A lot of the advice I got was sound. Thanks. This is the redesign. I still keep the 103-105 inch wheelbase, eliminate a lot of the overhang, minimize how far forward the tub will be moved, increase the legroom in back, increase the rollcage strength. Later

One small thing...you won't be able to run those matching nice rear bucket seats without trimming the rear wheelhouses...same amount of space (36") between them as a CJ-7. Mine will be very similar minus the rear door openings.

Since it will be running full size or near full size axles the wheels will be moved out a bit. This should allow me to "trim" the wheelwells so that they are not so wide. This will give me more than the 36" I need to put in twin bucket seats in the rear. Later

I absolutly love it this is something I've had on my mind for a while now (also a convertable suberban, but thats a different story) I wondor if my CJ-6 would be a good candidate for a custom like this beings it already has the leg room? Thanks for the visual though, I probably won't sleep now with the perverbial wheels turning> Thanks

Acutally, your 6 tub isn't all THAT much different from the 8 that this is modeled after, 'cept no rear overhang (which appears to be bobbed in the 2.0 version anyway). No reason you couldn't apply similar principles to the 6. Make no mistake, it'd be a full-on custom job. But, it would be ultra cool not only because it's unique, but because it's a FUNCTIONAL improvement. Very /wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif!

Thanks TEX I appreciate the good words , I've been messing with a paper and pencil and have a pretty good concept going myself (just no neat photo...yet) I'll make sure to let you guys see it first chance I get.

Thanks

My only qualm is that tose back doors will be a PITA (Pain in the You know where) to get into.. how about a countersunk step there?? like a half circle cut into the body, flat side down, and then a cover for it on the inside, just to make it easier.
Looks GREAT
