The "Get Me By" MJ Truggy
Compliments by cgmrdc @ jeepforum.com
So, a small introduction here, I started off in an XJ and then built a very capable, DD TJ while in school, click the link below for the build thread. Traded it with plans of building a buggy, but a year later and a big career move i still hadnt started the buggy build and was tired of not wheeling so i picked this up for 500 bucks.
Sample of previous work
Two other friend's XJs
And another XJ
4Cyl, 5 speed, 2 wd
Basically everything I have collected for the buggy will be going into this build.
350 on propane, sm465, dana 300.
Currie Rock Jock 60, 5.38s, 35s spline inner and outer alloys, drive flanges, detroit. Full hydro
Shaved 14 bolt, 5.38s, detroit, disc brakes.
Currie antirock Rear Sway Bar
16 inch FOA coilovers
4 in FOA air bumps
105-107 in WB
Dual Wilwood master cylinders and cutting brake.
Warn HS9500 winch
4 links front and rear
The plan for the MJ is do 2x6 rocker/boat sides, internal cage, Rear in going to be cut off behind the cab and tubed out, Front grill is going to be narrowed, tube fenders and engine cage with the winch behind the grill and the radiator in the back. Interior is going to be stripped and have custom dash... Hopefully done by March.
makin some progress
shed cleaned up again
jeep rolled in with all major components removed
literally zero droop...
no longer an issue...
sage is ready to go wheelin...
and just cant stop cutting!
a sharp wood chisel works really well to scrape the majority of the undercoating off, for future reference. then i used aircraft stripper to remove the rest of the paint and such
when i cut the inner fenders out i left the finch seem where it was spot welded to the frame, but im wanting to box the whole front frame section in sooo...
then folder it over with a hammer and welded it back together
the last 12in or so were left unstripped and welded because one the motor goes in ill be cutting it off and tubing the rest to clear the 60
FOA air bumps
