I can't honestly say how many hours are invested...I can say a few thousand hours, easily. lol

UPDATE:

The CJ LIVES! And it is LOUD!

But I don't have a video of the first startup....I was at the Indy 500 Sunday and missed it.

But the Jeep is at home and we're getting a few things sorted out before we drive it. When we pulled the transmission and TA to fix the leak we had, something happened to the clutch...I think the fork is partially off the throw-out bearing....Hopefully we don't have to pull the tranny again.

But once we get everything sorted out, and we get the cam broken in the rest of the way, I'll get a video of it running, idling, and driving!

Stay tuned!

Welcome to the forum!

My dad and I ditched the worm-drive steering box in favor of a modern Chevrolet piece. If I can remember correctly, we used a kit from Advances Adapters. It came with the mounting brackets (which need welded in place). We also used a tilt column from a '70's Chevrolet pickup truck.

As far as mods go, we had to fabricate a custom mount for the column and one of the primary tubes on our longtube fenderwell headers had to be cut and changed because it interfered with the steering shaft.

I like everything you did to the Jeep but that roll bar has to go. It makes the Jeep a summer vehicle. If you would have designed the rollbar to allow a hard top to be installed you would end up with a more practical Jeep which you could drive daily. Why spend so much time and money for a summer driver? Jeeps should be enjoyed year round. Well, that is my thoughts. To each their own.

What? Dont know the man but I'll bet he built it with no intentions of it being practical.If he wants to play in the snow I say put on some Carhart coveralls,gloves and a warm hat!!"Why spend so much time and money for a summer driver?" Its called a passion. My guess is it turned out exactly as he planed.

Willie hit the nail on the head.

This project started as a weekend wheeler and a driver....But it progressively became what it is now...Kind of a 'hot rod' Jeep...It won't see any hard wheeling or rocks...

But. When it does snow, I'll be damned if I don't put on the snow mobile suit to go out and play. I don't need some silly hardtop to do that.

If my buddy ever gets me the pics he took of Hazzo's Jeep, he'll have some pretty good pics to post in the near future...my buddy has a habit of being extremely lazy and has yet to get them to me however. You guys need to nag at Hazzo to fix his tail light however...that Jeep looks and sounds badass...and he's driving around with the tail light out!!!!! WTF?!?! lol

Just a teaser photo... I've got the photo set on a CD. All in high-resolution...I'll get em to ya soon. There's a few pretty good ones in there that'll be worth framing.

My buddy was playing with his new DSLR and offered to use Hazzo's Jeep for some practice shots while he was still figuring the settings out...we hoped to get a more off-road looking setting but that was the best we could come up with on short notice.

I don't think he's checking this thread anymore, but as far as I know, the CJ is done...unless they decide to add-on or change some of their designs around a little...which with his dad is ALWAYS a possibility. lol

I've still got his photo set here...so if I get a chance, I'll go through and pick some good ones out and upload em here.
