1990 one ton build

Hey guys, I'm just getting geared up for my one ton build, I'll update step by step with lots of pictures. This is my first build but I'm fairly confident as I am mechanically inclined. I've had the jeep for just over a year now, and have been waiting for the garage space to start the build ever since I picked it up!

Here's the plan. 2 bolt main 350sbc built with fairly lumpy cam, with sm465 four speed trans and matching gtg transfer case. '78/'79 ford Dana 60 axels with soa lift not sure what size tires but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

The Frame has been painted and tub has been redone with new steel (not my work)

Thanks for reading, I'll do my best to keep you all updated

Thanks, Clint

K finally got the jeep in the shop and did some small stuff like prepping for the motor and washing the salt off from the trip. My engine mounts are on the way and I'll be picking my trans and transfer case up within the next couple weeks.
