I keep the oil cap off during the winter so the mice can have a safe place to nest.

Thanks! But I use the stock cap when I run it. I'm looking for a chrome or aluminum cap.

Here's mine ... LOL

Frame: '77 CJ7 with SBC motor mounts and driveshaft loop










Hoods: CJ7's unknown years




Grille with Lights: CJ7 unknown year




Other Parts so Far(no pics yet)
T-18b 4-speed tranny with granny low (might trade it for a SM465)

Dana 20 TC

Advanced Adapters SBC adapter for the T-18

Plans
SBC with TBI (I decided to abandon the Ford 5.0 since the frame is already set up for the Chevy and the T-18 has the SBC adapter)

Dana 60 front (thinking 35 spline with kingpins)

Dana 60 or 14 Bolt rear (still just thinking) :lol:

NP203 range box to double the Dana 20

Home brew four-link suspension with either coil-overs or air shocks

Not sure on the tub ... if I can find a cheap steel tub, I'll probably go that way, but I might consider a fiberglass

Goodbye garage! 8)

wow a driveshaft hoop! I entertained the idea for a few seconds but gave it up considering it would get destroyed in the first 50 feet off road.
That frame looks to be in pretty good shape....Are those added gussets on the shock towers?

Yep.. I think I'd lose the DS hoop. Especially if you're gonna see any rocks while wheeling. I'd hate to see that thing snag a rock and get jammed backward into the driveshaft.. if you're gonna go with 1 ton axles, just make sure to use a tough driveshaft (like a 1350 or 1410) and tough TC output shaft/yokes. Looks like a fun project though. Have fun and post lots of pics along the way.

LOL ... that's just the way the frame came, guys. The hoop is definitely going away and I'll probably be running HAD shafts so they'll be fine.

I think it was a mudder. The former owner had a supercharged SBC in it.

Here's SSDutch - a '64 CJ6 with 4.3 Chevy, T18, Powerloks at both ends, custom 'cage, TJ belts, onboard air etc.....

The trailer is a '50 Bantam Jeep trailer:



In the dunes:


Currently she's getting an all new dash, mostly to accomodate a heater installation (current dash setup blocks the defrost duct):


After that it's onto getting the OE Fuel Injection back on the engine.

THanks...I'm having fun building it.

Actually the wheels aren't stock. They're 7" $tockton Wheel$ "Heavy Duty Off Road" Wheel$.

But that you thought they were helps me justify the cost as it's what I was going for - stock look but wider.
