Newbie from Kansas.
Just wanted to say hi and drop a line on my project. I bought a 2000 Wrangler Sahara Edition tub and frame only. The frame was bent from the accident that it was in so it will be scrapped. I bought a 1995 Wrangler rolling chassis to replace it. I am building a rock crawler and I wanted to go somewhat inexpensive for the suspension and that is why I wanted a YJ frame. Plans are to have a locked Dana 60 front end, locked corporate 14 rearend, small block Chevy with fuel injection, full cage, suspension seats, hydraulic assist steering, Hummer H1 double beadlock wheels with 44" tires, th400 trans, and front and rear stinger bumpers.

Welcome to the forum. That's sounds like one helluva project!

Your neighbor will be checking in shortly. I think he can give you some guidance in that build. :D

Thanks for the link Simple Scout. Are spectators allowed? Unfortunately my project will not be ready for it! I've been out there several times but I have never been there for an event.

MR.CLIFFORD 08-28-2007 03:31 PM

Absolutely. Spectating is free. I'm hoping to make it there in my piece o' dookey. :D

duner440 08-28-2007 04:52 PM

Is that your piece of dookey in your sig there? Yeah, that thing is a pile!

Scout 08-28-2007 04:54 PM

It stinks too. :D

AND! It's a two wheel drive. :eek:

duner440 08-28-2007 05:53 PM those are fighting words!!!

MR.CLIFFORD 08-28-2007 06:04 PM

I only play in 2WD when scout follows. That slows the amount I have to pull the strap.

just looking at your into quads/atv's by any chance?

duner440 08-28-2007 06:49 PM

Yeah, I have had several atvs. I ride on dunes all over the U.S. I just recently sold my Yamaha Banshee. I wanted to start on this Jeep project so I can have my family with me. I want to have it done for the spring hopefully. Then I will start on another atv project. Do you ride?

A fellow Kansan
Welcome duner440, I'm a little closer to your area. I grew up south of Horton, and now live just west of Atchison. Welcome to the forum.:wavey:

duner440 08-31-2007 08:29 AM

Oh, cool! Thanks.
