    OD 2.0 - HEMI'd and LCG TJ on 42's ~ A multi-year affair

    After selling O.D. in October 2010, i have been unable to sleep. Nightmares routinely ruin my nights and i randomly break out in sweats. At least that's the story i am going with.......

    I have finally acquired the base i have been looking for to start my new TJ project...

    It's a 1998 TJ with a partially swapped in 2007 Dodge HEMI 5.7/545RE, Hotwire harness, etc..... It'll be a slow process however the end result is planned to be this +:

    - Tons
    - Stretched
    - Full hydro
    - Caged
    - Hylined
    - ORI's or C/O's
    - 42's on Beads

    And, i am still toying with the idea of trying to get this street legal (- Full hydro)...

    Got a few pics:

    Sounds good man, I'm sure it will be as purdy as the last one.

    Full hydro on the street is NP, but you need to find the "right" mechanic to safety it.. I can do 120 with my thumb on the steering wheel.

    Let's just say that the pace on O.D. was just a bit fakked up, even for me. I ain't doing that again. !!!!

    Hopefully by Spring 2014.

    True Dat. I just look at it from a "What did i pay for VS what did i get". It's my own fault also as i never checked but..... The dude was very unresponsive (Personally, i think he was just upset to let it go..). I had even sent an email ensuring that everything was buttoned down before i pick it up. That's what irks me more than anything really.

    Holy Crap. You are right... Wowza... The asking's 4K less than what he paid me for it almost a year ago! Plus the ad's all fawked up and incorrect on the axles *lol*.. Now... How can i buy it back, part IT out and keep the parts i want like the blasted frame/body/cage, etc and then sell the other one off and come away ahead of the game... Hmmmmmm....

    Do it! Between shipping, taxes and all the other bull sh!t it's worth doing.

    Hey, do you know off the top of your head how much wheelbase stretch was added to fit the 545RE?
