I am no fan of the CJ6 but this looks good to me, probably because the proportion seems better than the 6. Still following along waiting for more updates

thanks for all the feedback, it helps motivate me to complete this build.

unfortunately i ran out of acetylene right away tonight so i only got the frame shored up. though i did get the catalog to order the new gauges.

I think it's cool! You work fast. Trying to figure out your rear suspension?? It isn't installed yet, is it? Or are my eyes bad?

Would you mind showing how you did the frame work too? I'd love to see pics, know how you aligned everything, what kind of welds, etc. You'd be teaching me the welding/fabbing skills, only without the pay!!

ya'll keep using the word redneck like it's a bad thing?

i pulled the body back off to finish welding the frame and body mounts. i'm going to go ahead and set the pinion angles and build the drive shafts while the tub is off.
