Sadly not the progress I intended, but its creeping along. Just got this door done enough to mount, inside of it is painted black so that accentuates the shadows in door line..plus it seems maybe later doors had skinnier posts at the windshield line..quite a gap but you can see the rest of is lined up really good. Good enough for me! Tint is in good shape, these are off a 78 Cherokee. Door panels on the inside will be that desert camo that was floating around here last year

Those dink tires annoy me. I decided to go ahead and 3/4 ton it with the matching HD44 and D60 I have here in 4.10 gearing. saving up for cj perches and rear D60 disk brake kit (if I can find one for a dodge D60..). Although, if anyone reading has the guts to D60 drums, I'd do that. Mine came completely empty :/

Thanks Zack! Just got the drivers door done and should hang it tomorrow. Next is windshield and the cab is buttoned up.

Really at this point I am stalled with the front and rear axles, need to get mounts and weld em up. Hopefully by fall I can have it movable under its own power, and road ready by spring.

Look out for those old Hornet 327s; they can be full of surprises--some good, some not so good. I assume you've done the chain/sprockets upgrade...

Yeah Dave, I pulled off the timing cover, and it DIDN'T have a fiber sproket..the chain was just junk and had stretched. Put a new one in there and a new seal and called it good.

Sorry, the Eaton came from..6' away off my spare 327. I'd hunt down some mid 60s wags with the 327 and snag one off those. Also you can look in AMC cars, the Ambassadors with 327s would have the same one. 70s saginaw PS hoses thread right in, no need to go paying silly money for NOS stuff (worked for me anyways, just a little long).

K so..latest update, DOORS and facelift. Thanks to Sean (grandwag85) for the donated Rhino grille, Thomas (Kaiserman) for the headlight rings and pieplates), Pam and Alan (NE715) for the killer air cleaner. And past thanks to Chuckchili for the completely non sagged rear springs, Ristow for the carb, Tad for parts many years ago that ended up on this, etc etc. Takes a village to build a dinosaur :P







Got lucky with the pass side door and it went on smooth. Been fighting the past hour with the drivers door, but I have it lined up 'good enough'. Have to replace the door part of the latch, got one pulled and ready to attempt re-install in this. The doors are off a 78 Cherokee, and seem to fit okay.

That black thing on the front is a section of 75 Cherokee WT rear frame that I made fit on there as sort of a bumper. Plans are for a big ole FU piece of C channel eventually.

The dinky front 44 will soon be swapped for a 4.10 geared GM HD44 as soon as I procure a matching D60 for the rear. That should help fill up the huge openings. Getting closer..drivers front M715 fender will go on as soon as I get my clutch linkage set up at the proper angle and then onto putting together a hood for it..

Soon as I figure out the vac lines and fix the clutch linkage and finish the little bit of fuel lines and hang a tank... Provided the wiring doesn't go up in flames from something hooked up weird :P

I'm very pleased you are using that stuff instead of it getting recycled into a toaster.

Heck ya!! I am waiting to order some front CJ width spring pads from ya, gotta see where the pass side will sit in regards to the cast mount on the HD44. I have a pair of your D44 7" pads for the back, was just going to widen the curve on the feet so they fit the D60.

My thinking is you are going to wind up on the tube, but yea, let's wait and see, might be a new version for the front post mount trucks.

Yep, pretty simple, you'll be taking out about 3/16" on each side of the lower curve and tapering up to the existing cut.

Sweeeeet. Yeah with the outboard springs it should clear it but want to line it up and see. Since I need to roll the truck in and out of the garage to work on it, sorta waiting till D-day on that.

Got the latch hardware swapped out on the door, definately NOT a hard job and didn't even require looking at schematics..it' pretty much a 1 monkey job.

Now it's siesta time

probably won't cut them considering what they are worth. Ultimately I would like to either find a M715 bed or fab round M715 style rear flares. Most likely the latter.

Plus this puppy won't be articulating that much
