    Default Belly-UP CJ-5-7-8

    Since there was a post under the vendors section and not everyone can post there. I decided to put up a thread on the subject here. For those that have done this to there rigs post up how you did it

    A friend of mine belly up'd his CJ-7 like so: You need a indexing ring to clock the D300 flat. If you do not have a body lift, you will need to be wiling to cut the floor out as there isn't enough room other wise. He cut out around the t-case and recessed it into the passengers floor boards. He then made a cover to bolt to the floor to seal and cover the case. It's also a quick access pannel to remove the drive shaft from the t case alot easier. He then fabbed the cross member to attach to the side of the frame rails, inside the rails. It was solid mounted to the trans then used spring bushings to provide a cushioning effect at the frame rails. The entire bottom was then covered with a 3/16" piece of plate steel. Nothing hangs below the frame rails. I don't have pics right now of the system but I'll work on getting some. It's a very slick set up. His rig also has the rockers 45' cut just below the doors. The rig has as much ground clearance as most rigs on 38's and he's on 33's. The rig aslo sports a 5 cyl mercades turbo diesel, a AX-15 and a Dana 300, it gets 29 MPG with 456's and 33's I told him I'd never drive anything else lol.

    ...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
