    I have a set of longer shifters if you want to use pucks. :D

    There is a guy up near here that has a (48?) flattie project for sale; gusseted frame, new tub, 225 newly rebuilt, I think a TH350, 44s, 3.70s, painless wiring, and rolling for I think $3000. Just swap your body over.

    If I had one more bay I'd own it. ;)

    Don't tempt me Mike. :)

    Actually, the thought did *briefly* cross my mind. Until I realized that I'd be living under a bridge somewhere once my wife got done with me. She's really pi$$ed at me as it is that I'm changing stuff around now that the Jeep is finally "done". She just doesn't understand that a Jeep is never truly "done". :(

    Lift is half done, wheels are in-house. Planning to run down to Wheeling to pick up the swampers and have them mounted tomorrow.

    32's or 34's. Decisions, decisions......


    MUWAHAHAHAHAH!


    No pics until it's rolling again. :p

    Funny you should say that Brian, I was *very* seriously considering a serious lift and a set of 36x9.00x16 NDT's, until I realized that I'd never get the Jeep into (or out of) my little yuppieville garage. My clearance to the door opening is only 6'5". :mad:

    I ended up settling for the "Animal" look with skinny rims and a set of "retro-lookin" swampers that don't require a 4" lift and all the drivetrain mods to make it all work. I think it's going to turn out OK. ( I hope!)

    (Sleeping in the garage over all this you know) ;)
