Updated the fender flares... they turned out super. I used a set of single trailer fenders for the rears, and used a tandem axle trailer fender for the fronts. I cut it in half for the front fenders. Bought a planishing machine to form the front fender fronts and used it to hammer the outer edge to flare the fenders out so they would have the same shape of the CJ original fenders. Then... camo'd em.
I'm liking the camo. Looks like the desert version of mine! I finally got on the trail for a maiden voyage, a week and a half ago.
Just added a few more goodies including the Congo Cage for loading my kayak and surfboards. Not convinced I like having what looks like a box spring mattress bolted to the top of my CJ. But it does simplify my trips to the water. So its going to have to stay on till hard top season.
There are some amazing jeeps in here folks! lovin every one.
Here's a few pics of mine. picking up a 360 this weekend, still deciding on what to stick between it and the t-case (pretty sure i have a t4 in it atm)
currently has a 231 v6. looks even fire from the dist. not bad, but has a few rough edges, and i miss the sound of a v8...and getting the motor for a decent price. so that will probably be my winter project.
Just added fender flares. The rear are made out of single axle trailer fenders and the fronts are a tandem axle trailer fender cut in half. They work really well. I was trying to keep the fenders similar to the trailer and CJ5 style.
It sure is fun to have a jeep like this
My 84 CJ 5.7. Navy grey, 355 SBC, 33 x 12.5 x 15, 3:55 gears, Auburn locker, custom built nose gear, and tire rack. Recovery equip, 30' chain, 50' snap strap, 48" high lift jack and chain saw. Tow bar for behind the motorhome. The only thing I have used so far is the chain saw (tree was in the way). My motto is, If something breaks shame on me, it wont happen to that part again.
