The Km2 will look good I think. Ill post some pics later on. Hopefully get my hands on an older style 8274 a friend said I could get soon. That will really set it off I think. Also scored all the power steering stuff I need for $150. Picking up a d300 for it tomorrow and pulling the 20 out and installing a new clutch that I picked up yesterday. The thought behind the 300 was to put 4.1's in it and keep the axle gears in it for good highway speed. Im planning on driving it to Oscar if I can find a couple people going little slower. If it will tow my small pop up id like to tow it.
    Who did u order from? I may want the A/T's

    My first vehicle was a CJ7, '76 model....I don't plan to ever return to it. Life is too short.

    Hope you enjoy it

    Let me look it up but I've patina'd stuff using a vinegar and peroxide solution. Pretty much half and half I believe and let it sit. Id prime the back and do that on front.

    Guy I work with now is into cars and has a patina'd rat rod I'll ask him what all they did to it.

    I was aware I need an adapter Dan. I thought It was just a direct swap. How thick is this adapter? I'd like to keep the same drive shafts and shifters in the same hole. I have a 304/t150/20 if that helps.

    Not sure of the thickness. The dana 20 uses a "Texas" pattern. The dana 300 uses a round pattern .

    Are you going to sell any of the stock parts? I can't believe you are going to add tube fenders. Boo to that. Please don't sell any of the stock parts without giving me a buzz.
