I actually bought it from a guy who pulled it from a 74 jeep j truck. I have to regear it but I have all those parts waiting on me to install the heavy thing!

Ok so this steering bolt is hitting the leave spring in the passenger side when I try to turn the steering wheel?

Any ideas?

I am faced with an option. On craigslist I found 37" irocs on steelies. I am wondering if they are just too big. I could try to trade my 35s for them. Thoughts? I also just scored mopar floor pans, brand new, for $30. Sweet!

They might be. You have a 30/8.8 right?

37s on the d30 is askin for trouble in the long or short term. I would stick w 35s. The difference isn't enough to be worth the $ in repairs down the road. I was at the same decision and I'm building a front axle to run the bigger tires.

I fixed 8 of the body mounts today. The drivers side floor pan has been replaced. The passenger side floor pan was cut out. All rust has been sprayed with 3 coats of rust converter. I have to trim the passenge side floor pan and weld it in. I also transferred the fuel lines off the old frame and onto the rolling chassis. I cut up the old frame to take to the scrap yard. All that it left on the tub are the two rear body mounts plus the passenger side floor pan. Then...on the rolling chassis! Hopefully it can all be completed this week.

Sounds like progress. Rust is one thing I can't stand.
