while i have been gathering parts for my monster truck, i also gathered up parts for a new trail ride...
i love the flat fender jeep, so thats what i had to have.  i have most of the parts on hand, so i guess ill start a thread now...  i am still working on the Monster, but i usually only have time on the weekends for it as its half an hour away from the house...  the jeep is at the house, so its much easier to work on it.

so i drug home a cj2a tub

little mock up with some 53" 
frame donor

bringing the chassis home

powerplant is a ford 2.3 turbo engine, axles are carraro planetary axles with a 16.5 to 1 ratio

grabbed up a steering column out of an endloader heading to scrap

worked on the rollarounds for a little bit today...

came up with this...  gonna have 4 tabs welded on to hold the wheel to the planet...  the original wheel centers were too heavy for my liking
