That would be my CJ7 coming back together. K5 Blazer frame, 4.3 Vortec V6, 700R4, 4:1 D300, new harness, new body, new interior. Only thing original is the transfer case and axles, and maybe the fuel tank. I am tickled pink that it is finally coming together.

Jeep body (not the same one) going back on. VIN and title say 1986 Jeep, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. This one will be -barely- street legal so we can use it up in the mountains. Don't think any factory wiring will be used... all LED and homebrew except for the Painless EFI harness and connections to sensors and back to transmission for lockup, VSS, etc. I have a standalone signal / hazard flasher system to use so wiring should be pretty simple.

Update:

Mounted the engine and mocked up the transmission using the factory engime mount locations and factory crossmember, then set axles underneath. With that looking OK, we set a mock-up body tub on and checked engine location. The engine is going to have to be moved rearward over a foot, which is going to mean a little welding, and a really great weight balance on the finished product.

Looks like wheelbase is going to sit about 96 inches or so, unless something else changes.

More to come...

Update:

Moved the factory (Chevrolet) engine crossmember back 9 inches, which required a little creative frame massaging to get the height to stay the same. Then we built a tubular crossmember for the transmission. Weight distribution is going to be pretty sick and the belly is going to end up nearly totally flat. Rear driveshaft length eyeballs to about 2 feet.

Might be able to get in trouble with rig like that!
