    Figured I would start a build thread I don't take a bunch of pictures but will do my best.

    My plans are 302 swap full width axles 3 link front with coils and eventually coil overs when budget allows. Keeping the rear simple with re arched 63" Chevrolet springs 38's and bead locks when budget allows and a cage

    As the Project currently sits I have a 302 sitting in the frame the rear suspension is done minus shocks. The front I have almost everything to do it and its current waiting for me to get time to work on it. On to the pictures [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Well I got a chance to flex it out a little today (just for reference I'm 5'8'' tall) my cherry picker wouldn't go any higher so that's as high as I could go still had 3 " of shaft showing on the shocks also got my fuel cell frame welded up and in the frame and also started on my custom headers.

    It's been a little while since I updated this haven't done much mounted the radiator threw a extra stepside box on it I had laying around. Currently it is sitting outside of my barn while I work on my jeep. It needs to get a wash down clean some of the dust off things. I'm currently working on wiring it. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
