NEWBIE BUILD UP

i'm in the process of overhauling my 67 j-3000 for it's 40th birthday and thought i'd share some pics and specs from my mad thrash build that will hopefully be finished in time for the easter jeep safari. the plan is to completely gut the truck to the frame and body and update the drivetrain with donor parts from my dearly departed 79 waggy which i rolled on its 3rd trip out after a like build up. so i've got to merge the 2 into one so they can both live on. here are the only digital pics i,ve got so far. waggy part way through build and the parts i'll be using and the j-truck as it is now before build.

And some people accuse Americans of having an iron(y) deficiency!

The pics look good, but if you could upload some bigger ones, that would be nice.

every time i tried to load the pics it wanted me to make them smaller and this is what i ended up with i much more adept with a wrench than this darn computer. i'll try to get some outside help and see what i can do about the size. note the tiny designation of the pics they went through small, smaller , smaller still and a couple more resizings till i finally ended up at tiny

BMP files do not compact very well and usually creat much larger file size. Use your image editor to save them as JPG files. They are much more compact than BMP.

You could also try to save them as a PDF.

That makes them a bit of a pain to open, however.

thanks for the suggestions on the pics i think with all the help i can figure it out. as for my build its going well so far. the gutting is finished, and i'm starting to fit the new parts in thier new homes its a little tougher than i thought. i assumed most of my waggy parts would be direct fits not the case but after 2 nights i was able to fit the radiator, and weld in the motor mounts. the next night i built a new mount and cross member for the tranny and tonight i chopped off the front axle and suspention and will start fitting the front springs and dana 60 tomorrow. i have taken alot of pics with my camera phone which are easier to post but its hard to tell whats going on in them.

Cool pics, Darwin. I like the pto winch and the lights in front vent holes, what brand/kind of lights are they, they look like a perfect fit.

thanks! i'm not the one that put those lights in but they are pretty cool. i think the guy used headlight buckets out of an old chevy but the lights themselves are 100 watt aircraft landing lights they are super bright and illegal here in utah so i don't think they can stay. the pto winch is for sale i decided to use an electric winch on this build.

Where do you have the pto winch for sale and what are you asking for it?
Might be interested
