I'm kind of thinking getting some CJ replacement bed corners may be the way to get that all formed up right.
im at 104.5 but i am going to be running J-10 springs in the rear that will probably push it somewhere between 105.5 to 106 or so..

i thought about getting replacement corners but right now i just want it to get done, i may add then at a later date..we'll see.

Thanks for the info. The guy that posted on Pirate says that one is about Scrambler length, but looking at the way they formed up the bed, I bet it's 114" os so.

Good stuff, I'm looking forward to seeing you build the bed, too. I wish I could get started, too many things to finish first... Next winter!

I did some work this weekend..

1.) put on some J-10 springs (i still need to move the shackle hanger back about an inch)
2.) attached my wheel spacers.
3.) put my 35's on


my bed is comming in this week, so i am looking forward to getting that welded together and mounting it on the frame..

This looks 10x cooler on 35s with a slightly longer wheelbase, Rob. Nice work!

tugly bed

Well i recieved the custom bed pannels in the other day and welded some 1/2" square tub around the tailgate opening to support it...it turned out well.

i know the tail gate is higher than the sides but that is because i will be welding some cj-7 tub pieces to match...

i was really digging the cardboard mock up bed, it looked cool and was well layed out, if the custom sheetmetal doesnt work out you could always slather the cardboard in fiberglass resin and run it!! j/k awesome build, very unique

i have welded up the bed and set it up on the jeep so i could mock up where the mounting points will be.


other things i did recently.--moved front axle back 1.5" (so the tires are more centered in the wheel well
--lifted the front with different spring packs.
--changed out front axle joints.
--all new brake parts all around

things that need to be done.--switch out gear box brakets with new HD braket
--weld mounting points on frame for body
--move rear shackle mounts back an 1" or so
--finish welding rear body tub/paint it/mount tj flares/ then run it.

sort of, i had a huge vac leak i found, runs better but not perfect. I took the webber carb apart and cleaned it too. Im hoping that the carb im getting from BogHog360 does the trick.
