nick50471 Added the BBC to my YJ model along with some headers and the front plate. The whole idea of modeling the Jeep is to see problems before fabrication. Well I have issues. I have found that my original plan to go with 18" travel ORI struts and set them up to use 6" up travel and 12" of down travel may not work that well. The up travel is going to be a problem with the front drive shaft hitting the oilpan. So I am going to 4" up and 14" down.

I also will need to lower my one-link skid to accommodate the monster gearbox.

I would also like to move the motor up. This may be difficult. I already will lift the body 2" and will not lift it any higher. I may cut the firewall and tranny tunnel and move them up. More to come on this.

The BBC is a bit longer and even tucked way back into the firewall I may need to stretch the front out to make room for the radiator.

I hear ya, it's a good look. Puts it in the Unlimited tub look which is cool.

nick50471 Sorry fellas. This thread won't get updated all that often. Since they took Tapatalk away posting on WF will be very limited. I don't use my laptop all that often for surfing.
