Missouri jeep builds
I want to see what everybody has done to their jeeps and hear about it.
I'm on the other side of the state from you, near Hannibal. It's nice to see and hear from members close by. As you asked though, I have a 1985 CJ7 that I bought several years ago and like many it had a serious case of rust and needed to tuning. That all led to a complete frame off, and I mean everything! I decided the 258 needed some attention but soon talked myself into a 1992 Ford 5.0 that came from a Mustang. Well with that extra power I felt like the drivetrain needed to be updated so I adapted the Ford T-18 to the Dana 300, this is a T-18 with the low first gear. Then the axles, both Currie 9". I bought the housing and sourced the insides to save a little money. 4:10s, front True Trac and rear Detroit locker. I sandblasted the frame, had it hot dipped galvanized then painted over that with frame paint. Went with a YJ tub that I painted O.D. green. Full 6 pt. roll cage tied to the frame. Not quite done yet but am sure looking forward to it. Here's my build thread here on the forum http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/ji...build-1093702/

97 TJ 4.3 Vortec swap
Here is mine, started out as a 4cyl stocker. After lift and 35's the 4cyl called it quits. I wanted something cheap and readily available for parts, and a bit different then most. So, I went with a 1998 Chevy 4.3 Vortec with a 4l60E behind it. It has a custom wire harness from Howellefi.com, motor mounts from advance adapters, Champion race radiator with newly installed electric fan, the computer was tuned and egr delete by lt1swap.com, complete dash in Equuis 8000 series gauges, Holley high pressure in line fuel pump(on a kill switch), and many other mods too!
That is great news, I looked up their website, but I'm guessing it's not updated, because it says the kits are coming... Did he do it himself or a local shop, or did he send it to them in CA?
