VERY impressed..Looking really awesome!! Congrats on getting the cab finished up and on! I'm taking a long break on mine, I've just got a lot of finishing work to do (body filler, paint, etc).

getting close

on the fender wells i used spray undercoating.i wasn't too impressed.wallmart had some kind of undercaoting for like 40.00 dollars for a gallon.i think i'll try that on the truck bed when it's ready.
hopefully this works for pics.

This is for sure the coolest fsj project I have ever seen. I sure wish I had the time patience and money to do this. Nice job.

Sadly that spray undercoating never really dries that hard..it's rubber. I use it about once a year on my inner fenders, and also behind the trim panels in the rear of the cherokee for sound deadening and sealing. I dont think it'll last long on exterior flares though

thanks guys.the hard part is done .as for money the i mainly went to materials like 5 angle grinders,sanding disks and paint.mabe 300.00 into it now.
brizio i'm using the chopped razor grill,oh and if you come over with your wag momma may not let you leave.lol she really like the purple wags,we had one untill i parted it out cause i did not have room for 3 jeeps.
thinking back i did use 3 rigs for this project.or 2 rigs and extra set of front doors.
as for the project i think allmost anyone can do this.i have really no welding skills, well i learned on this project.

Keep pluggin away at it! I hear ya on the discs..I usually stock up when the Cummings Tool Sale rolls through town twice a year, or grab a bag full when cruising Home depot and stockpile what I can.

So far one grinder: Makita 4". Can't kill it.

This is one awesome build. I have been wanting to do a crew cab build on an old Jeep truck for awhile but was not sure what I wanted to use (had been thinking a M715). Now I have an idea where to start. I am using an 84 Wagoner as a donor for a 49 Willy's wagon and was about to scrap all body parts but I will be keeping the rear doors and other parts. Once again great build and thanks for the inspiration!

the only thing that i don't like about the project is that the cab and bed ratio.the cab seems to be a little to big and the bed seems a little to small.i may add 6 inches to the rear of the bed.
but were i want to cut i woud have to deal with the body mounts for the bed.i guess i'll wait and see if it's worth the extra work.

no worries brizio she don't drive

dajeeps, how wide is the back of the cab on the trucks. I was actually thinking of using an old M416 trailer body as a bed and am interested as to what the width difference is.

i don't know how wide the m416 is .but i can tell you that a 87 wag boby will bolt to the 73 truck frame perfectly.
as for the cabs
the truck cab is one inch shorter at the roof line than the wag cab.
it starts at the window line and tapers up to the roof line.
hope this helps.

Thank you that does help since the Wag and truck are about the same I will just go measure mine. I have the M416 body so I also have its size (49 or 50 inches I think). Can't start this project yet or that sweet little wife of mine may not be so sweet (she wants me to finish her Willy's first) but this gives me some good insight, ideas, and starting points. Thanks again.

Neat project, should make a nice ride I like it.

One suggestion, take one step back when taking your pictures, it is hard to see the context in a lot of them, like looking at an elephant though a microscope.
