This jeep followed me home. Bought it from a member here, nice jeep just needs a few tweaks to be ready for the trails.

Doesn't look to be a hack job and one can tell money was spent in places wisely....PowerGen, Tom Woods, etc. Approve

That Go Devil doesn't look right. Maybe the crazy paint color. Tongue

You nailed it Stan! It reminds me of an orange!  I got the receipts for the drivetrain goodies from Herm- overdrive, rebuilt SM420, rebuilt D18 with 3:15 gears. 283 engine has the 2bbl does not smoke on startup or run. Working on swapping out the clutch to a hyd setup for better manners. It has bronco stock rims with 700-15 new tires,  came with 4 of Brennans disc swap brackets so I will be doing that soon to let the 9 inch move to someone else. 

Fatboy loves the seat covers just not the thickness of the back and seat,  just need to do a wheel house notch I guess.

the 2A has a electric fuel pump of which I am not a fan, guess I need to see if the push rod is still in the block, before I buy a stock fuel pump, and check clearances at the front axle housing. Ordered an AA clutch slave mounting bracket. 
Got it registered today and went out for a drive, runs great! idles fair. I'm going to have to figure out where the gas pedal likes to be so I can have my foot on the floor. I'm used to the roominess of my 3B and lack of horsepower so this new one will be a learning curve.

Interesting steering set up, would like to know more about it.

Nice Jeep!

It's a Ross that was moved over to the opposite side of the frame, using a homemade bracket and a couple of ujoints and an upper dash standoff to support the upper column. Seems to be a good choice for the ramshorn manifold with the genny mount cast on to the manifold. after a 20 mile test drive yesterday it worked fine, no excessive play.

Yesterday I began looking my throttle linkage over to see what I could do to help that out.  I removed the pedal from the linkage for a fix and checked the cable, it had maybe 5 strands holding the eyelet on it and I probably dodged a stranding by finding that.   I  located some replacement 1/16" cable and cable swages and replaced the damaged cable. I mounted my extra jeep gas pedal to the floor after removing the linkage rod off of it so it will rest on the linkage that was installed. 
 With a snowmagedon in the forecast this weekend down here in the Atlanta area, I figured I needed the jeep running to be able to get around.  Brown Santa brought the clutch slave mounting bracket, ordered some of the parts for the disc brake swap, at least for the front axle.
Removed the spacer on the upper steering column mount to see if it would increase the clearance for the belly to wheel situation. It did help and no issues with steering play, etc. I'll move onto the fuel pump later.  Dang forgot to order the master cylinder for clutch pedal while placing my order with rockauto.
