Progress pics of CJ7 frame off

It's actually getting close to being ready for the 'glass tub to go on. I finished the traction bar today (due to SOA), added another bar of crossmember to mount front of t-bar, ground off the lower hanging stuff on the rear 44, and front 30 (this rebuild puts a front 44 to another day), air tank in with lines front to rear, rear shock hoop for cantilever set-up, motor/tranny/t-case all moved up 1.5", gas tank moved up 1.75", crossmember 1.5" more clearance than stock. Once the tub is on I can set the rear pinion angle and weld that up, lower shock mounts, front shock towers (Ford F-250), then fenders, then cage, then seats, then etc, etc.




My goal is to have it up and going by mid to late August, but don't want to rush it just to be done.

Re: Progress pics of CJ7 frame off

Just think how your poor little CJ5 must feel. Just sitting there discarded, being used for parts. It almost brings a tear to the eye. Oh well, the frame looks really nice. Maybe the CJ5 should have thought about what it was doing before it rolled over an played dead on the trail.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

PB, that's prettier than a diamond in the rough, and the color coordination of the wiring and hoses is pure art in action.

Why in the world would a woman want Jewlery and Wardrobes when they could have something as beautifl as this?

It's beyound me?
