The mock-up 5.3(cheap high mileage pull-out from a buddy's truck) is still in it right now, the 6.0L is covered up and strapped to a pallet patiently waiting to be placed between the framerails.

Anybody else interested in major parts?

I'd still like to sell it as complete as possible so for anything like the frame+tub+cage I'd make deals, HP60+14BFF, supercharger+engine, engine+trans+t-case, etc.

I'm interested in the coil overs.
Just don't quite have that much cash in hand.

Looks liek you've moved the engine and trans?

I don't think the cage/frame is in my picture right now, I'm going to be bodding mine to unlimited length, and think I will wait on my cage until I have the top on so it clears..

If you didn't get rid of the mid-length headers, I'd be interested in those.

What cam do you have?

Do you have the oil pickup to go with the f-body oil pan?

Have any seats with it?

Yes, sale is pending on the engine and trans. Still have the t-case though, that's the big dollar item so I'd really like to sell that.

Up to you on the frame and cage, both would be super easy to shorten. What top are you running? The cab portion of the cage does clear a halfcab hardtop, I built it inside the top from the start, and I have no doubt the rear would fit inside a full hard or soft top.






I do still have headers currently. A friend of mine is interested, I'll have to confirm with him whether or not he wants them.

The cam is a Texas Speed & Performance 224/224, .581/.581, 110 LSA. It'll have a pretty nice lope and great top end without losing much of anything on the bottom end. My buddy has a very similar cam in his 5.3 and I freakin love it, that's why I bought this one. It's got 5k miles on it and is in perfect condition. $250. I've got Patriot Gold dual valvesprings and titanium retainers from the same package, good to .625" lift IIRC for another $150.

The F-body pan has everything; gasket, windage tray, pickup. I think it might even have mounting bolts, I canít remember off the top of my head. $200

Iíve got seats but not sure if Iím selling those yet or not, depends if I decide to build a cheaper project to satisfy my obsession or wuss out and be ďresponsibleĒ.

I wasn't thinking before.. I'm using a factory mopar LJ unlimited top, so I need to have the B pillar and A-to-B spreaders to be in the factory locations to mount the top properly...

hahha, I've been looking for one to measure. Big measurement are where the tabs are to mount the bow to the B-pillar.

how high above the belt rail, how far apart are they, and how far behind the rear of the door opening they are..

the door spreaders are the same as TJ, but the LJs use just a single attachemtn point to the B pillar, instead of like on a TJ.

Roger that. Hers is a hardtop but the critical points to measure will be the same obviously. I'll get numbers for everything that seems important and compare it to the Scrambler cage for ya.

You and me both! Besides just making it easier for me that's the biggest reason I'd like to sell it as complete as possible, even just the frame, tub, and cage together.

Here's some approximate numbers for ya. With the padding on the rollbar it was tough to get exact but I'd say the LJ measurements are all +/- .5"

LJ height of B pillar tabs above rail: 11"
Width btwn B pillar tabs: LJ: 51" Width of CJ cage C/L at 11": 50.5"
Height from floor at front of seats to top of AtoB spreader bar: LJ: 45.5" CJ: 46"
Width to outside of spreaders where window surrounds mount: LJ:51.5" avg CJ: 51.5-52" avg
LJ door opening to back of B pillar: ~8" CJ: ~8"
Floor to C/L of B pillar hoop in the middle. LJ: 47" CJ: 47"


In all honesty based on these numbers and everything I just looked at I think it'd work perfectly with an LJ softtop, but that's your call.

I'd like to get $1000 for the tub alone but I'd really prefer to sell the frame, tub, and cage together if possible. I haven't heard anything back from Jesus , but if he's still interested in the frame and cage then maybe that could work out too...

No problem, thank you!

Sales pending on the following:
-Coilovers
-6.0L and 4L80E
-5.3
-IROKs
-Beadlocks
-Full doors
-Hi-steer arms

I'll update once that stuff is officially sold. I'd really like to sell the frame/tub/cage combo as quickly as possible so if anyone is interested in that let me know. The axles, Stak t-case, and tons of other smaller items are still available too.

Unless they become part of another package deal I'm probably going to hold onto the links for now. I'm planning on going to a much cheaper project after this and doubt I could sell the links for enough to be worth having to buy the parts again for the next one. If that changes I'll let you know
