This build may take a turn this winter. Currently looking for a early full width Dana44 from a ford. Picked up a large bearing 9" a couple years ago. Time to use it on something. Thinking those axles stuffed with 4.88s or 4.56s, spool in rear, locked frt, 37s on this lift.

So a few weeks back my wife's 2004 WJ was totaled. Leaving me with every part I needed for mine. First parts to make it to my chassis are the doors, headlights and grille. ( I just like the look of the 04 grille)
With all the swapped parts I will be spraying it Satin Toupe.

Also had a chance to mount my CB from my XJ. Made a tab that shares a radio mount.
