Ya we hear ya, town/subdivision living can suck.


If the diff is 90% ready to go it might take 3 hrs to pull the 10B and roll it out the front, then rolling the 60 under and doing up the 3 ubolts and 2 straight bolts and setting it back down then deal with hooking up brake lines, steering, shocks and drive line.


I will say that you can almost bench press a 10B in, a 60 ... nope, so at least have a buddy around.

Ehhhh, two guys can heft a 60 around. Does it suck, yeah, but doable. The other option is moving dollies. They'll fit between a 2ft area and make your life easy. Totally doable!

Yup! Ben thinkn bout that myself. After talkin w/you guys and doing more research I'm convinced that a 60 in front is the way. I don't see this happening any time soon the way things are shaking-out around here with other projects etc., but at least I wont be buying anything else for a 10B project anytime soon! Other areas that need work or improvement on are engine, cooling system, and electrics. Future plans include (aside from the 60/14) front winch bumper and winch, rear bumper w/swing away, wheels and tires (35's on there now), lights, and roof rack.

In the meantime, I've got a '77 jeep Cherokee w/401 that I promised my 14yr old grandson would be his, that needs a ton of work as well. Yes I'm sticking w/the 401 inspight of all the old wives tales about oiling problems (easyly taken care of during re-build), and they lend themselves well to building for O.R. torque with fairly good AMC and aftermarket parts availability.

Just like most, I'm on a limited project budget that gets funded once a month after everything and everyone else is taken care of. I mean I would be happy to live outa the Burb while working on her, but can't figure out where to mount my 60" flat screen and recliner!*#!

It's better than on cardboard in the dirt, when the weather gets cold where I am all work stops til spring.
If it's above 40 degrees I will get out there accomplish at least something.
I need a shop bad and I think it will be my number one goal for next year.
All I want is something big enough fit one car in, just a cement floor and one of those metal structures would work.

..."something big enough fit one car in"...


Yeah, that works for about a week. Then you'll wonder why didn't you make it a bit bigger for some tool boxes, and a bit more room so you can use an engine lift without hitting a wall, some shelving for parts & accessories, run some 220V in so you can use a welder, air compressor in that corner....on and on...

It's like the old horse trailer problem. A neighbor explained it to me really well. You always get a trailer one horse bigger than you need. That way when you take a friend along you got a spot. Same with cars. When you get a new 4 wheeled friend you got a spot for it

Those are all the kind of 'problems' I'm looking forward too!
