Yes it is the old members from the other side of the water.
Lose some of the body, tube the back third of the frame, build a new cage for it, stretch the wheel base to 105" or so and spring over the rear. Maybe next week Jim will want to do a rear 4 link with coil springs.

As some of you know, my CJ was looking a little rough after being flopped on both sides and then being flipped over in a "flat towing gone wrong" incident a few years ago. Well, life got a little busy for us for a few years (aging parents, kids going to war, kids getting married), so the CJ was on the back burner.
I had acquired a YJ tub to put on the CJ and was about ready to get it back together when hurricane Isabel decided to visit. A very large oak tree crushed my 2 Comanches and a large limb went across the wheel wells of the YJ tub. I was ready to take the tub to the scrapyard, but Paul decided we should go this route instead. ;D
Trying to keep this low budget, so will probably keep it leaf sprung and use my old running gear. (Unless I change my mind again next week and decide to go links and coils in the rear )
