You're at the top of the list. ;-) I should be concentrating on the buggy and the old Bug. However, it will make a decent little Waverunner puller so those times I don't want to use The Beast for such light duty.

Awesome project jeep! Put a cheap LS motor in it, maybe upgrade the diffs, lift it, and it's a great Baja car. My first trips exploring Baja were in my bros CJ7. Ran like crap, locking hubs didn't work, u-joints were going out, but hell of a lot of fun driving in Baja. But HOT with the bikini top and open doors in August!

Thanks! No LS for this project. Less than 80k and the engine purrs. Moser rear axles at some point. Time to button this up soon and get back to more pressing projects.

Finished rear frame reinforcing, blasted, cleaned and coated the inside of the frame, built a better exhaust hanger setup, installed the custom crossmember and installed the hitch. Picked up YJ half doors too.
