Default one ton CJ5

I was building a xj with this drivetrain, but decided I wanted a solid frame for a foundation, so I scored this 78cj5.
Ive got a better condition tub to swap
using the 5speed out of the xj
using the dana 300 with twin stick
summit racing wire harness
All new gauges except orig speedo
Baja SS seats front and bench rear
one ton axles, geared an locked
42" Iroks
4 link front and rear with 2.5 air shocks

So funds have siezed progress for a bit, but got the 302 tore down, cammed it, resealed it up, come to find out its the H.O.

Just recieved my adapter plate for motor to tranny, pilot bushing and
Motor mounts from ford to cj5 frame. Trying to save some time so I can drive it this summer.

Also went with 4'' lift rustys offroad YJ leafs for the front end, should be here by this weekend!
