Well, I was going to build a cherokee but my friend had this comanche body sitting in his yard. After some negotiating I had my MJ. It has the following:

 

6.5" RC Coils

RC adjustable control arms

16" treadwright 33" tires - GoodYear MTR knockoffs

Spring over axle rear with 1.5" cherokee lift shackles(.75" lift)

Welded Dana 35 - Spare shafts in Tool Box

Dana 30 with Aussie Locker - Spares in Box

C-Rok steering box brace

Bobbed Bed

Decided to do a little cutting after having some bad rubbing on the front fenders:

This was the hardest thing to do. I bought and built this to wheel, not restore, so after going wheeling the first time I knew the bed had to be bobbed. We are not finished with it yet but this is where I am at right now. I can't decide if I want to use my tailgate again so for now I put some temp lights up. A bumper and tire carrier is coming soon. I am thinking some 2x4 or 2x6 welded to the frame, and then wrapped around the rear qtrs. Whatever we do it will look good.

And lastly here are a couple video's from my first wheeling trip.

Cleaned up that rear frame a bit. Added a piece of 3/16 - 1x3 tube and cleaned and painted everything. I am going to build some type of bumper off this. I also cut my rear quarters, and painted my front bumper.
