Re: The big strip has begun!

These were used as a spare for some commanders. They are 17" and pretty basic.

Re: The big strip has begun!

Had to know just how much clearance I needed between the top of the Grand's wishbone and the underside of the guard. Cant just measure it as you dont know how much the bumpstop is going to compress. So I thought the best way was to drop it 1.5 foot off a engine crane and see have much it compressed some Blutac I built up on top of the wishbone.
Did it a number of times and filmed the last one.



Turns out I have 1.5" spare above the wishbone.

Re: The big strip has begun!

The strip continues.


Stainless 2.75" exhaust and fuel tank is out.
Huge muffler makes it way too quiet so wont be using it.


Cut the windscreen out. Then cut it up with my 9" grinder with a diamond blade. Next time though I will wear more than just shorts and sandals as was picking out the glass splinters from under my toes!


Like the arms on the rear axle. Nice and strong with decent sized bushes. Glad the arms are not the pressed tin ones.


Back end is clear of everything now. I can pick the whole rear up quite easily with all the weight of the engine forward of the front stands.

Re: The big strip has begun!

Still undecided on body colour yet. Want to use a Willys or Jeep colour to keep it 'in the family'.
Looking at maybe at the new 2011 Wrangler.


or the Jeep Rescue colour.


or a darker green in the Commander concept.


another shot in th different lighting.

Re: The big strip has begun!


Got the coil overs out tonight.


The radiator is pretty big and planning on using it. The AC/ core also has the trans cooler in the top half and the power steering cooler sits in front of that again. The fan is run off the steering pump with electric control by the ECU.
Pretty deep though all up at around 9"


With the radiator out can finally see the Hemi!


Most of this will be hidden under the engine cover.

Re: The big strip has begun!

I did not realize you work dealing with the Hemi. This keeps getting better!! Keep it up, we are all on the edges of our seats.

I kind of like the orange color for some reason. The dark green may fit better with the retro look though.

Re: The big strip has begun!

I'd say paint it orange. It looks faster.

Re: The big strip has begun!

Holy moses now that's dedication! Thanks for sharing this with us. It's simply genius! Love the old willy pick ups. So to see one somewhat modernized will be amazing.
I'm all for dark green
