The trans originally was built with a 2WD output, I pulled it apart and installed a short output.  Installed new 1.25 adapter and tcase.   The engine came to my shop as a short block, I had the heads checked out and installed all the parts with a shallow Fbody oil pan.  I got everything bolted together in the chassis and trying to finish differential work to get links done.

Are the axles narrowed or still full width? If this turns out anything close to the jeep it'll be a head turner for sure.

Its for a friend and i'm not really charging anything, we talked about it and i think it will end up being a trade deal or maybe buy some parts for my rig.  

I actually plan to make this a rolling chassis within the next month, and get it off the frame table.  Then copy the chassis and get mine back to a roller as well.

Odd question, do you have the old lower king pin bearings or did you throw them away?

If he gets new ones I'll take the old. I just need them so I can put my knuckles on to make mine a roller. I don't even have the bearings to do so. I'll change them for new ones when I can.
