Got this 86 CJ7 at the shop here, and decided to upgrade everything. Changed the old motor out with a newer 06 4.0l, trans, and 241 transfer case. Updated all the wiring with 06 tj wiring and computer. Installed Dana 44 front and rear, 4 linked. Built tube fenders, front stinger/winch, rear tube fenders. Building a new gas tank behind the seat for a tj fuel pump. New AutoMeter gauges, Mastercraft seats, and the list goes on.
Very Nice! I would like to know what all you did to get that suspension set up on a cj. Did you buy a kit for a TJ and modify it, or fab the whole thing? How does it handle on the street? This is something I would consider for my 84. A good write up would be cool. Again, looks great.
1984 CJ-7, 4" Trailmaster, 31's. Future plans include complete rebuild with SBC 350, Dana 44 front, Ford 9 inch rear, and SOA with highsteer.
Full Traction 4" long arm kit for a TJ. It wasn't too bad. I hacked the chit out of the frame mounts, but used almost everything from the kit. By using the long arms provided, they stretched the wheel base about 6 inches. I dont know if I would do it the same a second time around though.
