Cj7 w/z06-ls6 corvette-500 hp

Bought new, over 200k on oem 6, then frame up restore including Z06-LS6 Corvette engine prepared by, including the long headers, the late Hot Rod Hall of Famer Mark Campbell of Street/Performance. 8.8 rear w/13" disc brakes and 93/4 power booster w/Wilwood master.
Gforce T-5 built by Long Industries rated at 650 lbs., w/9310 nickle straight cut gears, we picked out own ratio for each of the 5 gears including a .52 5th gear that allows us to run only 2k rpms at 75 mph. 410 gears with lockers up front.
Super Swampers. Bell housing and internal clutch slave by McCleod w/oem Jeep 4 cylinder pedal set up. Best clutch i've owned. Wilwood master. Lined tub w/2 layers of Dynamite, so no vibration with the 9 speaker Focal systerm including custom rear bass box with 2-13" Focal woofers in down firing position so dirt, etc. doesn't get in jeepin. Box is even with rear wheel wheels so wouldn't notice it being a stero box and can store items on top, etc. 6 channel Phoenix Gold amp. Rock Valley custom 15 gallon gas tank with Zrok double gas lines for cool gas.
Doubled the size of the leaf springs on teflon greasable bushings w/Bilstein shocks. Tried several brands of shocks and these were the best. Most fun rig i've owned and it will blow off my 97-993-C4 Cab Porsche up to 100 mph. Real fun at stop lights with the rice burners.
I pull jet skis and a boat on 3k mile trips and it doesn''t even know anything is back there! 24 miles to a gallon without boat due to the .52 5th gear. Most are .75 or so. I tried a 400R tranny first and hated it. Love this T-5 w/BM short shifter and no adapter plates needed for transfer case, etc.
It weighs approx 80lbs vs. the monster 400. It will do 120 in 3rd with the ratio i used so great gear for most all in town driving and great in 4 low. TIGHT LINES AND DUST.
