Hey thanks Jim. I really love the CJ 7's. I do quite a bit of work on them for local guys, so I wanted to stick with that.Awesome project, and excellent work you are doing! I'm wondering...is there a reason you started with a CJ-7 instead of a CJ-10? It would have saved you a fair amount of work. The military CJ-10s are usually rust-free to start with, already have a heavy frame, and are already diesel (although the Nissan isn't anything close to a 4bt...but it could have been swapped out). The frames are too short to start with, but you had to lengthen yours as well.
Keep the pics coming...I would love to get a 4bt into a Jeep someday...most likely an XJ though, or better yet, a Grand Wagoneer if I can ever find one with a good frame.
