Sadly I have to report that she has been out of service since the beginning of the year . She met a tree head on after sliding on a patch of ice. The good news is I wasn't going to fast so the damage could have been alot worse. The bad news is it hit directly on the end of the frame rail and bent the frame.

That being said she will be rebuilt!!!!

I am at work at the moment so I will post pictures when I get home.

What sites did you go through to get parts? I have a J10 as well and would like to make it look a little better.

I found most of my parts from various part outs and donor vehicles. Most of the parts actually came from a wagoneer. I did by the box from Southern automotive I believe was the company. It wasn't new but it was clean. What kind of parts are you looking for? I have some sitting around and I can ask some of my friends and see what they have.

Got a new plan in place for the Gladi.

I recently picked up a 07 Ram 1500 rolling chassis with the NP243 T-Case and 545RFE Trans
Also just bought a 5.7 to complete the driveline Now just gotta find a wiring harness and a few odds and ends. Plan is to shorten the frame and set the body down on it. Can't wait to have a jump from 66 to 07 ride tech. Should ride smoother and be alot nicer on the freeway.

Been a while since I updated. Sadly havn't had much time to work on her.But I do have the rolling chassis up on wheels with the gas tank and pulled. I've shortened the frame 20" and last night put a new filter in the trans so trans and tcase are in and ready to go. I have the rear driveshaft out getting shortened. I'll post up pictures tonight when I get home from work.

If anyone knows of a 04 + ram sitting in a junkyard somewhere let me know I need to snag some parts.
