Thank you everyone for the encouragement!

We decided on using 35" BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A Km2 Tires on 12.5" aluminum rims that are pictured earlier in the thread. We have yet to order tires....But it'll be soon.

Just out of curiosity, why did you make the roll cage go all the way back like that? For safety and so you could put a seat in the back?

You called it. Also, we will never have a top on this except for a bikini top. But a custom full-span safari top is getting made once it's on the road. The rear passenger will probably appreciate the extra wind and sun protection. Ha

I am amazed at the very nice balance you obtained between the custom fabrication and the retention of the stock jeep. As I mentioned I too have a 71 CJ5 I purchased new here in Phoenix so I KNOW about all the stock pieces you retained that most dont, like the heater box and ducting, the rod to hold up the hood, back up lights, side marker lights, etc...I love your jeep. As I see your interested in functionality, I am curious about one item, the spare tire. I see you filled in the original holes for the original position, are you considering a rear mount or possibly top of roll cage mount?
cheers,

Bill in Phoenix

Just a small update...

My dad and I pulled the transmission and the transfer case out Saturday afternoon to fix a leak we had between the transmission and the bell housing. We found the oil was weeping out of a pressed in plug on the front on the case. We used some silicone and a homemade gasket to try to correct it....We'll find out if it worked after we top off the transmission with oil...

We discovered a water leak while we were getting the cooling system ready...There is a steady stream of water leaking from the driver's side water pump port behind the timing cover....Looks to have the wrong gasket installed....Woo...

I started to refinish the set of aluminum wheels we have, but I can't see myself restoring these wheels by hand...So I have a buffer pad set coming from Eastwood. Should make things much less tedious.

But good news is that we are getting very close to firing the engine. I can't wait to finally hear this thing run!

As I was reading your update, all I could think was, "They'll figure it out." Keep at it, man. Can't wait to see those wheels!

My dad picked up a tire from TireRack while he was off on business. We'll use this one to mockup the spare tire carrier and to check clearances in the fenderwells. The exhaust might even get in the way. Haha

wow, those 35's are monsters. Not only may the exhaust be in the way, how bout the gears in the rear to drive them. When I purchased my 71 in 1970, I was pleasantly surprised to find 4.89 gears. Within the week I went down and purchased a 0.7:1 Warn overdrive which is still present and gives me an awesome range of gears for both highway and offroad. Keep up the fantastic posts and work
cheers,
Bill

There wasn't any interference with the tire and the exhaust. But we are going to add mufflers after it's running, and when we do that, we will cut some of the length out of it and cut the tip so it exits closer to the body.
