  • 79 cj7

    well i now get to restart my 79 cj project. I just finnished my boys ( 2- both 16 ) trucks 85 s10 and 87 ranger . Now its time for the jeep. I picked up an 87 yj tub and frame last week and have it stripped down in the garage. It dosnt look like a bad upgrade but things are always harder than it looks. Well here is a pic of what i started with and i'll post more as the project progresseshttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...s/P2170009.jpg

    Don't let the YJ tub ordeal get you down bro, it isn't a hard swap at all. I am in the process of doing mine now and she's about back in the road.

    Keep us up to date with some pictures!

      It's good to see someone bringing an old jeep back! There seem to be a lot of people rebuilding their jeeps now. Keep us updated with pics.

            Looks great. Does your Jeep have quadratrac? I'm just curious why the rear differential is so far to the passenger side.

            Keep up the good work.

              ya its the quadratrac auto trans. This is going to be the betterhalfs jeep so im not going to extreame. Just a one inch body lift, one inch lift shackles and 31 or 32 inch sneakers.

                Sounds like a plan!

                          Looking good. Did you consider the shackle reversal for the front end?
