  • Jeremy's CJ

    So I've been working on my buddy Jeremy's CJ rock crawler project for the last year or so and figured I should probably post up a build thread. Specs are listed below. We are hoping to have the maiden voyage at the Catskills Jeep Jambo this September.

    YJ frame chopped in front of the motor mounts and behind the rear links
    AMC 360
    TF999
    5.0 Atlas
    1350 Shafts
    Full Float Dana 60 rear (35 spline, spool)
    Dodge Dana 60 front (35 spine inner and outers, spool, high steer, double ended ram)
    37 inch red label Krawlers
    14 inch air shocks front and rear
    1.5 Chromoly cage
    Boatsided and dove tailed


    The cage is mostly done. Rolled tube .120 wall chromoly with some .095 wall dom for interior peices.



    Built out the front frame and mounted the air shocks



    Narrowed the grill and fabbed the front bumper



    Fabbed the rear bumper and machined a clevis block out of 1 inch plate



    Mounted the radiator and starting to mock up the fuel cell



    Orbital and adjustable column mounted



    Double ended ram, track bar and grill hoop with the winch mounted behind the grill (fairlead intergrated into the bumper)



    Gratuitous flex shots for suspension cycling

    Wow. Lean & mean. I love the bumper & rolled cage.

    What is the capacity of that fuel cell?

                  Wow, everything about that rig is sweet especially like the cage, the low profile and the shortened CJ Grill.

                    Got back in the shop today. Final finished up the door bars. I haven't been happy with my previous designs. Really like how these turned out.



                    Next up is the console, dash and shifters.

                        Got back in the shop this evening. Started working on the console and the dash. The console will house the trans shifter, t-case shifters and the cutting brake. Gauges will probably end up on the left and right of the steering wheel. Basically Oil temp, water temp, trans temp and Volts. The center will get a 6 inch Lowrance and under the passanger side will be a collection of relays for all the electrical.

                        Tube work



                        Started laying in painters tape so I can cut out aluminum for the panels

                          Kev, what's the process with the tape? Why not use cardboard?
