Progress has begun...

I went ahead and put the 14 bolt (its big) in the rear so it won't be completely crippled for a while.

Plan is to build the front 60 first. Was planning on 4.88 but I think I have a line on some 5.13's

Does anyone know if the spacer on the driverside kingpin is factory??? Need to remove that.

Cut all brackets off and make an extensive order from ballistic or artec.

14 bolt is getting similar treatment afterwards with a shave kit and disc brakes. Waiting to do the 300 till she sits on her own weight. Don't really like getting under it on jackstands. Should be fun... and should be ready to go for the first ride!!!

Also picked up a Jaz 18 gallon (i think) fuel cell as partial trade for my old axles so that's going to be worked into the schedule too.

Made a healthy order for the front 60 from TMR Customs today.

Link Brackets
Chevy 3/4 ton Disk brake conversion kit

Hopefully get the front done in the next two weeks.

Update... Tcase dropped at Andy's for assembly, front is under the Jeep to get brackets in place.

Hoping to have a roller in a week or so.

Dang high steer arms are going to be like 3-4 more weeks, but hoping they send someone for the install!!! Haha.

Looking into fuel systems... Any suggestions for pumps, regulators, lines??? Right now I think I'm looking at a Warboro is I think the name of it. As an external in-line pump.

Sorry for the crappy pics... It was getting dark.

Now I'm starting to dread having to find wheels and tires for this thing. $$$ :idea:

Haha why can't we all be content with 33" tires???

I didn't get any pictures... Sorry.

We have a roller!!! It sitting on 40's!!! Need to get the sawzaw fired up or a "bfh" to make room.

Need to finish weld the front and make trac bar bracket. High steer from Branik should be ready soon.

Dana 300 has been completely rebuilt... Thanks Andy Getz!

Coming together. I'll get pics up sometime this week.

Fits in the garage by about an inch clearance of the door.

Measured outside tire to outside tire at 7ft... 2" wider than the fenders on my trailer. The tiresom using for rollers are 17" wide though.

So in amendment to the prior post I am declaring "Goldilocks" a success... sort of :jester:

I think the repairs would be too extensive and costly when I was really only hoping it lasted me another 3 months.

Build plans are in the works currently for the buggy. Ill get a new post going of the tear down

Tear down will commence this weekend.

Andy - if you want the motor out of the cherokee you can have it for a bit or Ill sell it to you on the cheap.
