6.9.20 purchased the Goat built LJ chassis kit 115" WB. with fixture kit. I already have the Subframe assembly, engine mounts.
The drive train as of this writing will be TBI 350, 700r4, Atlas 2 4:3 60 and 14 bolt with 5:13 on some type of 42's and beadlocks. plan is a dual purpose rig so I can drive it on the highway as much as the trails. this will be a long term build... think of 72blazers k5 build in terms of how long. I retire in six years.. should have it done by then. the only thing I see as a possible change will be a LS motor using the Edelbrock standalone system.

I still have the seats, engine, transmission, shifter, winch, engine harness from the CJ, plus a new Alum Radiator with dual fans and a new fuel cell still in the box. and a switch panel. probably moar stuff that I have forgotten. So that is a head start.

for now I need to get busy rearranging and organizing my shop and getting my welding skilz updated and improved. :flipoff: for the folks with the welding comments ... :chrfal:
