Great idea!! No better tribute that I can think of to a veteran and a father. Not to mention its gonna look very slick. Always wanted to do this to my jeep, even though its a CJ7. Post pics of the final result!
->'79 CJ7 (VIN Says it's a 5, wheelbase says otherwise), 6 inches of spring lift, awaiting an MC2100 on a teamrushed MSD'd 258
-->350 time. '95 block SBC, stroked to 383, dremeled heads and big 'ol intake, maybe a Holley 750 CFM, not sure yet
--->"Safety? Buy a Volvo. Never buy a CJ, or a Chrysler Jeep knock off, for safety, fuel mileage, reliability, handling, ride, comfort, aerodynamics, quietness, convience, stability, low maintenance cost, performance, or ease of use. The only reason to buy a CJ is because you are absolutely, incurably nuts." -OldTexas
