Nice job Pathkiller! You ought to get many years use out of that. Going to be a D.D.? Engine sounds great too.

Thanks. It'll share DD responsibility with my Scrambler, which is my current DD. But I need to do some things to the Scrambler, so it'll be nice to have the CJ5 to rely on while the Scram's in the garage. Nothing too serious with the CJ8, it definitely won't be another full frame off, but I need to address some minor rust issues and then paint it. Fortunately it has a great drivetrain (a still-new fuel injected 4.6L stroker and AX-15/D300) so I won't need to do anything mechanical to it at all. I'm thinking about returning it to stock-ish height and ditching the 33" tires for 31's, returning it to a more original look.

Latest pics from today. Got the wheels painted (Crager 69 Delux) and the tires mounted (Treadwright retreads 235x85-16).

any overheating? Brake-wise I mean, since it's a solid face wheel...

I'm considering this wheel on my LJ for that J8 look (they come in black). Please let me know, thanks!!

Looks fantastic man! Get rid of that upper radiator hose! It sticks out like a sore thumb in that engine compartment.

Why? It runs at 195 degrees and has never overheated. It hasn't had a fan shroud in the 23 years I've owned it, I see no reason to add one now.

The rad hose was temporary, it has new hoses now, but thanks for pointing out how ugly it was.

No. I would possibly worry about brake overheating on a race car, but not on a Jeep.

The wheels came in black and I painted them white. They only come in black.
