After finally giving up on my old XJ I had had since high school , chassis and body was bent far beyond repair and too many cracks and bends in the cage and complete destruction of the engine and trans I had to move on to a new jeep , thus I found my self where all great disasters start ... craigslist ... I found this cj for a whopping $150

The XJ right before it’s death had a radius arm front on coil springs and triangulated 4 link rear Dana 30 and 8.8 4.88 gears and lunch box lockers
I decided to be cheap and move all the rear suspension parts to the CJ , sold the radius arm kit to a friend
In hind sight I would have done the rear as a true double triangulated set up but since it was already made I used it

The front and rear are stretched quite a bit to make 105” wheelbase and to help with drive line angles

Also the fuel tank should be pretty interesting, it’s a keg in a bucket , I have some fake ice to put around it and ratchet straps to look like they are holding it down with a tap as the filler , I’ll take more picture of that when I’m finishing it up , I’ve never seen it done that way yet and I hope to be pulled over some day and have the cop as me about it lol

A few months ago I had picked up a th400 trans with an adapter to the np231 for a few hundred bucks , I originally was going to put in a tbi gm 350 but one day I was strolling there the junk yard for something else and ran into a LS1 that was almost all pulled out so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity

Motor mounts

After tacking in the motor mounts and pulling the engine in and out to make sure it would be removable if need be I decided to go ahead and weld up the mounts completely in 1 pass. , in my foolishness or eagerness I had forgot that the metal would distort some from the heat and would move around a bit , so when I went to install the engine the next day it didn’t fit! The space for the engine had shrunk about a 1/8th inch , thankfully I was able to fit my port-a-power between the frame rails and press the frame apart as I dropped the engine in place

Made some really ugly double shear knuckle brackets
I’m not too worried about how this axle turns out I’ve got plans to re tube a d44 down the road but this axle came off the old jeep so I’ll make it work for now
