It's an 1982, has a 304, T18, D20
3" body lift, 4" spring
Axles: 4:10 gears with upgraded shafts, front ARB, rear Detroit.

Our plans 4.0L AW4 from a 1994 mated to a D300
1" body lift and Rubicon Express 4.5" YJ springs.

When we started last June

I was trying to come up with something snappy like, "I see you are airing out all your dirty wiring"... but the laundry to wiring reference doesn't seem to work.

Pap rigged us up a frame rotiserie from a couple engine stands, CJ front bumper and some misc metal laying around.
Works great, can spin a full 360

AW4 Transmission mount
Not sure what AW4 to D300 adapter/clocking ring we used.
It was in with the massive collection of stuff we bought from bobcat.
We cut out the bump from the the stock CJ skid plate.
Used a stock AW4 mount and part of the XJ cross member.
At first fit up the XJ cross member put us to high. We then drilled out the spot welds and just used the upper part of it.
