Looking for a set of cj rods may take a set of truck rods if price is right. Must be football style.

Get ahold of Paul Kane on this forum, he has many sets at very reasonable prices
Thanks Greg, I wish that were still the case! At one time we had close to 500 OEM con rods. Many were sold, and many of them have been put into engines. The few that we have remaining are not CJ/Truck style and we need them for builds anyway.

That being said...TTAD if you need rods then understand that the regular passenger car rods are essentially just as strong as the CJ/Truck rods. All the OEM rods tend to break mid-beam most of the time (above the big end of the rod), so the CJ rod's extra material around the rod bolt is of little help. Either rod (passenger car or CJ/Truck) will serve most engine builds reasonably well once prepped for the application.
