I guess it could be a “bobbed” TJ-8…….
Makes sense. I just was looking at the door design.

Very nice. Have you planned how the rear seat(s) will be arranged? The M170 (what the CJ6 was based on) could be set up so the rear passengers sat on cushions attached to the fenderwells facing each other. Lots of seating with nothing to remove in order to use the whole rear floor, on the other hand it also had no roll bar or seatbelts, so that would have to be addressed.

Great job! Looks like you are moving along pretty quick. I looked at a post yesterday where a guy stretched a YJ and it took him like 4 months to get what you have done so far. Good luck! And gonna crawl this one too.

Hey Ziptie,

I noticed in your Wheel'n pics that your signal lights on the front fenders are relocated under/inside the fenders themselves--seeing as you have substantially trimmed/eliminated your fender flares. How did you do this? Are they the OEM siganl lights remounted or are they aftermarket products? Thanks.

I've always liked the Spyderlocks as well...will be interested in seeing this mounted and rolling and you feedback on how you like them...

Nice build!

I used the factory turns attached w/ zip ties. I then modified them more and mounted LED’s in grill and wheel well.

Fish Plating:
I welded it all up then fish plated it. I used some extended plates so I could mount the body mounts cleaner.

Raising the body mounts 1”:
I installed a 1" body lift for the flat skid and the 35's. I decided to cut the body mounts off under the doors and re-weld them without the 1" BL pucks. This will help my ground clearance.

Upper rear control arm mounts:
Mine are starting to crack, so I beefed them up. I think this is a common problem with a short arm lift. I tried to get a good shot of the crack but my camera was not doing it, first picture.

Awesome job so far- I can't wait to see it with the wheels all mounted up.

As for painting the rims...I think you should keep them the way they are now.

Some more weld pictures with better light, they are less chunky in real life…
