    Got the body sitting on the frame now, front end is mocked up and looking good. Need to finish the 14 bolt and get it mounted so i have a rolling chassis. Motor and trans will go in next. You can see the Novak LT1 mounts mocked up on the frame. It sits a whole lot taller than i thought it was gonna. This jeep is gonna be a PITA to get in and out of

    Nice work man, I know that feeling my lil garage sucks too lol 19 x 22. I'm putting the same running gear into my CJ-8 project sans the trans I'm going with the nv4500. I'll be watching your build! The novak mounts loook interesting. They seem to have a ton of adjustability.

    yea I am hoping the novak mounts will give me enough clearance to have the D300 clocked without any crazy driveshaft set ups. Thats gonna be a sick setup in a CJ-8 i wish i could have gone that route but the 8 have gotten way to expensive

    Got a lot done, will get some pics up tonight hopefully. New crossmember has been built, body work has begun, motor trans and tranfer case all mounted. Swapped to XJ springs in the rear. I will have some made one its done so I can weigh it and determine the size lift spring I will need to match the spring over front, doing spring under in the rear for simplicity.

    ok kinda did a 180 in the past few months. I decided to go with an aftermarket frame and picked up an Advanced Frame Works CJ-7 Frame. Then decided leafs werent gonna ahck it and went and got the gen right 4 link kit with coilovers and mounts. Here is where she sits after last night. Everythignis tacked into place right now, cycled a lot and no bindong so I will prob leave it this way until the front is ready then I will final weld everything.

    I really hate that bindong!!

    Looks great man! I bet you can't wait to drive it, eh?


    With just 1" body lift, you can clock the D300 flat without hacking the tub.

    Being as you have an auto, you probably don't want it flat anyway (driveshaft/tranny/starter clearance)

    Looking good Mavdog!
