Default '47 Willys Cj-2a

So, prolly premature but here is my latest acquisition:

1947 WILLYS CJ-2A, gotta get my ZJ sold then start building this.

Here's the plan:
4.3L Vortec coupled to a 4l60e & a Dana 300 with a 4:1 Gearset.
Stretch the wheelbase from 80 to 95-100
4 link double triangulated rear & Y link 3 link front
2" Airshocks all the way around, 16" stroke
Waggy 44 front, rear is going to be a 44 or a 9 inch
36-37" tire when its done

Basically going to be a buggy, tube frame all new floor and rear skins (still at least using the rear tailgate panel) with mechanical steering.

No room for other peoples stuff, but there is for mine!

If I get the check to finish that '55 Chevy this week like I was just told then I'll have 3 empty bays! Well, until the Tahoe comes in, and I just got a job doing Sami front and rear bumpers, and Shea got that YJ so busy busy busy!!!!!!!!!....................

Yeah I have been working so damn much I think mine is gonna be on the back burner for awhile. While it sucks I really do need to save cash for a house down payment. Maybe try to pick up some side jobs , and shit.

Not a bad idea, just needs to be a recent model from behind a 4.3. You'll see spec's change once the build starts. Everything is pure speculation at this point. Well stuff besides the tube frame and suspension setup and 4.3L. Really want to stick to the plans to use a Dana 300.

Started getting the Grand ready to sell lastnight. Already have a buddy that REALLY wants it. Wish I didn't have to sell it....................
