Strong Enough for a Man, But Made for a Woman!

‘75 Jeep CJ5

In the process of being reincarnated:

  • Swapped in rebuilt AMC 360
  • T-18 4 speed manual transmission
  • NP205 transfer case
  • Spring over axle
  • Shackle reversal
  • Dana 44 front axle
  • Ford 9” rear axle, Detroit locker

Planned completion:  Kick Splatman’s Ass!

  • New paint (PMS 226 rhodamine red)
    • nickname: Trail Pig
  • Painless wiring harness
  • Seats with 4-pt harness
  • Full roll cage
  • 35” tires
  • No top!  OK, perhaps a bikini...

Project Status

Time moves very slowly.... 12 months later and the CJ is not trail worthy though there has been progress (seats installed, engines moved forwarded and it runs!!).  Still tons of work and $$ to invest, maybe 12 months from now?
