Cj7 w/z06-ls6 corvette-500 hp

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.
JUST ADDED PICTURE OF THE MCLEOD TWIN CLUTCH.
TIGHT LINES AND DUST.

"Hall of Famer Mark Campbell of Street/Performance. 8.8 rear w/13" disc brakes and 93/4 power booster w/Wilwood master."

It doesn't look like a Wilwood master to me. Looks like a Chinese copy of an early Vett master that many of us here have. If you know where to buy them, the master cylinder itself is worth all of $30.00.

Those numbers don’t add up...

For a world class T5, which is what he is running if my memory serves me right...you will never ever reach 2000rpms @75 with a final ratio of 0.52. with 33” tires on 4.10 gears. When I saw those numbers, something didn’t smell right.

If you are running the basic stock ratio for a later model WCT5 with a 0.68 final gear then I would agree, 0.68 @ 70-75 mph w/ about 2000-2100 rpms on 33” tires w/ 4.10’s is right on. With a final ratio of 0.52 @ 75 mph you get about 1628 rpms on 33” tires.

Might want to revisit those number...a difference of 400 rpms is quite large. Unless you jump to about a 28” tire I don’t see 2000rpm @ 75mph.

Could be a Wilwood clutch master...reservoir top looks similar.

"Could be a Wilwood clutch master...reservoir top looks similar." To the best of my knowledge, Wilwood does not make cast iron master cylinders.

There are too many gray areas in this post. I wonder if he even owns that Jeep or if as suggested earlier, he pulled the pictures off the net or out of a magazine. Maybe he has lots of money and purchased the Jeep and does not know the facts because he did not put it together.

500hp and a Ford 8.8 rear end do not sound like a good combination to me.

Nice jeep, where is the guy with the blown jeep, maybe we can get a race going!
A 9" would have been a better choice.

Watch out posting on this click bait fake thread. Someone on here thinks they are an amateur hacker. I tried posting to this thread like 20 mins ago and got a denial of service type attack to my pc. Was just affecting this website. Someone out there is feeling cute this morning. Nice try.

The Wilwood master is the one with the small plastic top and is for the hydrolic clutch that operates the internal slave unit and not the brakes.

I do get 24 mpg without the boat and on freeway. It's only running just over 2k rpms at 75 mph due to the .52 5th gear. That engine got 29 miles to gallon in the Corvette.

I'd like to see recent pictures that weren't in the photo shoot 9 years ago. Where were you from again?
The one picture is being used on bushwackers website. Are you getting any credit for it? Just wondering.

wow, you need to get a life and stop ragging on others post. The nerve to call someone a liar/fraud that you know nothing about. You obviously don't know squat if you think an 8.8 rear end isn't good. In my opinion, the 8.8 is damn near as strong as a 9 inch the only real advantage to a nine is the gear swap. The 8.8 its much stronger then a 10 bolt chevy. To me its a hell of a rear end. An 8.8 is strong. QUOTE FROM DRAG RACER: Here is my experience. I drag race a mustang. It has a stock 8.8 out of a thunderbird in it. I have around 700 hp. I decided to leave the rear end stock just to see how strong it was. I beat that rear end weekend after weekend at the drag strip. slicks and a prepped track for 3 years and the clutch pack is what finally gave out. The axles are strong as hell, and reality is the ring gear is 8.8 or .2 smaller then a 9. Using a 9" will create more drive train losses, based on the geometry of the gears. Therefore you need more power just to turn the 9" and the faster you go the more those loses become. The 8.8 is used in Shelby GT500s and those have been modified to close to 1,000 HP with no rear end failures on the track. Best rear end out there for the money.
ATTACHED AN ARTICLE "OFF ROAD MAGAZINE DID ON THE BUILD TO SHOW YOU HOW STUPID YOUR COMMENTS WERE. Who would go to the time/effort to do a phony article???? AGAIN, YOU NEED SOMETHING TO DO.
