You're correct...New tunnel, dash and probably a custom center console. Everything seems to line up pretty well though!

We have some good shots of the progress made the past few days. The fire wall was cut back to make room for the motor/trans and is sitting in place. This should give you an idea of how large this motor really is compared to the stock 3.8L.

Now that we have a rough idea of where the motor needs to sit, we can begin the process of reinforcing the frame, adding motor mounts and so on... This was a big step in the right direction.

very cool. I can't wait to start my cummins JK project. Just got the tub home last weekend! Now to start stripping the Dodge donor down. Mine will be much more like the UA one, although on a 2nd gen chassis. (if I can make it work well enough)

Alright guys, looking for a little feed back here...We have been working on paint and have a few options we'd like to hear what you guys think of. If you want to make it real simple, just post up the number you prefer... The options are below, and each picture is numbered 1-4.

1

2

3

4

None of these are 100% yet, but we'd just like to see what you guys think. Thanks again for the feed back!

I like 1, it would look nice if the center of the hood was also black, but not out to the edge of the hood like 3.

(there is no 4 pic . . .)
