I am putting up a 37-38" tires im thinking what would be the best wheel base for this build. its has to be drivable on the streets and hard trail. Should i retain the original wheel base? For the jeep to be stable and capable of climbing

Nounting the engine with the tranny.

Nissan patrol y60 seems to have big transmission


Engine bay still has room


Welded the engine support brackets

We custom made a cross member to fit and support the transmission. It has a portal design for the propeller and additional strength

This inspired me. Got it from a friends magazine.



As of now 06/20/2017



My mechanic suggests a two link with a panhard (stock configuration of a patrol) to hold the differential. Dont have any idea on this. Maybe you guys have a design on this and are the air shocks good for this?

I see you're back at it with another build. Good for you!

I sure hope the Jeep body was level before using a level to cut. I've seen people make that mistake with bus conversions!
