It took 2.5 months to build it from frame to trail. Keith Story, Jake Long and I did all the work. The "outside" tubing is all D.O.M 1.75 x .125 wall. The rest in welded seam 1.75 x .120 wall. The front lower links are 1.25 x .120 inside 1.5 x .120 wall the uppers are just 1.25 x .120. The passenger side has a closeable door to allow the driver see the passenger side tire from his seat when going slow, close it so the passenger doesn't get pelted when going fast. It began life as a 1983 CJ-7. The only unmodified part left is the transmission and clutch. I was chief painter and did my best jailbird impression, I ran. Rustolium supplied the paint and K-mart gave me 50% off, going out business isn't all bad.
