    I followed that build last year......that aftermarket D-60 crate axle is 68.750" WMS both F/R..........and done that way to utilize the JK suspension which takes up considerable space at least in the front..........but in reality due too the JK body being considerably wider than a CJ it does look a little out of place.......but from what I've seen it wheels quite well.

    I'm doing mine at 61" WMS just to make that adjustment on body width.

    Tarry, what axles are you planning on using? Iirc, your rear was a custom 9", right?

    I don't care much for the chopped windshield frame. If the cage was level across the top it would look better... Also the headlights are killing my OCD

    Nah, that one bug-eyed headlight makes it look like its got lock jaw since it didn't get shot to protect itself from all that patina. I like it, but kinda like the Willys truck a little better.
