I have been reading a ton of threads on here. Figured it was about time to post. I started a frame off restoration of a CJ7 several years ago. It was stopped because of marriage, kids, and then divorce. Now that I have gotten back into a position that I can work on it again I decided to restart my project. I have a ton of parts and spent a lot of time figuring out what I thought would work best. Currently it looks like it will have the I6 out of a '78, nv3550 transmission, d300 and d44's out of a scout. now I just got to put it together. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. The engine is going to be totally rebuilt and with a little hp.

Welcome to the forum! We love pictures! Maybe start a build thread so we can all see your progress.

Right now it would be pretty empty, Just gathering parts. Just picked up a hard top but will start a build thread when I get going in earnest.

Welcome aboard from Va!! A build thread at this point would still be beneficial - Letís us in on what you have to work with. Makes answering questions easier........ gives us a head start.
