It's been a long summer dealing with some personal things. The Willys was pushed to the a side for awhile. But in the last few weeks we manage to get a few things done.
Swaped out axles.
Rear is now a Explorer 8.8 with 3" lift XJ leaf springs
Front is now a Dana 30 out of a Wrangler for now.
Extended the front frame to accommodate 3" lift YJ leaf springs and YJ power steering box.
It originally had manual brakes with frame mounted master cylinder with the brake pedal coming through the floor.
Now we mounted XJ brake booster, master cylinder, proportioning valve and brake pedal. Ran all new brake lines.
Originally had manual steering box, Now mounted YJ power steering now out front.
Boxed the front half of the frame.
Just finished rebuilding and assembling the vortec 350.
Still have a long way to go but I feel like it should be running by spring.
