not exactly, this started life as a 2000 3500 hd 2wd gmc. now after removing about 6 1/2 feet from the frame and tossing the dually axle. then throwing in some 63 inch long rear gm leafs and 56 inch long rear leafs up front. and a d60 front and d70hd rear and a propane 454 and i still need the adpters to install the 4l80e and np205. and it got some new 42 inch iroks and black steel wheels that will have beadlocks installed. my plan now with the cab is tomove the column over and cut the width i need for a jk width body is to cut off what i dont need off each side and the from front grille to back corner is to skin it with 1/8 inch steel. and cut in the door openings and wheel openings and build flares off that. i now have a jk hood and grille. it will have 4 door openings just like a unlimited. i must miss my old jk unlimited pretty bad.:dontknow2: i started this project months ago but couldnt get much done since i only had 1 double car garage, but since i moved i have 2 double cars. so now i can really get rolling. heres some pics to start .



it will be completly torn down when done and the frame and axles will be painted black and evrything else will be painted or cleaned.

well i decided to move the front axle forward another 3 inches and redrill the rear axle spring pad and top plate centering pin 2.5 inches forward so it would set the axle back 2.5 inches. my wheelbase will now be 109.5.
still need to box in the front bumper, but heres pics anyway.

well i have been working alot and that all out of town, so have got anything else done. but i started thinking about just finding a jk tub from a junk yard. to make my build go alot smoother and came across a 07 jk with about 22,000 miles and some driver door and 1/4 panel damage and rear axle broke for 5 grand. so my d60 front and 70hd rear are going in it. and its getting converted to leaf springs front and rear. moving both axles foward and backwards a few inches each. and cut out the wheel wells a little and do some steel corners and front fender and flare combo. and mabey later a 454/4l80e/205 swap. heres some pics
