Nice, you know that TJ's aren't real jeeps though........
j/k. I had a YJ and people used to tell me the same thing. Are you putting D44's in the front/rear/both? Here's my project CJ. It's a 79' with: model 20 / D30, spicer 20 case, granny low 4speed, and 258 I-6. It has 46,000 miles yet the body is completely rusted out. I have a AMC 401 v-8 for it that i'm building to run 750 hp with a fogger Nos kit. I'll probably build the model 20 and put a 9 inch up front with lockers and 4.10's. Right now it's lifted 4" and has 33" Super Swampers but that's going to change to some 14" paddles and deep dish wheels.
Not to thread jack, it's a 1971 Honda ATC 90 the very first year ATV ever made. The engine has never been rebuilt, just the carb about 100 times. Even the tires are original and the color is parrot green. It was $400 new and is worth $1000's now.
No, I actually have the complete motor. It's torn down waiting to go to the machine shop. Cool thing about the AMC motors, the displacement is cast into the side of the block so there is no "bluffing" in what you've got. I also have a 1991 K5 Blazer that I just picked up a few months ago. I replaced the heads, radiator, battery, locking hubs, and gave it a cleaning it hasn't had in years. I have to snap some pics when I get a chance. I got the Blazer so I can wheel until I get the jeep on the road (which will be a while).
And I wasn't dissing your jeep, I LOVE jeeps, and this is my third one
I envy you Devil Dog..
But I do have one of these waiting to be shipped to me here in Bosnia...
1978 Bronco 400M-C6-9" all stock and previously owned by a master mechanic.. Picked it up last year for $1500 no rust...
Ought to be perfect for the snowy roads to the ski trails here in Sarajevo.
