Greetings from South Texas
 
well like it says i am from Texas and i have a 1985 CJ-7 if you read my sig u will see that there is only the body frame that is technically a jeep. it has been converted to mostly Ford parts
for the drive train (engine, tranny,and transfer case) and has a Dodge axles on it.

as we all know it starts with one simple mod and a friend that owns a shop. when i bought the Jeep it was nice, then i ordered up a Pro Comp 4" stage II lift and some 33" Super Swampers, then one of my friends gave me a 8.8 axle form a Ford Explorer and i swapped it into the Jeep.

Now what you see below is my current build and should be done shortly after this post. Engine, tranny, and Transfer Case are in already, now the rest

Motor : 1986 Ford Mustang 302 shorty headers 2 1/2" pipe with
duel Flowmasters dumpped at the axle

Tranny
& : Ford T-4 Four speed with a Dana 300 w/ tera low 4:1
Transfer
case

Differentials : Dodge DANA 60 front Mile Marker locking hubs
4.10 gears and waiting on my OX locker

Dodge DANA 60 rear 4.10 gears 35 spline axles
waiting on OX locker

Suspension : Custom Double Triangulated Fourlink Front and
Rear With Fox 2.0 16" travel Air Shox in each
corner.

Wheels
and : 16.5x12 Black Rock Krawler wheels with
Tires 39.5/15/16.5 Super Swamper TSL's
