1985 Jeep CJ-7 - Ten Year Project

Scott Smith lives in Troy, Ohio and he is the owner of this sweet 1985 Jeep CJ-7. He purchased it 10 years ago and had plans to restore it, a few weeks after purchase he tore it down to the frame and like most of us, life got in the way for a while. Last year he and his dad decided it was time to bring it back to life. Everything on the Jeep was replaced or rebuilt, they dropped a fuel injected Chevrolet 350 V-8 in it back by an AX15 5-speed manual transmission and rebuilt the Dana 300 transfer case. They added a 2.5-inch suspension lift and a 1-inch body lift to clear the 33-inch tires. Ten years in pieces and 6 months of daily dedication to get it back on the road. Awesome Jeep guys, thanks for sharing.

1967 J-2000 - Ode to My Father

Steve Gott from Louisville, KY sent in his 1967 J-2000 which originally belonged to his father. They started a frame off restoration on it in 1993, unfortunately Steve's father passed away in 1998 before they could complete the project. Gott restarted the project and made it into the amazing truck you see here. It sits on a 4-inch custom lift and 35-inch tires, under the hood is a 383 Chevy V-8, which is a stroked 350 running a small block 400 crankshaft. It's a stunning resto-mod, and you father would be proud.
