I forgot to mention that It has a clean title. The guy owned it outright and didn't turn it in so when I'm done I won't have a salvaged title. That was huge to me. But I do have a ton of stuff if a guy wants to go sprung over. I have a BTF front and rear full width stretch kit. With XJ springs for the Rear and RE 2.5" YJ's for the front. As well as a M.O.R.E traction bar. All of it is brandnew if you know of anyone going full width soon.

Well........Here is how it all went down. I was fishing on Pirate about a year ago and found a great deal on a set of axles. Locked. Geared. With 5 wheels and 38.5" tires. Highsteer set up. It was a 44 front and a 9" rear. Gave 1500 for them then decided it was time to find a rig to slap them under. Found the "Toxic CJ" on Ebay had a buddy who was going to VA pick it up for me and I was set. Then I thought.......Ya know that set up isn't that far off from what I have in the "Toxic TJ". Why would I want 2 of the same thing. So I sold off the axles wheels and tires for the same price I gave for them and bought a set of 1 tons off of jeepnazi on here. Then I had to look for tires. Bought the 42's. Then the TBI350. Then the 700r4. I got a dana 300 off of jeep nazi too with twin sticks. NOW I was ready to build a REAL rig. But I've had leaf sprung rigs all my life. I'm not all that wild about the aproach you get with them. I found this wrecked TJ on Ebay last week. Told the guy if he would trade me jeeps and slide me some cash I would take it off his hands. The only real reason is that I was going to coil over the CJ and to be honest with you their frames just are not as good as the YJ's or TJ's. I was going to build a new tube frame but after priceing it out just the cost of the tube etc. I was dollars ahead looking for a TJ. And since I had to put tube fenders on the front anyhow. It didn't matter that this one has a trashed fender. It does suck that I'll have to buy a hood but oh well. So there it is in a nut shell. I'll now be building on a TJ because of the stronger frame if nothing else. It's a 4 cyl. stick but that doesn't matter since it will have to all come out for my 350/700r4.

Thanks for the pictures!!
This thread is about to take a twist. I just sold the CJ for a TJ. I'll post up pics of it here in a bit. I'll be starting a new thread since the build will no longer be on a CJ frame. Thanks for all of the help up to this point and I hope for continued help

|jason m||this is the last one. the piece on the bottom that looks like a wedge that's the bottom bolt. i alway leave a little meat around that area to protect it, jason.|

|jason m||heres a few pictures, there not the best but i had to do them before the rain started agin. i used all allen head bolts near the botton and going half way up the sides. the last 14 bolt i didn't and the bolts where near impossable to get out. so im hopping the allen bolts get banged up as much. what ever you do get a 3/8 thick cover, i used ruffstuff covers. they hold out the best and help the bottom lip from getting ground down. i do have one more picture from the bottom of the jeep, but i need to crop it. heres some more to come, jason.|
