    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.

    I love it, I was looking at new G2 44s, any other mods to the axles? Besides the truss on the rear....

    Didn't do too much to the rear, trussed it, put in a detroit locker, 5.38 gears and new seal. The front was trussed with a ram mount. converted to king pin, 2.75 hydraulic ram installed on the mount, high steer arms bolted in, yukon grizzly locker with 5.38 gears.

    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.

    Got some work done. Decided it needed a muffler so I don't go deaf. Found a muffler I liked and a y pipe to equalize the pressure between the heads. I had to go with a single due to the space I had to work with.

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.
