Default the '46 2A *82" of FUN*

I think I finally have my build plan, and the engine goes in tomorrow so its a good time to post....




that mixed with a

Small Spring Lift
Buick 225 V6
T-86 or t-14
D18
slight stretch (very slight 2")
saggy swap using a FSJ power steering box (f'in huge)

pizza cutters
winch
possible PTO (if I can find one)

3.73 super NT D44
3.73 Standard NT D30 with Disc Brakes

Upgrade the Master cylinder to a 2 chamber at some point.

The jeep will have a military arctic hardtop off a M38 as well.

CJ5 frame... Beefier and will hold up better over time since this rig will likely be lightly wheeled.

Eventually Fuel Inject the 225 for added economy.

Sounds like it'll be an interesting rig...I always like the "looks stock from 20ft but when you get closer it's kinda rad" rigs....

I wanted it stock, but the more my buddy and I get into it it so 'dented' that I dont want to do the body work. Its very solid, just 'dented' So I am not going to be hurt making some changes. I will likely smooth the body as good as possible and paint it with navy markings to honor my grandfather, despite it not being a military jeep, 90% of people wont know and the others will laugh at me

Yes SOA front which will hopefully sit level with the tj coils in the rear. I am donating my stock control arms and rear springs.

ran into a snag tonight... the T4 I have is a one year only that has a spline count of 14, versus the 10 spline input of my T14. Not a huge deal, I just need a new clutch which I should do anyway,

The T14 is going to need WAY more modification then I thought to adapt it to the 60* bellhousing. We were hoping we could drill some holes and bolt it up.

The T14 to D18 bull gear is a 2 year only part and hard to find... (or $70 new)


The jeep will also get a small body lift to make up for the added height of the 150 CID 4 cyl

sooooooo need to scrounge up more parts. The t4 is way too long too if I dont want to stretch the jeep out a lot... and to put a D18 on a T4 it requires a $500 adapter I guess

the suspension is what we are doing though

Also, with a small body lift you wont have to pull the tub to change the clutch.
