79 Cj 7

Hey yall, some of you heard that I am ready to start my CJ 7 build. Well I landed a 350 Chevy small block ready to run for a good price, I got a NP 205 gear driven transfer case, and turbo 350 chevy built to run.

Now the engine compartment is ready for the 350 chevy but I need to fit the tranny and transfercase. I already found a place to build my driveshafts for me.

I am going to flip my axles under my leaf springs to add some lift.

But is there a conversion kit for the tranny and transfer case, also where is a good place to get a rear disc brake conversion kit.

Any suggestions or ideas please let me have them.

I will do so logan. I have not touched since last year when I brought it home. I now have money to get parts. I know I should mod my truck some more. But I really would like this CJ on the road. So I will take some pics soon and place them on here.

I am going to document this build up from start to finish. So pictures will be taken.

It is going to be crazy, Paint scheme is up in the air right now. I am thinking something bright and wild but yet still affordable and something I won't really care if it gets scratched up on the trails. I am going to use tractor paint I do know that.

You could do like Raul, and get the whole thing Line X'ed. I think that would be sweet. No scratches, and spray it down, inside and out.

I am planning on that for the interior of the tub. No floor mats to worry about no rusting easy clean up after a day in the mud or trail.
