    Sorry it took so long to reply, been busy with it. I don't know what a short nose version is, but here's a side view of mine.

    So far I have a new radiator, electric fan, water pump, Delco 3 wire alternator to power the fan, every inch of wiring has been cut out and being replaced with new, this time with a 12 circuit fuse panel, replaced everything that holds brake fluid and added a dual chamber MC and power booster, all new gauges and dash switches, front and rear lights and built the rear half of the cage. Only other thing in the works is a cheap YJ rear bumper/swing out tire carrier that'll be added.
