I am going to restore/wheel it...

I am going to go hog wild on the rubi and had to have a good tow rig... what else should tow a jeep? A JEEP TRUCK....

Seriously... I will be doing engine and drive train work first... Lift it the right height second... then restore the body and paint it gun metal gray. Then see what I want to do... its just bad ***... A 40 year old rig with no rust and a big strong V8 with some of the best torque you can find.

Matt,

Any help I can be, just let me know. If you scrap it... let me know... I will give you 200 bucks for those old tires on there... haha...

Matt,

I am going to a jeep only salvage yard on Saturday.

What do you want to spend? and do you have money?

If I see a TJ hood and window frame do you want me to pick them up?

and if so... how much for each are you willing to go?

I know the hood new is like 329 and windshield frame for almost 500 bucks..

I also will begin practicing on panel welding... I have a few things I want to touch up on the Gladiator

I'm willing to spend whatever it takes to get it done, I'd rather go used to keep prices down, but I'll do what it takes. Nothing needs to be perfect, it'll be back on the rocks as soon as it's driveable so I'm just gonna get it back together

I've got the money to fix it

If you find anything that would be great.

Is that the one in Fontana, and if it wouldn't be too much trouble could you see what the dana 44 are priced around. I won't be putting one in until I get back from Iraq again next fall, but I want to get an Idea of what i'm looking at spending. My inlaws are in Fullerton so I am up that way occasionally.
Thanks,
Jason

Jeff, are you going to put a tranny with an OD in it? Is it the 327 with the exhaust going around the front?

Locked... YES and YES...

Torque monster

I don't think I will be doing headers or anything like that... just a dual exhaust. It has the 4 barrel and a three speed... so a T18 4 sp will probably go in there...

Drove it for the first time last night... it was awesome... I could almost hear the banjo music.

Matt... let me know if anything changed. Going to the salvage yard in the morning.
