"Rudy" My CJ build

This build is named after my Grandfather who passed a few years ago. A real stellar guy who was just an amazing person.

Here's the story. I had an 02 black TJ that I think is on here somewhere and is my Avatar pic. Well about three years ago I rolled that bitch 6 times down near Mexico and almost died. It was nuts. I only had a stock roll bar and I survived. Luckily I had a ton of my buddies there and they got me out.

Fast forward a six months after that I bought a 77 CJ7. 304AMC with some other goodies. Well the military relocated me to RI from sunny San diego(I'm originally from MA).

Plans for the build
-custom frame
-Dana60
-14Bolt
-Sm465 mated to NP205
-very healthy 350ci SBC
-4link rear
-3link front w/panhard
-16" 2.5 king coilovers all around
-2.0 king bump stops

I'll post where I'm at later today. Standby

Before the test down and the tear down. The entire frame and undercarriage was sold. I only kept the body, fenders, and windshield.

Some work on the rear axle. I think I'm going to use a different one though because this 14 bolt has an offset pinion.

Turned down the ring gear, made a slot in the bottom plate to fit the ring gear. Pre heated the cast then welded it all up.

More pics. I had to re tap the kingpin threads since I boogered them up. Then I used a 5 foot cheater bar to torque the kingpins down. I'm not sure how much but I pushed pretty hard.

The lower rails are 2x6 .188 wall or 3/16 and the uppers are 2x4 .188 or 3/16. 2x6 is really the was to go when you a building a frame IMHO since it will just make it a hell of a lot easier to get a flat belly without having to replace the entire floor pan because your trans and t case won't hit your body. Or you could use 2x4 and do a body lift or just let your driveline hang down...

Listen there's a bunch of ways to do this and this is the route I took.

I used my old Lincoln tombstone welder to weld the rails. And I used 11080 rod... Ya they use that shit for industrial applications it should hold up nicely. The weld joint it probably strong than the steel now.

And make sure you use the entire rod

Bent up some tube and started to Fab up some shock hoops. As these updates progress you will notice my father's garage gets more and more messy. And do you see the beer? Always take beer brakes.

Started to mock up the links and the transmission. Your goal should be to make these AS LONG as possible in short. There is a whole lot of math that goes into a link suspension in relation to how it rides and drives.

Starting to Fab up the tranny mount. The yoke on the front output shaft was a close fit.

Here I am with an old Chevy 350 block mocking up the engine.

Then I burned in some mounts from some .120 wall DOM with poly bushings. It should work well enough

Ok and you are now all caught up. The Jeep should be done by September 21st or at least running and driving so stay tuned.

There's a bunch of other little stuff I got done but I don't have pictures so I'll post them when I take pictures.

Other than that there is just a ****ing mountain of parts and steel tubing in the garage getting ready to be used.

No more updates until labor day weekend

Ok it's mid night and I've been working hard on this thing. Don't have much to say but the front wheels are on and it's almost ready to roll on the front. I have to put the rear axle in and I will be able to roll it around.

The steering gear box mount is a pain and I'm working to have no bump steer. This shit just takes so much time. Maybe I should have bought a JK.

This is awesome! Looking forward to see how it turns out! I would love to put my fab skills to the test by doing a project like this but it would be pretty difficult under the carport at my apartments. Maybe some other time. Good luck on the build! That thing will be badass!

This thing is so much work. It is crazy how difficult it is to build something like this from scratch. I often go to bed and wake and thinking about the jeep.

I go to pick up the engine this weekend. If you noticed in the pictures my block is just well... A block. I was using it for mock up purposes. It's going to have a hopped up Chevy 350. I'm hoping to get 450ft/lbs at the flywheel and 380hp.

I also started to work on the exhaust. It's going to have short length headers with 1.75 runners i think they were and 2.5" pipes all the way back to glass packs since I'm trying to save a little money. I'll end up changing them out later but this is going to be loud!!!

Another update. The 350 going in the Jeep has been cast aside. I'm stepping up to a 400ci sbc that will be about 406-410 by the time it's done. Should be a fire breathing monster. I can't wait

More updates!

I have been cutting and drilling fish plates for a frame the past few days. I had to re fab the read shock hoops, it was a huge PITA but i got it done. I also need to move the front shock hoops back. They are just to far forward and i dont feel like cutting up the grill. So they need to get adjusted.

I will be fabbing up the rear bumper this weekend and doing the body mounts too. Id like to get the front shock hoops moved back 6" but i dont think it will happen this weekend. Check that, it wont get done this weekend.

I ended up purchasing a factory clutch pedal assembly because my gucci wilwood universal pedal wont work. Ill save that for another project.

My goal for the next month is to get all the fab and welding done for everything below the body so i can get it all painted before winter comes. My biggest struggle is the sway bars front and rear. Space is becoming a commodity.

You know what i first started this project i actually though i could finish it in 6 months... lower and lower your expectations until you succeed.

I will add some more pics this weekend for anyone who is following this thread.

There aren't as many, how do I say this nicely..."wheelers/builders" here on WF. But they are here, in the crawl space hiding and watching some are building shit too!

Better have some action shots when its under its own power!

Haha! I don't know if anyone here has made it over the the dark side yet. I eventually made the transition over. Which is ok because they are assholes. But the nicest assholes you will ever meet lol.

I just want to keep these forums alive. Since I don't use social media. I don't like the book of faces.

This thing is going to see a lot of skinny pedal.

Killer looking project! Wish I had the time and coin to build another hardcore rig. I'm currently in a bolt on rig but having a blast with it as money and time are tight these days. Keep the pics coming.

As requested more pics. I just put the body back on to make the rear bumper. Im probably going to hack the body up so the tailgate actually bolts to the bumper. I want to keep the body as low as possible because at full bump right now I'm at 19.5" I don't want a big body lift.

I want it slammed as low as possible. The panhard bar right now is what is limiting the bump. I would have to notch the frame to get down lower or build a bent panhard.

But then I would have to change the shock mounts. I dunno we will see what I'm gonna do.

Here you can see a 3" gap between the body and the frame. Since I don't have a mandrel bender that can bend 2x4 .188 wall I am going to have to cut the frame a bit then weld on some 2x4 on the under side and have the bumper come out under the body

You are doing nice work. I will follow along. You had mentioned notching the frame for the panhard ... is there a reason you are against that idea? As long as you box it back in around the notch it won't cause much structural compromise. After all you are using .188.

Its just a lot of work to notch the frame. Not to sound lazy but this whole thing is... a lot of work. I will probably end up notching the frame and giving myself more up travel and using TMR customs new 1" offset heims to give myself the clearance i need and even more up travel. if you get the chance check them out. They are gucci!

There is so much on the jeep that needs to get done that its actually kind of nice because i can pick and choose what i want to work on when i want to work on it. But most of the time i just sit around and look at it for a few hours and drink beer

I have seen the offset heims. They are a really good idea that I am sure solve some problems for people. I hear you with the amount of work to build one from the ground up. Mine took 4 years, but my kids were little then and life did not allow a ton of shop time. One thing at a time and it will get done.

Oh man im gonna be in a lot of trouble if mine takes that long haha.

One thing is for sure that i will never under take something like this ever again unless i get divorced. It takes to much time and its a lot to juggle everything. Not to mention i always have to hear how my jeep is never done and the financial burden.

I just try to convince my buddies to bring their jeep around so i can work on them. But then my buddies sold their jeeps so im all alone haha.

I would like a CJ2A or 3A to put around town. maybe in like 5 years

And i cant ever see myself selling this thing once its done unless i receive a stupid amount of money from some rich man.
