    I have been tossing the color around , of the sept. 1970 ren I, have.

    Well i decided to go back to the original orange!... But i am going to have it wrapped, in 3m matte orange vinyl wrap.

    And since it has the 454 in it, ...

    Should I put the renegade I decal and V6 emblem like factory, OR....A renegade decal but instead of the I/II, and v6 emblem do a..

    SS (hehe) renegade SS

    and a amc v8 emblem or a cross flag, or 454ss,

    I think it sounds cool, I don't know what vinyl wrap is, but matte orange sounds great along with REN I stripes.
    Then,
    JEEP
    SS

    Definitely need the 454SS somewhere on it. The wrap idea is cool and is easy to replace if you change your mind.

    As soon I get a camera,my phone on my camera sux! purple donkey booty .

    My wife is out of town atm with her phone , and her phone is what i use for pictures .

    when she gets back ill post some pics.

    I should have posted alot more pics of the build but, I am not picture guy, AT all. LOL. Hense ! the sucky, non upgraded phone! But i will i swear.

    This is 3M matte

    [​IMG]

    this is the jeep emblem i was thinking about

    [​IMG]

    or theses

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    all of these are just ideas ATM

    The motor is a GEN VI short block, with 13cc dome pistons, 3964291 cast heads( the heads are true 427/435 hp heads) they are set up for a 1969 427 stock eliminator class.

    Dual quad 600 cfm holleys.

    It has loud exhaust on, (old scool cherry bombs.)

    Should i leave the rumbley sound, or put real quiet mufflers on it and put the V6 emblems LOL, as a sleeper old farm jeep.

    I was going to do that .

    then put a set of electric cutouts on it, and when they opened up , a set of swinging balls would drop down in front of the rear end,

    So when they heard it running sounding quiet but still good, I would say ..(wait untill its nuts drop,) hit the switch the swinging balls would drop and then it would be open headers LOL

    But that wouldnt work if the lil jeep is a she!! LOL , Like my wife wants it to be , to me It is a he and a little badd *** LOL

    Have to ask, is this still 4x4 and if so, what is the transmission, transfer case, and rear axle?

    As for the emblems, yes, forget the AMC badge. I would be putting on the checkered flags but would keep them guessing on the displacement.

    Still has the Dana 44 offset 30 spline,
    4x4 and tranny, was a power pro chain drive,( paid1200 bucks, sold it for 900 :( ouch live and learn) and 4l80e manual valve body with jakes little black box

    But at the track (sand drags/mud) they wouldnt let me run in street legal ,only got to run 6 passes to see what it would do ,last season,ran 4.25 at 72 mph(300ft)
    I had to many mods,and they wanted to put me in pro mod truck LOL, thats the 800 hp plus rides,non street leagal, even tho mine is street legal,(the chain drive was their biggest frown in the street class, they didnt like the dual quads much either.

    So this season to get in the super street class, I am doing and undoing some mods to put me in that class.

    Asphalt

    When i took it to the track to tune it .

    In the eighth mile with the dana 44 4l80e, it went 6.58 at 103 mph, on the second run. They stopped me in the pits ,Its to fast not to be licensed .So it went fast enough to break into the high to mid 10s 1/4.

    So they said no more until i upgrade LOL . And It would be licensed a super street class as well.

    Now I cant run again at that track until, i Upgrade, the roll bar , after market rear axles, looped drive shafts, power shut off, relocate battery, and 4 point harness, tranny blanket, and some other safety wire stuff

    I expected a lot of this.But good googly moogly what we do for fun ..HUH!!
    As of right now, power shut off, relocate batter, safety wire, roll bar steel is on the way, tranny is in , only thing left is rear end,tranny blanket, drive shaft loops, and roll bar.

    They all bucked up in street classes, about the 4l80e,(too new for the year) they where OK with a turbo 350, or turbo 400, but no power glides, or trans brakes.( in my class), But can run any production ,transmission or heads of the era,
    factory aluminum heads allowed,(no aftermarket aluminum heads or cast iron)

    So.....
    I took the 4l80e out its in the shop, and sold the chain drive(the chain drive put me in pro mod,in the mud classes, more then any other mod). And the dual quads puts me out off any pure street class) I bucked up because the 409 with dual quads was allowed, And they looked at me and said really??

    so I am Divorcing the dana 18 transfer case, And now it has a 1969 camaro muncie M21 4 speed

    Gears are 3.73 rear and front, any tranny gears are 2.2 1st, 1.64 second, 1.28 3rd, 1:1 4th

    But I may go to a centered rear end and get a divorced dana 300

    Dont know yet, that's why i asked in my tire post.

    I may keep the dana 18 no matter the rear end and get a warren overdrive, and build a offset ford 9 inch, 12 bolt, or dana 60 , with 4.11/4.10 .

    Dont really know I may just keep the dana 44 i got for the time being, it is a good one, and just be patient , and build a quick change rear end, I can get a cast iron IRS corvette dana 44 with 3.73 in it.

    I thought of narrowing some half shafts ,and doing a corvette , viper, or jaguar rear end , Would look awesome with a jag rear end with the discs next to the chunk.

    The rear end is out to either upgrade the axles, or the whole rear end. That is why i asked. That is where I am At ATM, picking new tires gears and rear end.


    Sorry for rambling and spelling

    HUGS all :)

    Like this emblem?

    [​IMG]

    Any suggestion on it would be great!

    I am fishing for Ideas.

    I also cant wait to test the new set up.

    I want to see if they will let me run in the Gear jammers club.

    If you are wondering why the muncie M21, and not auto,??

    Well it negates the dual quad penalty :) so I was well hell I am all for bagging gears LOL.

    I will try to get a video of it running.

    The cam is mild but shakes it, It is .618/.618 lift advertised duration 309/309, duration at .050 is 255/255, LSA is 108, LCA is 104

    The motor and body are solid mounted , so when it lopes at idle, the whole thing shakes hehe.

    Hey I just borrowed my neighbors camera if I can figure it out I snap some shots

    I like the idea of putting the SS over the V flag 454.

    Just use the SS from this pic.

    [​IMG]

    Then put this under it.

    I like RENEGADE SS with the Jeep and 454 under it. Way cool ride. I like the idea of keeping it all rusty and just clear coating it. Keep a quite muffler on it on the road. What a sleeper.

    Thats what I really want to do ,

    Most of the original, orange is still there , .

    I should leave whats left rust up the rest ,clear it,

    I would have to go with a way smaller tire on the street tho, to pull off the sleeper look
    find some old kelsey hayes jeep wheels Find some tires like.. flatfender willys prairie gold jeep.

    But they wouldnt hook up LOL, with those tires, on it, I could lock the hubs and spin all 4 tires enough, for someone to unbuckle the harness , get out walk around it and get back in and buckle back up LOL

    But I really like the sleeper Idea the best, With quiet mufflers and smaller tires , it would just be so unassuming , no one would expect it to be fast at all,

    And even more so if i put the v6 emblem back on it . :)

    ADD

    And I really dont know how quiet i gen get my camshaft, It has a nasty idel and lope to it, dose not sound stock LOL at all.

    If I told someone it had a stock cam in it , They would call me a lieing sack of doookey
