Hello all jeep fans out there . First of all i want to say that I am an amateur but i have a good resource for labor; a family business of a fully functional workshop with all services from mechanical to electric to paint and body shop and my extremely limited set of skills which I am planning to expand. I have already made my start by restoring an FJ40 (Pictures are attached), I exchanged the original engine with a 1KZ 3.0ltr Diesel , transmission with a Prado 5speed gear and converted it to hard top. it taught me the basics of vehicle restoration/alterations. Thus i know that SOA is totally a different ball game. Lately I had a deal with my brother who has a CJ7 with a 2C engine and its gear, and I have agreed to experiment an SOA with it. I am hoping to complete the project in 6 months keeping in mind that i have to overhaul the engine and gear plus the finances and last but not the least, my limited skill set. I will be uploading the pictures as the project progresses. I have also started collecting information about the project and there are a few things on my mind which i have not concluded i.e. how to align the drive shafts angles and the steering assey. Moreover the lift kits and shackles and every kind of alteration is something which I can manage. SO any relative suggestions for SOA problems,installations,betterment,pictures,links would be highly appreciated. please share any information i should have regarding the project before getting into it.
