    Been getting after it lately. Finally started cutting away the old tub. Almost all of the frame side body mounts are shot, but the frame is in extremely good shape considering how rusty the tub was. I will need to find a new windshield frame, as it is very rusty around the wiper motor

    Its been a while since i updated yall, but ive been doing the slow boring work of dismantling the rig. I finally got it down to tbe frame so be watching for some work getting done. I need to relocate my rear shackle mounts to accept the xj springs, remove the trans and swap output shafts to the new trans, finish building the 360, burn in some new frame side body mounts, make a couple new cross members, boatside and comp cut the new tub, and do all the reassembly. I hope to get after this in a fast and furious manner. There is a ride coming up in april that i hope to use as a shakedown run.

    Sounds like a lot of work. Good to see you working on it again.

    Just a little update. I got the wheelbase set. It ended up sitting at 100.5". I got all the frame side body mounts cut off, waiting on brown santa to show up with the new. I welded in a new tubular cross member in place of the one forward of where the fuel tank was. I am in the process of pulling the t case and burnt up trans, then ill cut out the old chevy k10 trans cross member i was using and build a new one when the new trans goes in.

    Split the trans and t-case and found a bit of carnage. The lip that the snap ring seats in busted and20170304_013004_HDR.jpg the snap ring and what was left of the casting were dangling from the trans output shaft.

    Here's a little fyi. Automatic transmission clutches and steels are not supposed to look like this. Safe to say that trans was roached

    It was. I got 3 seasons out of it, and with the abuse it takes i think that's pretty good. Those are for 1st and 2nd. 3rd looked brand new, but i can probably count on my fingers the times its hit 3rd since this trans went in.
