I dont believe that 97" wheelbase talk for nothing. My TJ is 97 and i have not cut anything. I know there is more room in the EB than a tj.

There is, but I dont want to cut the grille and having 40" tires doesn't help the cause either.

LINK the rear and leave the front where it is, or hang the shackles of the rear bumper for a couple extra inches.

Same in the rear, I dont want a comp cut style rear end. Rear is already pushed as far as I can with modifing the brake light portion of the rear end.

My windshield actually folded down and goes back up


I think the more and more I work on it the more and more I get unmotivated.





I did get my brake pedal assembly installed and the booster/master along with the gas pedal. Built a bracket to adapt a later model column, just need to get one.

I hoping to have it out (not done) for R&V Jan 1st.


Usually I would crank this stuff out and would of been wheeling a while ago. But on this, this cancer stuff on the body is a very strong demotivator .

Can't wait to see this one. I've always liked the look of the early Broncos.
