Recieved the Fatman universal 4 link kit today. Was working on the front, but now I'll shift to the back half. I'm going to use the old frame as a structural support for the bed and new rails for the suspension. Much of the old rail will be simply cut away. This way it will retain it's original appearance from the outside. As I make progress I'll post pictures. Keep in mind this same universal kit could easily be installed on a gen 3 ram.

Yes, it has good geometry and is built for the willys frame and has a a sway bar.

A little cooler today, gloomy looks like rain is coming.. Got the rear axle down and amost all of the front cut away. Should have everything removed tomorrow. I'm cleaning up the frame as I go along. My buddy has a plasma cutter and I might go to his shop to do a little custom work on the rear cross member...

The Wilwood front brakes just came in. The UPS delivery guy is a good guy. I leave the shop door open and he sits everything inside. We have each others phone numbers so I can call him for a pickup/return.

Worked on removing heavy metal today... didn't look like much. But scared the hell out me when I cut the first U bolt and got a loud pop and the axle jumped 6 inches off the ground. It hadn't dawned on me the spring pack center bolt might have rusted away. But it certainly came to mind at that moment.. I put a C clamp on the spring pack from there on. All the center bolts held but the U bolts still had alot of tension loaded into them... and each one popped loudly..

Working by yourself you need to be very cautious....

My mutt was laying about 10 feet away watching. After the first one popped he got up and went outside to lay down again. No doubt he decided to play it safe.... lol

Once the frame is totally stripped and the jeep engine mounts are removed. The frame construction for the hemi engine will begin. I'll start a new thread in the technical section discribing the progress being made or in some cases problems encountered. The Willys will use the 6.1 stroker motor built last year, a 46rh trans and a 9.25 rear axle. Drivetrain wise the Willys will be very similar to Redtruck. And much of the build can be done to a Ram truck. This is a long term project that I expect to keep me busy for a year or more.. it is a street rod, not a race car... and should be wicked fun..
