Next on the list are:
Angle up the amc 20 and get a cv driveshaft.
4:1 gear in my Dana 300

Both would be great improvement.
Just curious but why not go to a ford 9" Much stronger axle and the housing is a bit over 2" shorter so you can run a longer drive shaft.

Why? I will only ever run 33s. I have a 258 and I don't beat on it at all. It's a street jeep that I crawl around the woods with. Plus, it now has one piece axle shafts. It also had a LSD and 4.10s. I don't think the cost of going with a ford 9 inch is worth it for me. There is a ton of other stuff I would rather spend the money on.

I hear you on the cost, I am fixing to shell out 660.00 for a narrowing jig so I can start making my own housings, been needing one for years finally going to get it.

It is easy to get a pile of money buried in a jeep, I am over 22,000.00 into mine and it hasn't even run yet.

I've done a bunch of work to it since I posted before. All new fuel lines, hoses, and vent lines. MC 2100 Carb. Header, cat delete, and flowmaster. I have a new front bumper to put on and there is the stock CJ tow bar on the back now. I think that is all I have done, but the carb and fuel line work has made a big difference.



My buddy just bought this Mog. He was a jeeper and had a CJ-5, but this thing is nuts. Portal axles and 44 inch military tires. It even has a port in the roof for a machine gunner!

Nice job and I love mogs. Don't they get up to the crazy speed of 50mph? Read they are very fast tractors.

Yup, he said exactly that! It's a tractor that drives on the street, that tops out at 50mph. It is cool though. PITA to get in it. I should have parked the jeep next to it. The thing is pretty tall.

Just put on a new bumper, a CB speaker, and did some other little stuff. I think it turned out well.

Awesome build! I like the oem style you went with, keeping it original looking.

Just curious. How well do that large of tires do on the stock 15x7 wheels?

Your Jeep looks good diddy. I have that same front bumper on mine and a similar one for the back.

I thought they were 15x8. The tires fit fine. I've never had a problem at all, even with airing down in the woods.

Do you have a tire carrier also? I was going to get just the basic rear bumper, but the tire is too big for it to fit. I would need the tire carrier also, and I just didn't want to get one yet. I didn't feel like re-painting the rear of the tub again after taking off the stock tire carrier.
