    of course! The pulley cable set-up was not original - I think it was used because the original set-up did not have clearance with the v8....not exactly sure what I am going to do with that yet, but thinking a cable set-up like on my cj which works pretty well....I also don't plant to be wheeling this thing too hard or getting it all crossed-up....but a traction device in the rear would be nice....

    A double set of brake pedals for Jen on the passenger side - right rear brake / left rear brake - like farm tractors?

    A double set of brake levers between the seats somewhat like the drift cars have?

    I kid - though my mind does consider it...

    A locker would take all of the fun out of this ;-)

    Cutting breaks? Thinking power loc lsd would be about right....that is a long way off though.

    Any suggestions on cutting out the old motor mounts with a cut-off disk on a 4.5" grinder...other than possibly removing the brake lines first? Kind of feels like once I do this, there isn't any turning back....right now I can still put it back together the way it was....

    nope, no torch or plasma cutter - pretty simplistic and crude here....I don't have a sawzall either, but it might work....I am most comfortable with the cut-off disk as that is what I've used a lot, so maybe try that, and can always clean it up with the grinding wheel/flap disk....

    A cut off wheel should work fine, looks like there is plenty of room to access it. I was given a torch setup a few years ago, don't use it much but it is handy for some things.

    Wasn't too bad with the cut-off wheel....lower front corners didn't quite have enough clearance for the 4.5" angle grinder so used my smaller air tool - its slow (not enough air flow for continuous use) but only needed an inch or so on each one....have to clean it up a bit with grinder and hopefully that will allow plenty of room for test fitting the sbc and sm465 etc...may still have to do something with the steering....one step at a time...
