We all hear those stories of "yeah I'm gonna finish it someday" well here is one slowly getting finished. At least at this point all of the big parts are together and its going to start getting glued together in the next couple of months. No groundbreaking tech here, just another platform for people to heckle me on so I actually finish this someday project. Back story cliff notes: Summer of '17 my father in law to be calls and asks if I want a CJ7 project the neighbor is giving him. An abandoned restoration project he thought he would get around to someday. I just say yeah of course rather than ask what I'm in for. It ends up being a 79 CJ7 in boxes and pieces. Bought originally from another old farmer who used to haul fertilizer and farm stuff around in it, the tub had rotted out and the frame was ok but thinning in the back around some mounts. Not much was really useable, and not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I put it on the back burner until I have the time to really put it together and minimize my hack rather than just booger it together. My father in law has always wanted an old CJ to bomb around the farm in, but wont ever do anything for himself. Enter the future son in law and the Someday CYJ. Fast forward 2 years: Wedding, life, work all get in the way and I finally am getting around to putting this thing together. Like my father in law, who is "frugal" , the idea is to get it going using what we have laying around. Luckily hes an old farmer with all kinds of old stuff laying around we can trade, sell, swap, scrap or whatever to get what we need. The biggest hurdle I had was finding a tub/frame that was workable. Rot free CJ7 tubs are rare and/or pricey and being a beat around old farm jeep, there was no reason to spend a pile of money on a fiberglass tub. Thanks to@YJKrawlin who was parting out his rig, I was able to scoop up a donor. Gotta say thanks for a pretty darn complete tub/frame that came with a ton of cool little goodies that work out well for what the project entails. There were more upsides to working off the YJ platform and just dropping the CJ drivetrain and clip onto it than negatives. Going to be slow going as I'm building it in the old farm shop at my inlaws 2 hours away and I travel a ton for work. What we are working with: 88 YJ Tub/Frame Ported Astro Box Hydro Clutch setup CJ front clip Dually Chevy 60/70HD 304 with all the Edlebrock goodies. T18/D20 A full set of YJ Springs, a set of XJ rears. Looking to end up around 105" WB on 37" stock H1's .
