Windknot,

I am not sure at this point what parts ill have, but whatever I have extra your welcome to as well, I guess we will just need to wait and see what you need.

Also, I really like the stance of your jeep. DO you have a prior build thread I could peruse?

Best-Regards,
Kevin

There really isn't too much to tell about the Jeep except that it has reversed shackles up front and a 2 inch shackle lift. You can get into trouble with shackle lifts if you're not careful; the longer the shackle I believe the more susceptible it is to side pressures. A spring lift probably is better. These will be some of my upcoming considerations.

I like reversed shackles for where I drive. I'm going anywhere from sand to volleyball sized rocks in my trips and I believe the reversed shackles give a more comfortable, forgiving ride. There ARE drawbacks though. I'd say the biggest is that the Jeep will nose dive during hard braking. If your Jeep is your commuter for work, that might not be a good thing.

The tires are 31s. So I'm really not lifted very high. It does just fine for me though. It's also a narrow track, so that may make it appear taller than it is.



For me I feel I have more than enough ground clearance. But again, I don't do boulders much. (At least not on purpose!) Forest and desert trails and roads, finding ghost towns and Indian ruins are what I do. I'm no Speed Racer, that's for sure.



Hope that answers.

Let me know, my friend.

Not to shag your pride, but many of us have spare parts we'll likely never use. I put a wooden Grant steering wheel on, and the black rubber wheel I bought a week before this one sits in the box. TAKE IT!
POST UP WHAT YOU NEED.
I've got the brake line from the prop valve to the Pass/front wheel. TAKE IT!
Good used tail lights (went NOS) TAKE 'EM!
This isn't charity, this is us SHARING. We do that pretty darn well around here. If you need something, let us know & PM ONLY that person w/your address. Maybe get a UPS box?
You know we're all dying to help out, any way we can. And this is the only way I know. I wanna see it finished, w/a few of my parts that I'm just tripping over. Plus we can write it off on our taxes! (Man, I always gotta go deviant in the end!).
God Bless going forward
BTW, the projects' Ram-Rod is leaning on the front bumper. He's the one who INSISTS we keep it Loden Green Metallic (L7). All paint charts say L7 wasn't available in '79, and the PO was a great bud, so I know he didn't paint it. And I know he's thinking "Enjoy it now Old Man, 'cuz 7 years from now, this sucker is MINE! Yeah, when I get my license you'd better sleep w/1 eye open".

Thanx WSS. I'd be willing to bet that amongst us, we have enough spares laying around to build a complete CJ. If everybody were to load their spares, meet in the middle of the country, we'd have it together in a weekend!

And so it begins!



It's a start!

Rain is expected all day today and tomorrow, so realistically it looks like Monday is THE day!

Windknot is located in one the most beautiful areas on this planet. Sedona, Jerome, Williams, Verde Valley, The Grand Canyon, etc.. The wheeling is unreal, cameras are a must. A CJ get together to bring parts would be awesome I think. Maybe Williams or Sedona? I'm in if we do it. It's about 8/9hrs from me.

"It's about 8/9hrs from me" =WSS
For me it's 34-36 hours per Mapquest. Maybe I'll ship the parts and hop a Chopper out since my CJ isn't complete yet. WAY behind schedule. W-Knot will have his finished before me. And all I need is paint & Wiring!
My cruise control is reaching down, and twisting the idle up to just below the rev limiter! Maybe I'll bring some "Thanksgiving Meth"(tm), like the Mayflower people cooked. Should cut my time down to 20 hours. I'm going to need a head count to know how many pounds to bring. 50# ought to do it, no?

Hah, I just had 2 dumpsters dropped off at my Barn. One for all the steel jeep parts and one for trash.

I decided to just get rid of all the parts for projects I've been saving. Running out of years to complete them all.

Looking forward to this! Good luck...and start listing the parts you know you're going to need. If somebody doesn't have them -- I'd be happy to chip in to get them! Call it Jeepforum/Karma insurance!

Cheers,
Dylan

Sorry to hear about your fire! Bill shared some pictures with me by text that must be from another post. Looks like you have some work ahead, but on the flip side its a chance to build it "bigger and better" than last time.
