Hey everyone, I recently acquired a 1948 Jeep that I am planning on restoring and making off road ready. I am really excited about this build and looking forward to seeing what I can turn it into. Here are a few pictures of what it currently looks like (Fenders, hood and windshield are there just not on the jeep at this time).
And here is what I am thinking:
Something like that is what I would like to do. I plan on getting a custom cage built that incorporates the seat mounts as well and relocate the gas tank to the rear. No rear seat, but a shelf for a cooler and jerry cans and the spare will be mounted as it is now but centered. I wasn't planning on stretching the frame or anything like many do with these jeeps, but I plan on fitting some 35" super swampers and a nice wheel and then as far as suspension goes, I am either going to go with new leaves that offer 4" of lift all the way around with a new shock, or have some mounts fabricated for coilovers on all four corners. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Will update as I go, but for now I am waiting on it being delivered to my house
