Looking at those big tires and 3.5" SL I bet he's gonna cut it. Looks great though - love those wheels!

I gave my son the choice to cut or not cut. He says were cutting it. I got the wheels and tires locally and they came with 33x12.50's. probably will put 35's on it when it's driveable. My sons already planning out his Rubicon, and Dusy Ershim trips. My jeep wouldnt make it but looking forward to having a vehicle it the family that will.

If it was still original i would have a hard time being the one to cut it, but i love em both ways. I cut a buddys 68 for him about 15 yrs ago, he bought it from the original owner, with like 60k miles on it. Had to ask twice before i made the first cut if he really wanted to cut it.

Well we started working on the body, but I will save that update for later.
I was not too hot on running the plastic ford pump, really want the dual return saginaw. After looking around for a bracket to mount it I decided to make my own. I also tried the early 90's E series van bracket. It actually bolt up but is wedged up against the steering box when in place. I am running stock the box, maybe other boxes would clear this bracket better. heres a picture of the van bracket that i didnt use. and a few pictures of what i have so far. It ended up a little lower than i would have liked, but the lower return comes out in a bad place, heading right into the center of the steering shaft. also I would have liked to mount it more straight up, but that darn steering box just keeps getting it the way. still need to add an idler above it where the AC compressor would go if I decide later to put AC in it.

They are 15 x 10's , they look cool, a little narrower would probably be more practical, but these turned up locally on craigslist with the tires and I couldn't pass it up.
