Default 4 door cj

My buddy is building a 4 door cj---hes calling it olds school to go along with the power plant. 455 big block approx 500 hp, 400, 205, dana44, 14 bolt. Basically made is own custom frame, and is taking a cj-7 tub cut right behind the doors and added cj-5 skins behind that to make 4 doors. Going to be mostly a dune ride...I'll get some pics hopefully by the end of the week.

There is one that goes by my house on a regular basis in the summer. Looks pretty sweet I think the guy by me used a blazer frame.

The frame is 3x5 3/16 thick. Its Aarons project. He said the motor should be done in a couple weeks. He is basically a dunes only kinda guy and figures with 500 hp and hopefully paddles he won't need to rely on the 44. I'll try to get back over there and get pics soon. I forgot my camera the other night.
