Amazing build. I'm speechless at how good the quality of work you're putting into it is. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Update Time. I apologize for the poor quality pictures. I didn't have my camera yesterday, so I just used my Blackberry.

My dad and I finished the assembly of the cage and it is fully welded.



I also welded up the brackets that secure the front two points.



Roll of dimes.

oy... you don't want to rush perfection

Be a shame to do all that awesome work and duff it on the "finish" type stuff...

No worries....

I'm not one to rush the details....That's the contributing factor in why it's not done yet...Ha

Great job on the build, can't wait to see the finished project. I just hope you don't "over build it" so it becomes a trailer queen.

I think trailer queen is a poor term to use....

My dad and I started this build with the intent to build a wheeler and a driver....Then it became nicer and nicer...And we got to thinking about how we never see classic Jeeps at car shows....We both like stuff that is different that you don't typically see.

But that doesn't mean that we won't use it as a Jeep...I still plan on pulling my Sylvan Sport Go trailer with it when I go camping next year. And do some light exploring with it. But I doubt the Jeep will ever see a lot mud or rocks....

I see it as an excuse to buy another CJ that I can actually wheel.

You are absolutely right the jeep mentality sort of precludes it... anyone who saw it at a show would likely start imagining taking it off road

I for one think it's a good idea... trailer away!

I meant trailer queen as in scared to drive except for sunny days, not taking the chance on going out topless and getting caught in the rain, like normal stuff. It's 2 nice for rocks and deep mud, I agree you don't have to tear it up, but still be able to enjoy it on light trails and get a little dirty

Jeep looks great. Keep up the good work. Love the bumpers. Would love to put one like that on our 7. If you you can let us know how you made them.

Thanx Mono

The bumpers were made from 2X4 tube. I did a pie cut on the ends, used clamps to close the gap, welded it shut and capped the ends.

We're going to do all of the bodywork and prep....Greg Dowell is going to paint it. He is the same guy who painted Millet's cars including the Chevelle.


Thank you everyone for the support! More progress will be posted on Monday. We're probably going to cut the rear passenger side corner out this weekend and repair it with new metal along with maybe try to close up the transmission access panel.

Pictures! Again, I didn't have my camera...So I used my Blackberry.

We trimmed the rocker panels to the radius of the wheel well. The passenger side needs a little more hammer and dolly work...No big deal though.






What our ghetto transmission access panel looks like....We won't need that kind of accessibility, plus it's ugly...So it's getting welded up.


Getting cleaned up for welding.


A patch piece we made to clean looks up.


Same piece but looking from the firewall side.


We ran out of gas for the welder at this point....So it ended our day...


My dad and I hope to get in the garage this week to finish the tunnel....

Partial update.

We worked in the garage yesterday. Managed to get the tunnel welded shut and ground down. We also finished the metal work on the firewall and it is primed for now.

I took some pictures, but the florescent lights and the dust from grinding made them look like crap. So I'll grab some more on Wednesday when I work on it next.

Thank you for the support!

lol, no biggie, but I actually do have a vested interest in it

My DJ is the same year, so I'm getting a wicked nice look at what is similar/different on a CJ.

Good stuff to know when I go looking for parts i.e. you've shown that a CJ floor is almost identical to a DJ, as well as the firewall and heater, but anything else tub related is not compatible...

You've also showed me that a CJ frame is not boxed (a DJ frame is).

and a few other nice little "good to know" things.

Incidentally... My steering is opposite my heater... it's MUCH easier, and I all of a sudden wonder what bonehead didn't put the heater on the other side, so that the PITA "both on one side" model would be the oddball and not the main model...

I should point out that the floor on my CJ is NOT original. It was cut out and replaced years ago (with crummy looking welds from an oxy acetylene torch).

Jeep did a lot of weird stuff in this era...I suspect it is because of the Kaiser-AMC change....It created a bunch of bast*rd children with goofy combinations of parts.

If you need any specific pictures of anything, let me know. I would be more than happy to get them for you.
