Part 5: Our Bowtie Jeep Comes Down To The Wire

Last month we finished up our Ultimate Adventure 2010 coverage, but there are still a few loose ends left to the buildup of the Ultimate CJ-17, also known as the UACJ and Pewe's Pile, which we built for Editor Péwé to lead the trip with. The Jeep had sat neglected in his garage for years due to time constraints and the black hole that magazine projects can become. We decided it would be the perfect candidate for the new smog-legal Erod V-8 crate engine from GM Performance Parts.

From there, the project snowballed, as projects will do. The frame was modified for the three-link with track bar front and a spring-under rear leaf suspension. The axles were built by Dynatrac (Prorock 44/60 hybrid front, Prorock 60 rear), and the aluminum body tub by Aqualu was covered in rivets and outfitted with military jump seats as the Jeep took on a B-17 bomber theme.

So what's left?

Just all the little stuff, like the exhaust, transmission, wiring, plumbing ...
