Got the suspension all done at like 2 in the morning. Lol but it came out amazing and rides great. Spent forever doing the math and putting dimensions into the 4 link calculator and I think I got everything just the way I wanted it. Can't find anything wrong with it yet. Need to box and brace the brackets and run my exhaust.
Here soon, I will be able to post here.... I rolled drove out my finished CJ7 today. I missed her so over the years though she's been neglected for 9 years, my love for her has never diminished, silently waiting in a cluttered corner, covered under piles of jet ski covers- boxes- and whatever else needed a place to be layed. She was first striped to the bone, had her legs tore right out from under her, then given a fresh coat of color to her axles and frame after some cancer was discovered and removed from her rear horns. I spent many hours cutting away the entire cancer that covered her behind, (making sure to leave none),away replacing them with anew, and painted her bottom black to clean her up a bit for the next bout, I then spent several days long ago- giving her a new heart from which to live a new life, stronger and faster than ever before, I made her heart a .040 over with a mild cam 2150 Motocraft HEI split dual headman headers. With the new heart and body sitting on a beefed up frame that her master had worked so hard, she sat patiently awaiting a new colored covering to show off around town, she lay await for 9 long years in that cluttered corner, for her driver had found a new love and this old one was left to feel abandoned. Then one day early in the spring of 013, I declared to return to my old love as she had been the most patient of things waiting silently in that corner. The now wife and I discussed buying a new horse because 1 of our 2 needed some days to rest as it's life is seen nearing it's end without some major attention, but in the back of my mind I could never forget one of my truest loves that lay await only yards from this very conversation overhearing every word and detail. It was then that day that very moment agreed to finish the project, and my wife's favorite color was decided to emblazon her new mayor. Yep you guessed it...Digital Woodland Cammo Green it was to be. After much study and 8 months tapeing and spraying, all of her cammo is applied, and just now wiring up the last of her veins to restart that heart, but along the way she got a lot of fancy jewels to make her feel a bit more confident of herself and show off a bit too, because after that long await to breath new life again it should be done right... so after much bloodshed bumps and bruises, and cursing and cursing and cursing and drinking until the wee hours of the morning, my wife and I decided that any ***** with this much personality had to have a real name. So PARABELLUM it became! Now, there's still a lot planned for this ol girl, and it's been such a long road that I'll not have pictures of the build along the way, I will soon return to show off what long term dedication (and patients) can lead to. I would like very much to thank all those knowledgeable people who contribute in any progressive way to this forum. It has been such a big help in getting this long term project wound down as quickly as possible. It is unreal the amount of information and help that have come from this group, I had no idea that such a place existed before this spring. Thank you all from me, BabyGirl, PARABELLUM and anyone like us that just forgot to say so... Thanks. remember that to Parabellum is a ***** coming to y'all soon in 2014. Have a SAFE and happy new year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As promised, Parabellum took her maiden trip around the block today after gettIng the rear of the master cylinder bled out. After many bumps, bruises, blood, sweat, and tears the long wait patients and determination finally pays off in a very rewarding stroll around the block. With dual open headers of course. Thanks for the great mods Jeep Forum members. They all worked out without a hitch.
