    Any engine pics? I sure would like to see if the engine is as nice as the rest. I would like to see the xfer case set up as well. Cool ride for sure.

    That sure brings back some memories. Back in the early 80's I put a 400 sbc in a CJ5. It was my everyday Jeep but I raced it in the sand drags on weekends. One day the guys talked me into taking to the dragstrip and it ran a 13.07@102mph in the 1/4. I had a blast with that thing. Ever see a `69 427 Corvette get beat by a Jeep? That guy was really mad :laugh:

    Turn'n a 13.07 will definitely blister a small block stock vette. I would have loved to see that. I bet the ride down the 1320 was scary for you though.
