so i have a 1995 nissan hardbody that is fairly clean and am thinking of possibly putting yj drive train under it. I was wondering if any one knows someone or has done this them selves? I am going with yj because of the leaf springs and my lack of experience. i have found some diagrams of both chassis' but they are metric and I am converting them as we speak. I am sure I will need to do some modification to the chassis but I am cool with that. any help, hints, tips, or pictures of a similair project would be great.

that is going to take a lot of fab work. you know they make kits to convert your hardbody to a solid front axle on leaf springs. that might be the way to go, would be much simpler with all these calculations, and head aches either eliminated, or already figured out.

thankyou, and I saw the calmani one before, i was just wondering as far as for as cheap as possible goes. but it all depends on the job hunting. just graduated college and hopefully can start making more then 10 an hr.
thanks for the advise
build the Nissan as is. the YJ parts are worse then what you have on it now. Go to 4x4parts.com get a 3in lift with upper arms cut it up a little and run 33-35s. I wheel with a lot of Xterra and Nissan guys. and their IFS works just fine. Plus the YJ axles are trash.
this is why i post. i like opinions, they are always good for something.
i can get the kit from calmani to put a dana 44 under it for just 500.00 and i alreay have the dana and a 9" from an old ford project, any body have experiece on what it take to shorten that set? My plan is to make it look as clean as possible, no body cutting, no body lift, and restore the body. unless a find a clean jeep around here that i can aford, and still be able to build it. hope to keep the build under 10k.
thats a nice looking rig. and thanks for the tip, ill look into it.
my nissan aint charging right now, nissan says its the wiring harness but you know how those guys are, throw parts something will fix it" i hate that B.S.
