Wow, I just took a look at your '83 CJ7 pic. If I had a view like that at my house, I would sit in the garage and work on jeeps all day!

Are you going to rebuild any of the diffs or tranny? The tub looks to be in good shape. It will make a straight final product.

i have been using zerorust to coat and will use it on the frame aswell. The plan is to rebuild the tranny and probably the diffs aswell. The tub is one of the main reasons i bought this one over the others, because i knew what i had right away.

The veiw here is great its very calming to looks at that while working, we actually just moved here last month. i dont know if you can see it in that pic but theres a lake down there.

thanks for the comments

I realize this is a little off topic, but, On the mantel in the middle there appeares to be a 50 cal round, what are the ones to the right and left?

It looks like you're off to a good start. Looks good keep the pics coming.

Hey j-j, good luck with your project!

What are your plans, are you keeping it original? And something else, the windshield in the first picture is from a CJ-3A, not a CJ-2A.

thanks, thats another reason i got it, saves me a little work, and thanks for the link

The plan so far it to keep it stock looking as much as i can, but with the vortec and sm465 and not the original engine, it wont be all original so it will also be for mild weekend trail use

The spare tire in the first photo seems to be an oversized so expect some damage or twists in the tub at the area of the tire holder.
