Thanks Cary for the link, and you too Kyle
I've got to have pictures, just looking a possible things I can duplicate. I plan this not to be my last "restoration", so a rotisserie would be nice to have.
This one is a plan on ebay/amazon, but I don't think I would need the hydraulics, just adds to the cost. I have a crane, however, when I was at the steel store, I couldn't figure out where they hide pipe to make the rotisserie rotisserate I may go there tomorrow and pick the countermans brain and show him what I want to make. It doesn't show wheels, but they are readily available at Northern tools and Hf, and other stores I'm sure.
I do like the large wheels!
This is one I put together with HF engine stands, worked great, sold it
I'm using one on my '62 build I based off of some 'plans' I have if you want them.
I did not want to invest in a long term metal rotisserie, fab mine out out of framing spruce... cheap cheap. Good firewood after done.
That's pretty neat Durk! and Chuck, I would like to see your plans?? In the long run, I would like a rotisserie that I can use for other projects. So even a store bought one isn't out of the question I've really enjoyed the jeep stuff and could see maybe a couple more~ don't know. But, the seller of the one I'm getting may get here in a few days I'm rather excited!
Thanks Dne007, yes if I had future projects Like your mustang shell?? I would of spent the $ and time on a professional whirlly jig. The ifs front assembley in your last pic looks awesome... is that going into your mustang shell? Where was the ifs kit bought from? thanks Jesse
Hi Jessie, if you're referring to the pic a few posts back? that was my triumph TR6 project with a miata 1.8 engine/trans transplant. However, from a distance the frame looks neat. Below is the best pic I could find of the TR6 frame. All other pics were on our computer at the flooded home~ lost a bunch.
Re-installing the body of the TR6 onto its frame
Awesome... with the miata independent rear assembly??? What was the overal track width of the front ifs?...the tr6 is not a very wide car about the same width as a cj 5 tub yah? I now foresee my future build with a rusted out 5 tub I have
Yes, it's IRS and yes, the little TR6 is quite narrow, don't know the width right off hand, just looked it up, outside to outside of the front wheels is 58". I have no idea what the jeep is. Can't wait to see your build, let me know I can sign on!!
This is a jegs, and I know it needs some attachments, but it could be a candidate rotisserie. OF course letting Gary know that I'd like it is another thing~ but I'm special, and anything to do to make retirement years more safe and fun would be worth it
Looks good.. lot more professional looking/functioning then framing lumber lol! Work smart not hard.. special in those golden retirement years. If you don’t mind, could u get bac to me with details on that front ifs... model # and where you guys got it. Thanks Jesse
Jesse, the IFS is from my 71 Triumph TR6, it's the the stock suspension, but cleaned up and installed new bushings. What's on your mind?
This blog shows the front suspension much better in the first pic
I forgot why I put this one here
Thanks... wow good clean up on that factory front... looks a lot like an aftermarket mustang ii front assembly. Tr6 build very cool.
Curtis, the seller, delivered the '68 as promised yesterday morning bright n early. Curtis is an incredibly nice guy! It's a pleasure to meet him and talk to him like a best friend! He drove it into my shop where it rests now, but soon to be revived
The auxillary gas tank fits perfectly between the back bumper and axle, my thoughts were to toss it, but it's done pretty well, maybe I could drop it a few inches and put a tiny trap door to access the filler.
When Curtis pulled it into the shop, it was running on an very high idle, I thought I'll get it running well enough to check out the transmission, and transfer case.
The dash is pretty busy and I may look for another metal dash. One of the push/pulls is for the auxillary gas tank.
Curtis explained to me, that the PO had a makeshift cab on it which he says may account for a more rust free floor.
The fender flares, this is the worst, look factory as they fit too well. I think I'll keep those for sure
The saginaw gear? looks to be OK, works well, might pretty it up with a better bracketry, but it's Ok right now, just need to investigate a better mounting.
Gary is bugging me to take my time, but darn, I know how these things go together now and know I can zip it apart quickly, OK OK, I'll take my time
just putting links along the way so I can go back to em~ I'd never remember this.

Thought this Is cute!
It's a really solid looking Jeep. The steering box mount looks a little janky. The upper front bolt isn't attached to much. You can get a nice prefab weld-on mount from Advanced Adapters: 716838 : Saginaw Power Steering Box Mounting Plate for Jeep | Advance Adapters
Re. rotisseries this was my take-
homemade home made built brewed rolled WhirlyJig autobody auto body rotisserie carosel
oK, starters, a nice day indeed, rolled the poor little jeep outside for a cleaning with the 11hp pressure washer~ it was a nasty jeep!
Though not shown, most of you have seen when I raised my brothers jeeps *** end way high to clean, my camera of course died when I needed it the most
I was a little un-thrilled by the vector taken by the steering shaft, but it works~ I'll know more when I get the tub off.
Now that I know how to get a jeep apart, this if FUN!
I got this left front drum off with a quick wack from my larger selection of hammers, popped right off, but the others didn't budge(depressed me), so I soaked the lugs n such with WD hoping more happens with those.
As usual, there's some glued on crap that my pressure washer would not phase!, but I'm liking the engine!
I should have the tub off tomorrow for a much better look! stay tuned
Any suggestions as I gallop along are always welcomed!!!
