Good job, looks great, I love the color.
Thanks. As I said above, I'm terrible about taking pics while I'm working on something. I honestly don't know how people who create intricately detailed build threads do it. If I had stopped every 10 minutes to clean my hands and grab the camera to document the whole process it would have taken 6 years instead of 3. I respect those who can do this, but it's not for me.I want to know why we are just hearing about this build now. Why did you feel you had to restore this Gem secretly as a closet restorer under are noses with no build thread.
Looks to me like it is a Sunpro Tach. I see them all the time in AutoZone. I might be mistaken, but that's what it looks like to me.Watched the video, who is the manufacturer of the tach you are using. The size looks good and I want to install an aftermarket tach in my CJ when I install the new engine.
Thanks.Great stuff Pathkiller....must feel great to have your CJ just about complete.

Again...it must feel good to see the fruits of three years of work, Congrats!!
Thanks. It'll share DD responsibility with my Scrambler, which is my current DD. But I need to do some things to the Scrambler, so it'll be nice to have the CJ5 to rely on while the Scram's in the garage. Nothing too serious with the CJ8, it definitely won't be another full frame off, but I need to address some minor rust issues and then paint it. Fortunately it has a great drivetrain (a still-new fuel injected 4.6L stroker and AX-15/D300) so I won't need to do anything mechanical to it at all. I'm thinking about returning it to stock-ish height and ditching the 33" tires for 31's, returning it to a more original look.Nice job Pathkiller! You ought to get many years use out of that. Going to be a D.D.? Engine sounds great too. :thumbsup:
