this is one of the nicest build threads on the forum. I was drawn into this thread first because of the great metal patch information early in the thread, but wow the wealth of knowledge here is overwhelming!

Great job

Mike, I was looking thru your beginning pages but couldn't find, but do you have any shots of your exhaust down pipes? Did you buy them somewhere or made them up? Also did you go with 2.5" pipe and did you use an X pipe or H pipe? Lastly who's mufflers did you go with? Thanks

I don't know, I have a feeling your project is going to be quite the head turner. Thanks for the kind words.

Thank you. What's wrong with my license plate? You know it adds ten horse power.

You did an awesome job from start to finish on this project. AAA+++
I did hear one of the rears rattle on the bumper when I had to brake pretty hard for a light but didn't notice anything during normal driving. I though about adding a small piece of foam to the pin to add resistance so they don't swing freely. Either that or a small piece of black foam to the bumper so they had a cushion if they did hit.

I picked up the D-Rings from Morris4x4 as they were by far the lowest priced at $30 for a pair.

Thanks for the comments.

I think the engine is dripping- yeah- right there. You may need to pull the front clip, drop the axle, remover the seats, lube the sliders and open that 5.0 up for an inspection!
It's not quite done yet. I still have to install my driving lights and finish the wiring to those. I need to finish up the wiring harnesses going to the stereo amps and I also need to work out some interior lighting. I also still need to install the full soft top.

I haven't begun to digest the feast of information in this thread. My only regret is I didn't tune in earlier!!

Your fabrication, documentation, attention to detail, and ability to follow a concept thru to completion has been a pleasure to read and learn from.

I hope you take that beauty out and enjoy it, because you sir have earned it.

Matt
Thank you very much for your comments. I know jumping into a thread with 100 pages is a bit much to take in all at once. I catch myself going back to look for something only to catch myself an hour later still reading the old posts. It has been a long and fun ride for sure.

Thank you. I've always tried to make it as educational as possible. I know I've learned a lot of things along the way.

Also, thank you to all of you that have given the thread a 5 star rating!

Thanks Jim. I'm looking forward to finishing off the smaller details over the winter. Thanks again for all your help with the modified spring hangers, shims and U-bolts.

Ha, I think your 4.56's would take me off the line but I'm pretty sure I'd come by at the higher speeds. It wasn't really built to drag race though.

I had the exhaust custom made at a little exhaust shop in central MI back in 1996-97. You can see some pictures of just the exhaust here. Since it is a true dual we went with 2.25" to try and keep enough back pressure to help with the low end torque. They also left out the X/H pipe because it was easier on them. It also made it so I could take the two sides on and off without having to cut anything apart. The mufflers are stainless Flowmaster series 40.

Mike... It is one of the nicest CJ-7's I have ever seen. You went above and beyond, especially with the Ford engine. I love the way your engine compartment looks!! Would love to spend some time in person to take it all in and go for a ride!

Ditto Boom.

I can't believe your done and driving that beast! Seems like yesterday you were wrinking your fingers in the wet sand! I am in love with the louvers!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Boom, take a 3/4" or 7/8" o-ring (or two) and put it over the clevis screw so it fits between the D-ring and clevis side. Provided the D-ring is a thick one that takes up most of the space between the holes in the clevis, that is.

Ditto on the awesome job. I'm still reading thru all the pages. I like that the entire body is encapsulated with POR-15. I was only going to do the bottom but now I'm rethinking things.

I've been following this thread for a while, but I needed to comment: That engine looks like it was made to go there.
