Default 95' Genright Crawler project

Ladies and Gents,

In a nut shell I am basically trying for the most part to build as similar as possible this. I will however have some changes but for the most part this is the idea I am going with.



Here is a link to their website where you can find all the specs

http://www.genright.com/custom.aspx?id=1


So far:
LS 6.0 ( also have running 5.3 and blown piston no scoring on the walls 5.7 for sale)
4L60E
Dana 300 transfer case
High Pinion Dana 60's, Custom length with Moser axles and Yukon 513 gears.(building in the works)
King 2.0's with reservoirs.
Genright Comp Suspension kit
4 link rear 3 link front
Genright Stinger front bumper with winch carrier
Genright Stinger rear bumper
Genright Boulder Tire Carrier
Genright Crawler Gas Tank
Genright rocker guards stretch
Gen-Right full roll cage with all 6 points tied into the frame
Genright YJ 6in Tube Fenders
Genright Full COMP cut corner guard set with 4" shifted wheel well
AGR power steering with rock ram and cooler
Bestop soft top


Need to locate:

Harnesses
Seats front and rear
Truss front
Belly plate (Genright if cannot find)
radiator
Million other things that always come up

Need to decide on:

Head and Tail lights / Additional lighting
Line-x or What other liner to use on the interioir
Whats colors to paint the exterior and other parts
Audio (Possibly Genright Cage Audio System)
Where to run exhaust
which wheels and tires
which winch
What to do with the Dash

I am sure I am forgetting some things but for the most part this is the just of things.

All parts which are being replaces or no longer needed are all for sale.

-Matthew



Here is some of the progress thus far.

Rockers and bumpers fitted


Interior out cage ready to go.


Cage out.


Cage in.


Motor ready to go





6.0 ready to be mocked up.


Mocked up.


Dana 60's


King 2.0's with Reservoirs





AGR Rock Ram arrived.


Rear Axle prepped




Weld on!!!


Rear Links.


Rear Axle geeting ready to be mocked up.


Rear is set in place.

I may have to get in contact with you or them though for the Audio system they sell that attaches to the top of the cage.

Thank you Hell Spawn.

I am really at a fork in the road as to what color to paint it I am deciding between a Military green possibly O D, Good ole BLACK, or a Dark Metallic Gray. Any help would be appreciated.

I do not want it identical to the genright one in that aspect. The gray and Red are really weighing hard on me at this time. I also have the King parts that are BLUE and clash with everythign but black and gray.

I do not want it to resemble the Genright YJ exactly so I need to put a little of my own touch on it other than the motor.

Looks real good so far....I used alot of the genright products myself and was very happy with everything they made. How big of a tire are you planning on running?

40-42 which I am seeing a really huge jump in prices from 30's ha ha. I am really considering the trailworthfab 16.5's beadlocks if they will for sure clear my dana 60 brakes and then finding a decent set of 40-42's that will fit. Any pointers?

Rock Monster wheels!!!!!!!
17's are what most of the tire manufacturers are focusing on.
16.5's will be obsolete soon.

Ironman thanks for the tire and wheel info.

Love the Satin colors just figured they are pores hence hard to clean?
