Awesome build! I may have missed it, but what are those wheels that the KM2s are mounted on? Like a turbine-spoke steelie? I dig em!

Not sure who made them, I came across them years ago. I’ve been looking to another one for the spare but I’ve never found any others

Well this sucked. Pulled old leaky steering box to put in a new one. Broke a capture but in the frame and found out the power line will not tighten down on the new box.
had to cut the frame open from the side and weld in a new nut.

Been pretty busy the last couple of weeks. Glad to say this project is done!
Cage is installed, modified a tj warn bumper to fit a cj and added a custom tire carrier to it. Wrapped up a bunch of odds and ends. Got the original owner of the Jeep to come by today as well. Happy to say he approved! This Jeep was purchased by him in 1981 here locally. It was originally a base model with a four cylinder. We kept 4FB92DDB-1B2C-49D4-BC2E-B96180828CD8.jpeg 99BAD2DB-64AC-4860-8BD6-0E91400612C6.jpeg F85584B7-4979-488F-9B38-A5EB4ADA9620.jpeg D0074437-632D-4987-A551-ADE34BA96C8C.jpeg 9A4E5C16-ED36-40BD-8D67-440B9E121629.jpeg 8B3D5AA0-5767-4448-B02A-844BEBF5CF9B.jpeg A60C204B-7F3C-412A-9C81-8EDD9845C24E.jpeg 769F8E53-1BC2-4D17-91B6-0B3726AA1427.jpeg 295C3114-62C3-465A-8375-D8B9FAEA6BE7.jpeg the color original. The original hood decals were solid white. When I bought it from him it was torn apart to be rebuild but he had stalled on the project. He used this Jeep as it was intended. There were multiple Jeep jamboree Plaques on the dash.

So finished the Jeep last week and then straight to the trails this weekend. Went to AOAA in pa, about 30 minutes west of Rausch creek where nationals was supposed to be held. Great park! 8000 acres of trails. Jeep is now broken in with a few scuffs and scratches. Happy to report it did well.

I run two sets of tires, a set for the street and a set for the trails. I had my bfg krawlwers on H2 rims, but I destroyed them last year at Rausch. So I have them on a set of raceline beadlocks now.
You destroyed the H2 wheels?
