40\'s mounted

Finally got some real tires mounted on my frame. Also installed the MORE motor mounts and positioned and welded the crossmember and frame brackets together. The dirty motor and trany where installed to position everything. They will be rebuilt before i am done. It's been too cold to work on the Jeep so this is the next best thing.

Re: 40\'s mounted

Looks good, how long is the wheel base? It looks nice and light the way it sits now. Put a seat and some steering on that thing and lets go wheelin. But,...dont forget to wear a warm jacket.

The wheelbase is 96.5 ". The power to weight ratio is killer, at least for a few more months. Can't wait to get it covered it mud.
