Ebay universal 7”. I think they list them as fitting Land Rover as well as jeeps.
I had to trim a few cooling fins on the back side to get them in the mounting bucket.FranzKeymasterJanuary 29, 2020 at 8:40 amPost count: 3101
BajaMike got his bumpers back from powder coating in near chrome. We installed them and wired fog light. She’s pretty much done minus some longer headlight adjusting screws.DozerParticipantJanuary 29, 2020 at 9:05 amPost count: 34
You guys have any specs on that baja as far as suspension goes? Tire size? I’ve always wanted to build one and theres a shell just down the road from me, already cut with the fenders and narrow eye kit like that and its been sitting under a barn for the 3.5 years Ive lived here and never moved.
That thing would look bad-ass in the garage next to my Jeep!RustabusParticipantJanuary 29, 2020 at 6:07 pmPost count: 1762

Front is a 6 inch wider beam with torsion adjusters, reinforced stock spindles, stock torsion arms, aluminum tie rods with international ends, Saco steering box, About 8 1/2 inches of travel, 235/75/R15 tires.
Rear has 3 x 3 trailing arms, 930 CV joints, no torsion adjuster, 31 x 10.5 R 15 tires, and 18 inches of travel.
it also has a 3 inch body lift on it.
We started building this car right around this time last year, in this thread, if you want to look back.
We will build it if it comes.DozerParticipantJanuary 30, 2020 at 12:50 pmPost count: 34
Thanks for the info Pat! We are going to stop by the place down the road this weekend and see if we can get a better look at that baja body and see if he’s willing to let go of it… hopefully he’s not a hoarder type whos going to “fix it up someday”… 🙄alykatParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 8:02 amPost count: 386

Yeah, those someday guys are a pain. It took me a while to get past that point on my own projects and move them along so others can finish them off. I still stop by once or twice a year to check in with a guy like that near Gateway who has a split bus that has been sitting for over 20 years.FranzKeymasterJanuary 31, 2020 at 9:15 amPost count: 3101
HEY! I am that guy. Someday.
Funny thing is nobody will buy from me when I do want to sell.alykatParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 3:38 pmPost count: 386FranzKeymasterFebruary 1, 2020 at 6:22 pmPost count: 3101
BajaMike drove the revamped tarmac terror home today. Looking golden.alykatParticipantFebruary 2, 2020 at 8:14 amPost count: 386

I have a 3 inch body lift for my ’65 and about to slap the body back on the pan. Did you guys (or on John’s cuz he’s running stock steering box) have to do anything crazy to make stock steering linkage work? I imagine I’ll have to cut the firewall steering column hole, right? ThanksFranzKeymasterFebruary 2, 2020 at 7:14 pmPost count: 3101
Yeah, dropping the steering column hole is all. Not hard.John JonesKeymasterFebruary 4, 2020 at 9:21 amPost count: 5910
I bet this thread gets busy soon when spring fever and tax returns start rolling in!!Pat KKeymasterFebruary 4, 2020 at 10:00 amPost count: 1172
Baird brought his bus down yesterday for spring maintenance.
Oil change, valve adjustment, new points, set timing, break adjustment, and a new Riviera Motors badge for his 63’ Riviera camper.
He picked up his bus and dropped off his T34 for the same treatment this morning.
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterFebruary 5, 2020 at 9:10 amPost count: 3101Scott SainParticipantFebruary 5, 2020 at 12:01 pmPost count: 183
I bet the wheels on the baja powderocated the near chrome would look fantastic.
