No Sir, he did it the hard way and grafted in the YJ tailgate, rear cross-member, surrounds, corners, et al, to have the YJ tailgate functionality.

Hey - as long as it worked out the way you wanted it to, it's all good. Bummer your Jeep got mangled, but at least everybody was OK and you'll be able to 'replace' it.

Actually, after having seen the Power Nation video with the warmed-up 258, I think I'd consider just warming up what you have. Definitely seems like it would cheaper and less hassle in the long run.

I know, right?! That Jeep looks salvageable as well, all by itself (let alone the winch, seats, lights, wheels, spare tire rack, etc., etc., etc.,). Straighten the frame, replace/repair/straighten...

Don't know about actual physical dimensions, but I can't imagine a Jaguar XK engine being taller than an AMC 258 I-6, considering the vehicles they were stuffed into.

As RiverandSand mentioned,...

My buddy Dave just bought a Rampage YJ top for his '80 CJ-7 (since he has YJ half-doors) which fits perfectly. Probably about half the price of a SuperTop as well.

Right after installation in my...

I had a set of those treads on my old '85 Nissan 4x4 when I first bought it in 1990, but they were some old 235/75-R15 Armstrongs and called 'snow tires' in Utah. :wink2:

Thanks for the kind words!

WideTrac axles are approximately 4" wider than NarrowTracs, and AMC switched over to them in '82, I believe. You should be able to see the difference in track width...

Mine is also an '80 and had 31x11.50s on stock 15x7 wheels, NarrowTracs, 2.73s, 258 I-6, and a T-176 4-sp when I first bought it back in '95. Honestly, that configuration was the most fun I had with...
