Heres one my boy took, it did a wheel stand and just stayed there so Pop's waved to everyone.

Yes the bumper sticks out that far, the wheel base has been stretched to 90" so now the front of the fender is even with the center line of the axle. We'll be streching the hood and fenders in the future.

It did really good only a couple of minor problems, not bad for a rig that sat 8 years and went through an almost complete rebuild right before the run.

Well my part of this build is done and it's loaded on the trailer ready to go home. I did brand it with an alloffroadaz sticker before I sent it away.

Yep, its nicely tucked away under a tarp (actually Clint's tarp).  I'll probably bring it back out in another couple of years.    :spin:

You can stay in for a couple of years, but I think the willys should be out much more often  :taunt:

ME TOO.... Not a whole lot of interesting stuff to take pictures of yet.  Its a half tabbed and stretched GPW body.  Plans are for a 2WD T-Bucket style.  I've got an old Muncie car 4. Speed adapted to a dana 18 transfercase and a juicing v6.  Probably going to end up using a 351c or a 460half with the 4better speed and TC.      BUTT......Lots more to do on "BLUE" first.

Alrighty then.....   After all my problems with Anna @ Renegade seats, I've finally decided on and come up with a pair is suspension seats that I think are absolutely perfect for "BLUE"......  The sides are low enough for ease of entry/exit and they were built as ordered an on time as promised.  Judy @ BS SAND is so wonderful to deal with that I just cannot say enough awesome things about her.  To make us happy, they almost came up with an entirely new design of jeep seat.  So here it is.....

$520 for the pair.   Not as cheap as the Renegades were supposed to have been, but with BS SAND, I have seats in hand and not out almost $500 again. :pimpwink: :beer:

Had to dig the Little Blue thing out of the compost pile for the last time.  Hopefully My health will let me keep tinkering on it in my old age.  The last week, Clint and I have adapted his old Holley Avenger to the OLD BUICK bolt pattern and seem to have it running pretty well for a 1965 engine thats never been opened up,except for a few gaskets.  Can you picture a 300cu Buick V8 with only about 46,000 miles on it.  We also dug out the 2 year old BS Sand seats from the storage shed and finally installed them.  This old fat guy just does not fit well in the flatfend any more, but I'm not giving up on her (or me).  After this Thanksgiving trip to the ranch, we are going to cut up the cage a bit, raise it for more headroom a couple of inches and do some more cutting to the rear inner fenderwells.   We started on it too late and lacked time for this trip.  I'm going to find some king of entry steps for the wife and I to get in the thing.       :beer:   :hack:   :beer:
