    Here is a 1st gear clutch and steel compared to a 3rd gear clutch and steel out of the same transmission.

    You can still see the numbers on the 3rd gear clutches.

    Im almost to the point to start going back together with this thing. I did some swapping around today and ended up with a pretty dang good start to a cage and a fair amount of cash in exchange for a set of waggy 44's, gears and front truss. This thing needs finish welded, but for the most part its done. I just need to swap it over to the new tub.

    Awesome cj. Do I understands right that you are using a completely new tub or just doing a shit ton of welding to fix the old one? Either way bravo. Can't wait to see it come along.

    You understand correctly. I parted out a rust free yj a while back just for the tub and i will be using that. It will be comp cut to allow for the extended wheel base and i plan on boat siding it as well. Once i get the new transmission bolted up and make a new crossmember ill be ready to start fitting the body and start making frame tie ins for the cage.

    Worked on getting the family bar out of the new tub and getting the cage out of the cut up tub i got off a club member. Ran up the road to a guys place that has several j-trucks looking for a th400 to dana 20 adapter, and no dice. He did however have a j-4000 with a 401 in it that he bought for junk price. He didnt know it was a 401 and i didnt tell him other wise. I will proceed to badger him until he sells me the truck. I have a ride coming up in 9 days that i dont want to miss, so the thrash is on to get it in wheelable condition. I dont care if the armor is on, heater is in it, or if its painted as long as i can go wheel. The short list is to get the cage in the tub, tub on the frame, frame tie ins, dash back in, steering column back in, and fuel cell plumbed.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
