Thanks guys...I forgot to post this up to..

Its about 80" wide outside to outside tire, 75" to the top of the windshield which supprised me with it being SOA and on 37's, My YJ is ALOT taller like around 83 or something on the same tires, its about 23" at the bottom of the Tcase crossmember, 11" on the front 60, and 10" at the 14Bolt ( but Im going to trim it)...

Im open to any suggestions on this one, if its jacked up let me know before I get in too deep...

T18 for a t15..

Started the tranny swap today...Its working out ok I think..But I have a few questions Ill post up on the board and on pirate and maybe someone will know whats up...anyways here is some pics...
Here you can see how much longer the t18 is, alittle over 6 inches total, should improve the front driveline angle a bunch..


Clutch looks like its brand new from what I can tell:

Thats it for now...

Priceless...
I will try to make it for the run with this one, but I doubt it...If I go ( work pending) I will probably take the YJ...Id have to use my winch on the steep climbs, so I dont roll over backwards..Need to stretch the WB...I got the front ARB working in it now, it was a bulk head fitting issue...I can hear it lock and unlock now, compressor still runs every know and then ( so there is still a small leak somewhere)...But atleast its functioning and holding air...I need to take it for a test run at the river one more time before I try to take off across CO..We'll see..Id love to take the commando for sure though if I had the choice...

T18 is in the vehicle now...It was a bear wrestling that heavy sucker in the heat...But after a relentless struggle, I won...took 2 afternoons..The granny gear better be worth all the trouble!!!...Now I need to make/adapt a crossmember of some type to hold that monster in there...and make a twin stick setup for the Dana 20...And make a new floor pan cover, I went to town with a sawzall...Ill get some pics posted later when I get some more done...

No...Nothing at all...the only change is it probably has more dust piled up on it...

I am looking at making some more room to have a place to work on it here in the very near future...Unfortunately its on the back burner till then ( and has been for a while)...But I havent forgotten about it and still have a plan to finish it...Like I said from the start of this thread, this one is going to take me some time to get finished, but Ill get there eventually.
