I figured I would add a small update. I haven't really got much done on this lately due to the fact that I am going in for knee surgery soon and can't get around very good. I did get the skid plate mostly finished up and started to tear in to my d300 because I found a few leaks. I have my gas tanked mounted and I am ready to start running fuel lines soon. Unfortunatley there won't be much progress on this until late ocotber or november now though.

fuel lines, tcase seals and set up for twin stick to be ready for the body to go back on.

The body needs to have some minor sheet metal work under the passenger side where I had to cut for the tcase clearance, fix to broken body bolts and make some small cuts for access to the bolts on the cj tailgate.

With these things done the body can go back on!

I will shoot you a pm when I get ready to go on it again.

I finally got back to working on this. I got the fuel system plumbed and wired and I got the body back on. I wish I would have gotten it a little lower but this will work. Ride height will be about 4-5" taller. The way it sits at full bump it is 73 1/2" to the top of the windshield and 19 1/2" to the bottom of the frame.







Next I plan to get the radiator and grill mounted and start wiring the new gauges and getting it ready to fire.

Pictures are at full bump I assume? A lot of stuff gets in the way on a full frame rig doesn't it?

yep, full bump. I could have gone a little lower but I put my coilover hoops too low. Its crazy how you make clearance for something and you have issues somewhere else.
