Got to get the TJ-6 (a 98 TJ that was cut and stretched 15”) ready for the TJ REAR fender marketing campaign. Getting a AW4 auto, going through the 231, pulling the rear Detroit and installing an ARB.

Squint Love this build by the way. It does look more like a shorter CJ6 whereas the LJ looks like a cross between a CJ6 and a CJ8. Love this look and the LJs equally.

Squint In 03 AEV did a run of 5 long wheel base TJs. My buddy almost bought this one recently but someone beat him to it. It was really beatiful in person and had about 4 or 5 extra inches than the LJ. The custom buckets seats, front and rear were amazing and tons of room behind the rear seats.
These pics were taken when we were looking at it...

elclipo Dude this build is inspiring. And to see it all done with a 110 welder gives me hopes for the future lol

MCE Jason Sorry for not being around much! I miss the free time that I had 3 years ago! Mike and I have been crazy busy. I will be posting up more starting todayJ The jeep has had some progress over the last 8 weeks in preparation for EJS. It got a Clayton long arm installed and seems to work very well. We did the install for a TV show PNW Customs! https://www.facebook.com/mce.jason?r...ustoms?fref=ts
I also am installing some ARB’s, rebuilding the t-case, reworking the wheels. Pictures will be up soon.
On a personal note, I am in need of new left and right knees and having a hard time with the clutch. I have an AW4 that I will be installing after the EJS/ rear TJ, YJ, CJ mold builds. I am planning on setting it up with no TCM (manual shift). Baja
So things are happening and I really appreciate the support from all of you!
Feel free to check us out on Facebook too, I go by MCE JasonJ https://www.facebook.com/mce.jason?r...mn#!/mce.jason (We are involved in a ARB JK build for EJS this year……. )

I have wheeled it from Moab to the very tight timber of WA. I love the wheel base. I would do it all the same again! I would consider adding 2” more by pushing the front axle out. It also is very nice to drive and pull a trailer with. Good Luck!!!!!

MCE Jason The TJ-6 is up for sale. I never thought I would sell this jeep, but I am a builder not a collector. I will be taking a loss on it, this is fine with me if it goes to the right home. If you are interested I am taking offers at modernclassicent@gmail.com.
It is time to build again……….
Thanks,

If so, you should bring this for the magazine guys to notice.

Sounds like a plan

Thnx

I moved the seat back splitting the added 15” up, added 5” in front of seat and 10” behind.
Wile 15” does not sound like much it is significant. I can now fit 4 full sized people, gear and a cooler. It really has worked out well for family 4x4 trips and extended backwoods adventures.

Thanks for the complements
