TJ SolidWorks Model

I am looking for a 3D CAD model of a TJ frame, or even better, a TJ frame with body. Native Solidworks would be the best, but you what they say about begger's. Any 3D CAD files would be great. Does anyone know where I might be able to find these? I awould like to start designing a suspension for my TJ, but don't really want to waste time measuring and creating the stock frame model.

I don't want to be a mean guy but maybe you should do that all yourself. (measuring) IT will make understanding how these things work off road. I will say sorry now if you build like buggy's or something and all ready understand this. Just don't have the time to do the measurements. I can ask a few guys I know to see if they have them tho.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

What he is asking is if there is already a model of it so he doesn't have to recreate an existing cad key file. He could do this but it would be difficult and time consuming

Understanding is not the issue, time is. I am a mechanical engineer, and I work 80+ hours a week. I simply don't have the time available to reverse engineer my entire TJ frame. This is something that probably took 10 engineer's 2 years to do in the beginning. This is my third TJ, and instead of buying a lift kit, I want to design it this time. If no one has the information available, then I will have to do it myself. In the real world of engineering, models already exist on most existing products. With all the Jeep guru's out there, I just assume someone has already done the research, and are willing to share. At least I hope there are.
