Hi everyone, this is my first thread. I'm 13 and just got my first jeep!!

05+ Super Duty Dana 60
05+ Sterling 10.5
3 link front
XJ rear leaf springs
Chevy 350
SM465
NP205
Aluminum Super Duty wheels
37 Cooper STT Pros

What was left of the engine had to go to make room for a v8!

Looked almost ready to fire... what a waste. :teehee:

But on a serious note, if you ever want to get rid of those tires, let me know.

I've been thinking really hard about this, but I can not part with these tires. :)

Had a great day in the barn today working on the Jeep. Gutted the engine bay, pulled the wiring harness, pulled the fenders and grill, and pulled the transmission and transfer case.

Disappointed to find that we have a T4 and not a T176 transmission, if anybody knows of a T176 for sale, please let me know

We knew the frame was rough but it's a lot worst than we thought, we've been scouting decent used frames and we've decided to build a frame instead. We are thinking 2x4 3/16.

Very cool. My first ride was a red 83 CJ7, although mine was a 4 cylinder and also had a T-4 transmission.

Booster August 10th, 2017 06:12 AM

Look forward to updates,

Today, once again, we had a very productive day in the barn. Got the shocks off, took off the body armor, took out the steering column, and took off the body and everything that had to go to get it off the frame.

The tub is in way better condition than we thought I would be in. All it really needs is a clean up and new floors all around.

Just because the body is off, doesn't mean I am not going to daydream about driving it and attempt it.

Project Heep CJ7
 
Well, we solved problem of the unexpected T4 transmission!! Made a little road trip last week and grabbed this little gem.

It is an SM465 and NP205

We also cleaned and sorted parts for storage until we need them.

Lastly, we moved the tub outside to start stripping the frame.
