Yes, it is still in perfect working order. It is a pleasure to drive with only 50k miles on it. The leaf spring conversion was a great improvement IMO.

Hi, Great job on this rig. I am truly inspired by this build. I have a 64 gladiator and have a question, what year GM steering column did you use for this modification. Thanks for the feed back. welderdude

I used a 94 Chevy Suburban or Truck.

Thanks for your kind words friend.

Sorry I have not been providing any updates for a long time. I have been completely bed ridden and buried in pain.

Hang in there. I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say we would like to be able to make you smile like you make us smile when you post pics of this project and share with us the progress being made.

Never give up! Easy for me to say I know but take some small measure of satisfaction in knowing there are smiles on our faces when we read your posts.

This! It's immensely satisfying watching this build come together.
I know I will never rebuild my Cherokee to the level yours is, but your build has given me great insight in what I can do/use to bring it together. I thank you very much for sharing this build with all of us, and I hope you start to feel a bit better to start working on your Jeep again. Take care keep strong, and know you have a forum of moral support here to keep you going.

Some pictures showing the clearance between the front fenders and the 41" IROKs. By the way, all the body parts are only bolted temporarily in these photos until my new black bolts arrive. Black bolts will add that little bit of extra style and finish to the entire project.

I have a 68 jeep gladiator and I am wondering where I can find a 4 inch lift for it. Any suggestions?

Some photos of the carpet being installed over the Dynamat.










The final install of the hydroboost brakes, Corvette disc/disc master cylinder, steering column bracket, 6.0L DBW fuel pedal and wiper motor/linkage are all installed for the final time. They will be brushed with various colors of POR15 products right in place. Next, will be the Vintage Air system, dash, steering column and seats. Then the center console can be built to contain dual Optima batteries, ECM, fuse panels, DBW module, relays and stereo amp. And the front part of the center console will hold the custom made automatic shifter and t-case shifters.

This design will make it possible to keep the underside of the dash and engine bay uncluttered.

More to come as I am able.

Definitely subscribed, i can not wait to see more progress. I think i like all the progress more than seeing it all done, just all the behind the scene customization!

Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement friends. I tell ya, if it weren't for close friends and a terrific wife to help with all the stuff that I used to be able to do myself, my designs and this project would never get done. I know I keep saying it, but I truly am thankful. And in my situation, I am also thankful to have something to focus on and keep my spirits up.

My windshield washer fluid heater arrived a few days ago. Looks like a very nice, high quality unit. I still worry that it will break the glass on icy mornings, but they make great claims that it won't. It surprises me that the power cables are so big. I didn't expect that.
