Been going on a year now that I have been slowly collecting parts for my build. Started out with a 1964 CJ6 that looked pretty good sitting on a 1978 Bronco frame. As good as the floors looked at first.After removing the tool box, I have found the front pans have at least 2 if not 3 generations of repairs. Plan to cut them out and replace them with 14 gauge diamond tread steel. But, the floors are not the most of my problem. The PO's had plenty of brazing rods and Bondo and were not afraid to used either! The Bronco frame while was close on the wheel base but, put the trans cross member right under the engine oil pain. And the body was only held on with a half dozen 5/16" carriage bolts. So it is out with the old, And in with the new. A TDK CJ8 frame that will allow me to run a late model front clip, the extra room under the hood will allow the fitment of the motor I am going to run, and give me wide-track spring width. Will only have to shorten the rear overhang. As far as why I need the extra room under the hood, the motor I'm going to run is a Cummins 4btaa. Besides the motor I need room for an inter-cooler. For a transfer case I'm going to run a 1991 Dodge NP205 that I will twin-stick. For a front axle I am going to run a Dana 44 out of a 1977 Wagoneer that I will narrow to wide-track width and the 9" rear axle that was under the Bronco frame and narrowed to 1977 Bronco width to match the cut down front axle. The front axle came out of a 1977 Wagoneer hulk that I bought for $300 pulled the axle and steering box then scrapped the rest for $273. Once I get the YJ springs I am planning to run and the Dodge NV4500 trans my JEEP will have parts spanning from 1964-2001. A 37 year span of parts, trying to use the best of the best for a 1 time build.
