Here is my 77 Jeep that is on the bench. I lifted it...modified the drivelines and shocks for the new lift. Wheels and seats are from the parts box.

I like the sky-high ride. You did a nice job on the suspension mods. Did you scratch build the transfer case?

Shardik...the transfer case is stock....but I modified the drive shafts by making them longer and also cut apart the U-joints and made them workable so they would still work alignment wise

Thanks guys for the comments.

Sorry There has not been any progress on this project...but there has been a LARGE project taking place.....the house...on Aug 4th we had our RO system break and flood the kitchen, pantry and half the living room.....So the whole downstairs (hobby room is downstairs) has been a mess...removing carpet, base boards fixing dry wall removing kitchen cabinets and rebuilding the boxes and the repainting the whole down stairs. Good thing is we went with wood flooring through out the downstairs...So droping pieces from the work bench wont be a big deal anymore....I will be able to find them easier! Looks like it will be the end of Oct before the place is back together. Once thats done I can get back to getting some modeling done instead of RE modeling!
