Very cool! What color are you going to paint it? To match?

I'll drive the Willys around for a bit, before I decide on the springs though. Who knows, maybe the extra weight of the cage and the more comfortable suspension seats will be enough to make the ride smooth. I'd rather not put to much money into this, we'll see It's my daily driver though.
You won't regret deavers. I can promise you that.

yea, I'll probably just spray it the same green as the rest of the jeep. Black might look good though.

I've heard real good things about their springs. We'll see.

I was getting there lol......Hey aw, not sure if you remember that clunk that I was trying to chase down but I think I found it......I believe it's my rear driveshaft.....it has a considerable amount of play (not in the ujoints but the output itself) in it and i think that everytie the clutch is engaged after being under a fair amount of torque the rear driveshaft kind of "wraps" itself....if that makes any sense.....I have a detroit in the rear, is this a typical thing or is there truly something wrong? any help would be appreciated.~Chris

There is play in the driveshaft it self? like on the slipyoke?
Or the play is in the rear end? Some play the rear end is normal

I'm the rear end. I am getting a clunk when the clutch is engaged and I believe it's coming from the rear driveshaft "wrapping" itself. I have a Detroit in the rear is this normal? I may pull the rear driveshaft tomorrow morning and see if the clunk goes away

That's excessive, with the wheels on the ground there shouldn't be a whole lot of slop in the driveshaft 1/8 of a turn would be a lot.

Talked to Blaine on the phone and he said what I'm describing is possibly a throw out bearing? Going to start by pulling each driveshaft one by one and see if I can pinpoint it tomorrow. Will report back. When I remove the rear driveshaft will I lose any fluid?

You still have a slip yoke. I'd say just disconnect it from the rear end and see how much slop you have on the rear end yoke. Turn it by hand.

Throwout bearing would screech or squeel and it would go away when you step on the clutch, unless it's totally trashed. It still wouldn't clunk
