At first glance, it looks like they made the front and rear doors interchangable, but then hinges are in different places? Seems done that way to accomodate 1/2 doors. Certaintly does NOT look like a JK with a CJ front clip.

AMC did make a 4-door CJ-6, but it was only for export.

Very cool!......but that 3" body lift detracts from all the work that appears to have been put into it and "cheapens" the appearance (to me any way)......and I'm not a big proponent of "bling" hinges, wheels etc. on a Jeep....

But an awesome rig none the less!........Cummins powered....

Now to convince the wife to get rid of the minivan for one of those.....hmmmmm.

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.
:-D

I hate to say it, but I don't like it. I think it's ugly. Looks like a piece of good work, however.

I can agree. Its a great work of art but I think its the tires and rims that do it. If you put some meatier off road tires on there with some 15x12 wagon wheels like 38s it would looks great!

Ditto. My first thought was that I don't like the wheels which appear to be larger than 15".

But, yes, it would appear that someone did put some time and money into the project. It's generally tastefully done. Hopefully the inside and the details are as well done as the outside.

Agree about the wheels, but that's a bad arse ride otherwise.

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

Take the 3" BL off, different wheels (smaller and black imo), bigger tires. That would make it so much cooler, but its still pretty cool

I would agree that the 3" body lift detracts from it...overall I think it has too much lift and I think that draws extra attention to the tire/wheel package. IIRC it has a 3" body lift, 4" RC springs, and is SOA. Couldn't get a good look at the inside...the owner wasn't around and I don't touch other people's rigs unless I'm invited to do so, especially not at a show. The overall coolness and craftsmanship is undeniable.

wow.. that's pretty wild!.. personally i think i would gone more suspension lift, less body lift. HA, bet that hard top was 'fun' to fab, probally wasn't too hard (i'd be very curious to know).... Deffinitly curious to see the interior.. and to see a break down of build up costs~hmmmm =)

Deffinitely an impressive cj!

I saw that there. He must have just finished the swap. He had it soa with stock axles and the stock little driveshafts. The tub was amazing.
