CJ 1 piece axle conversion
Guys, I am brand new to this forum. I have an 83 CJ7. New frame restoration, 258, Clifford Intake, Holley 4-barrel, 4.0 head conversion, HEI, 2.5 inch lift, 33's. That's pretty much where I sit.
This winter I want to do the Moser 1-piece axle conversion and put a locker on the rear while I am doing it. I have a nice garage with great tools. I have the money to get the stuff I need but I have no press (nor would I know how to use it if I had one).
Any thoughts on the conversion and how hard is it?

BTW - I have the Dana 20 rear.

Be patient, check out parts for sale, I ended up with a complete rear end, trussed, 4.10 gears, 1 pc Moser's with locker for the price that I would have paid for a locker alone. Welcome to GL4x4, or if you have the budget, there's plenty of help to be found here too.
