This thread is like watching a silent film... I can start off viewing it with good intentions, but by the time I'm half way through I've lost interest...

Change is not always bad but it is always hard for the older folks.

1946 cj2a dubbed mary jane

3.7l mercruiser with a t5

Cj5 dana 44 rear
Dana 35 converted into a beam from axle (removed pig)

Coilovers in front

Airbags in rear

305/65r17 in back and 30x9.5 in front

Also going to be making some beadlocks for the sprint car tires to swap onto the rear for dooones



Assuming i like everything, plan to hop up the merc in the future and shave weight on the engine. Aluminum bbf head shaves around 30#.

Figure i can drop about 20 off the rotating mass.

The secondary vibration from the pistons have me a bit worried to push too much power.


Just wrapped up the rear axle last night. Going to start putting the drivetrain together and prepping the front axle

That's a really cool build!! I like that you are using the 3.7L. That's a really unique engine. (Ford 460 head, pistons, and connecting rods)

post #33 is only one I have at the moment. Had it mocked up on the stock rims/tires sitting on jackstands before putting it in the weeds for a while. gonna have to make a new floor. Too bad to be saved, so it will be reborn as a fun little hot rod.

Mary Jane comes from that vista green paint with just the right patina.

Got it welded up.

Ordering some steering components, then hopefully getting brakes on in the morning. Might hold off on tires until all put together. Hoping I don’t need new calipers

Also buying some land rover radius arms for the rear

Got the rest of the parts i needed to finish up the axles minus suspension brackets.

That is around 80” wb, but i should be more like 84” when I’m done i think.

Gonna put a set of sprint car tires on these for doonage. Just a pair for the rear.



Pulled the engine into the shop





Swapped the starters out. Shaved 12#ish

Broke my harmonic balancer puller. Gotta get another.
