Project "Sams Jeep" a.k.a Project "SJScrambler" - part #3
 1  2  3  4
(11/30/2017) I kept at the cab for a while trying to get things lined up. For the most part it was lining up, but I was still not happy with it. The doors weren't fitting right and nothign was square or level. I was able to pick up a pretty beat Scrambler tub, but I wanted it for dimensions for the new truck bed that will be created, so I wasn't caring too much that the front part of it broke off when getting it home.
I decided to move on and go in a different direction with the tub... but when I was picking that up, I came across a 304 that was witht he tub, so out came the 258 and in went the 304... well, onto the stand that is. I will rebuild it and go through it, but the top seemed clean. They said it was rebuilt not that long ago and it looks pretty decent from what I can tell.
Now I know that a lot of people won't agree with using a YJ tub for this project, but it is an original Jeep part and I finally came to the conclusion that I didn't want any aftermaket stuff. Just basically a 1980's pickup that if you went to Jeep/AMC/Chrysler during that time, you would get something like what I am going to build. We will see how it turns out.
I have made some good progress in the last few weeks. I got the garage all changed up again and pulled the parts and pieces out for the winter months. Summer is hard to work on this with all the other stuff going on... but now that the temperature is dropping, I will be working as much as I can on this project to get that cab work done. Already it is 100% better with fitment as it is all original parts and pieces being used. I am currently patching the floors and rockers on the driver side. More to come, stay tuned!
