Alright... I am headed to Chattanooga in the AM to pick up the JK44 for the rear of DD. I am also waiting on a call back on a set of 5 JK Moabs from a 2012. If so it will be a good weekend.

Then I need to find 3 more good 37x12.5017 old school MTRs.

Me to,

I am still looking into more of a Jeep like this for the Dumpster project. Or more like its grown up version as the Spider LJ sits now.

Lo2ay added this picture just after he installed the 1.25 BL. I love the look, As I do the finished project. So, torn between what I want out of this Jeep.

Dumpster will be just a bit longer ofcourse and have a seperate bed and cab.

I know this is from a few pages back but I was watching Muscle Cars on Spike today and the used www.blastfromthepasttn.com to prime a 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass body. It looked kind of like powder coat. They are in LeBanon TN not sure how far that is away from you but maybe something to check out.

D44 is in the truck, Wilson Offroad is a great shop. Wish there was a shop like that closer to Nashville. Awesome dude. Thanks Travis for the deal on a 10k mile axle.

Picture of the JK44

Soooo clean. New brake calipers .

Need to order a simple axle swap from ruffstuff. Then i can figure out axle placement and start on the rear frame and bed mounts.
