Project Schizo!!!

This is my new project as it sits now: 98 TJ, with a vortec 350 a 7004r, chevy 231 transfer case, Cadillac leather seats, bunch of stickers.





I bought it with the intention of building it for myself, but after my father saw it, he said he wanted it, so now I will be building it for him.

Heres the plan:
-Edelbrock pro-flo fuel injetion, heads, cam...
-Painless wirning CJ-7 complete vehicle wiring harness to get rid of the factory wiring.
-Dana 60 rear narrowed down to 60-64", custom alloy shafts and an ARB locker with a custom 4 link, with an extended wheelbase, hope to get to 102-104", not sure yet on factory springs, airshocks or coilovers.
-Dana 44 HP Ford front, narrowed to match the rear, alloy shafts, longfield 300m u-joints, an ARB locker, with coilovers, and a longarm setup.
-flipped dana 300 transfer case, with 700r4 adaptor, the 700r4 will get beefed up by and an Art Carr shifter.
-The body will get Poison Spyder rocker guards, flat fenders, and modified rear Krusher Corners, to help fit large tires with a low lift to keep a low COG, and a full custom cage.
-Tires will be 37-39" Pitbull rockers, BFG krawlers, or Iroks, on Walker Evans fully polished 15" or 17" beadlocks.
-Paint will get cleaned up, I will either keep it red, or paint it white. Interior will get line-x'd along with wheelwels.
I plan to start working on this Jeep during my winter break from College, and whenever i have free time. This Jeep should be finished by Spring/Summer. I plan to keep the budget around 10-12k, Ill post update when I start working/collecting parts. Let the fun begin.

He wants to narrow them though. So custom shafts and locker gears etc. gonna be spendy. That why I left mine full width, cheaper and easier to get shafts.

Update time, cause everyone is doing so.
As of now i have recieved my Edelbrock Pro-flo efi setup, a Painless wiring CJ-7 complete vehicle harness, a Rubicon Express long arm skid, a Downeast offroad dana 300 flip kit, and a dana 60 rear axle. This week I plan on buying my 7075 solid 1.75" aluminum for the rear links. I found a good deal locally, 4 sections 48" long for $260. Right now i need to buy some flex joints and a BTF
rear truss system. After that will come either Edelbrock vortec aluminum heads or some GM performance fast burn heads, a bit more ramped up cam, and some other engine bling.

heres what was done today:
completly removed all of the factory wiring harness.
front fenders an grill are off, took off the carb and intake, and front pullys.
I need to borrow a cherry picker to pull the engine and trans out, then i can check the motor mounts and see if they will need reinforcement. Then the motor will go back in, il throw on the efi setup and start wiring
