Looks good! I remember that tire/wheel combination. Do you still have the H2's from the 37's? I need a set.

Negative, the new 37s I got came with another set that are on my truck and I sold the ones I got from you. These ones are a little more beat up but I didn't feel like hassling with swapping them over and re-balancing.

Cause you'll have this one done before I even get mine back into being a roller Stupid question but what style are those rear axle rotors? Chevy 3/4 fronts?

Haha yup that's the plan. I wanna have it up and ready to rock for as much of the summer as possible....still got a ton of work to do though, this is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm told they're just the standard mid 70s Chevy rotors but they were on the axle when I got it so I'm not positive.

Made some more progress. Nothing too major but it took some time and is a nice morale booster to be able to really SEE some progress. I guess I'll start off with the only ones people will care about:







The back end of the tub is sitting 1.5-2" higher than it should be due to this:

Once I trim the floor for that and link clearance it'll sit right.

The process:
HoverJeep!




Pretty pitiful looking....


Decided I should clean up the underbody so I don't have to deal with rust issues later.
Before:


After:

Gonna prime any bare metal and undercoat the whole underside eventually but didn't bother coating it yet since it'll be coming off a few more times still.

Replaced one of the body mounts that was rusted:


Eliminated one of the other body mounts that was badly rusted and isn't getting used:

The patch panel is a chunk of the Scrambler hood

Looks like I'm gonna be replacing part of the floor before this thing's done too:


Only sh1tty thing I discovered is that the engine/trans/t-case are supposed to be offset about an inch to the passenger side. I built mine centered so looks like I'll be modifying the motor mounts to get things lined up how they should be.

Feels good to at least see it looking like a big Jeep
