  1. I've decided I'm not going to run a hood on the Shoptruck. So the engine is gonna need to look pretty good. I matched the color of the Torque Thrust wheels for the block itself. I also picked up an aluminum radiator.
  2. Thanks Everyone, I'm pretty stoked about it. If we can score some tickets to SEMA next year the plan is to drive it from WV to NV hitting parts of RT 66 along the way.
  3. Found a low mileage ZJ motor to drop in, but first it's gonna need gaskets and paint.
  4. Got the tires and wheels mounted up this morning.
  5. The interior will be like my Golden Eagle MJ and will be converted over to 97+
  6. The rear will remain sprung under with an add a leaf and a small cut. The front gets a Stinkyfab longarm kit with 3 inch coils and ACOS for fine tuning.
  7. Lots of gear calculators on the internet, can't remember which one I used.
  8. The plan is a 33 in the rear with a 31 up front with staggered gearing. The tires showed up yesterday.
  9. The plan for the Jeep is similar to this truck but we will be converting it to 4wd, the stance will be similar.
  10. My brother Jon and I have already started cleaning up the rust and even got the doors painted with Bain Jeep Salvage. The wheels are just rollers and will not be used.
  11. Picked up this rusty MJ a little over a year ago in central PA. I've built a few MJs over the years but I've always wanted to do a Shoptruck/Gasser style MJ and I think this one is perfect.
  12. Yeah, my wife is always reminding me that I can't keep them all, I sure wish I could though.
  13. Finished prepping the floors today and I gotta say the floors in this truck are in way better shape than The Eagle. Hopefully this is the last of the rust conversation.
  14. Cleaned the bed out today and was happy to find the inside of the bed in as good of shape as the bottom.
  15. Took advantage of the sunshine today to pressure wash the underside of The new Manche. I did find a bad spot in the x Crossmember when I dropped the spare tire but other than that I was very happy with the unibody on this MJ. It's gonna make someone a nice daily driver.
