    CJ buggy build

    I bought a set of super duty axles and decided to put them I a 1977 CJ. It came with a 350.

    Here are the axles from a 2009 F350. I cut off the leaf spring mounts and painted the bare metal for now until I get a chance to truss the rear.

    That looks like a fun project. Are you gonna upgrade that 350 at all?

    Thanks man. I'd like to put a roller cam, headers and exhaust. Eventually convert over to EFI.

    I plan on putting 14" coilovers all around. And do some major cutting on the tub as soon as I get them.

    Just got my new diff cover today. Wasn't too sure when I heard it was aluminum but it's seems pretty beefy.

    Had a minor surgery performed so I won't be able to work on it for a few weeks but that just gives me more time to research and order parts.
