I thought about it. Most of that stuff is 1/4 ton correct? I just sold a 67 cj6 that didn't run maybe a year ago wish I still had it. It had axles transfer case three speed. It would have made things easy.

Sorry I didn't get this sooner. My drum face to drum face is 63 1/2" +/- 1/4" my best measurement without removing the rear wheels.

No, those are mid-size 1/2 tons. Axles are wider than CJs. Earlier ones had the same 5-lug pattern as CJs, but later on they went to the GM 6-lug pattern. You just need the front axle, unless you want to change ratios or have issues with the original rear.

Ok. Thanks ho455. I didnt know that about the axles. Do you know what era jeeps off hand if not I can look it up. Also boththe front spindles and the rear axles are now 5 lug on my truck. It has a disc brake conv. In the front. The rear axles has shock mounts that arent being used so im going to guess its not original. The shock mounts are bolted to the leaf spring mount. Someone im aure had a great time piecing this thing together.

I'm no Jeep expert, but I believe '70 was the first year for 6-lug

not to sound like a big prick but your rear suspension has some bad stuff going on there .

double stacked blocks = bad stuff .

then the unbolted wedges with double stacked blocks = bad stuff.

try and make new or get premade blocks with angle you need and hight and swap them in place .

seen to many bad things happen with stacked blocks and those style un secured wedges you have on the bottom of the napco made lift blocks .

Re: NAPCO Thread

My dad called those June Buggy's. I haven't seen one working since I was in junior high. They had pretty much gone away by then as most of them were made out of WWII government surplus 6x6's that had the big winch behind the cab. Folks would move one of the rear axles forward as close to the cab as possible, chop the frame off, and make an arch( not as nice as that one has) out of the piece cut off and go logging. We had part of one out behind the barn that we played on as kids. That one is pretty nice shape it still has glass in it.
Thanks for the memories.

I remember all the WWII surplus trucks in logging when I was a kid. I guess this is a 2wd June Bug kinda rig:

Speaking of June Bugs, I remember doodlebugs also, mostly on farms. I want one...or to build one. Screw rat rods, come rolling up driving a doodlebug and you'll steal the show

A few I don't think I saw posted yet. The ambulance (next post) was at the fall 2016 Goodguys in Fort Worth and was beautiful. Great thread, glad it came back to the top.
