dana 44 from and ford 9" rear with a 64" wms to wms on both axles but keep the stock spring width's right on the frame where they should be......after these axles break i have a set of 60's im buiding for it but prob wont be done till next year

i spent the day cutting off all the not needed brackets off the frame
before


after


just for fun i put my muddin tires next to the jeep


but it will have 38's for street and trail use those boggers are 39.5's and will be mud only use

so what you guys think of the jeep and my plan?......the frame will be done some time this week and back to a rolling frame hopefully by next weekend

sterling is awesome I would understand that and at least you will have less clearance problems with the 60.

here is a back of the back of the frame almost done.....they just need to put the fish plates on it... when i get it back i will measure out the new mounts for the rear springs and build a set of new rear mounts....



the front is plated up and moved the rough country shackle reversal kit all the way to the front and welded it on too


cut the front cross member out and replacing it with complete plate across the top so i can move the steering box forward some more and give the frame more strength.....plus a nice flat piece for the winch

the frame should be done early this week and my axles should have there new gears in them by this weekend and i will start putting it back together here this weekend
