Who would want a 14b front? The rears are bad enough for dragging. I've seen them done, just dont understand the reasoning behind it when they are not much if any stronger than a high pinion 60.

Its too much work and not enough gained....its still inches lower than a 10.25 and not nearly as easy to work on.

Did you see where Ibuildembig said he wouldn't cut it up? I didn't think there was anything he wouldn't cut in half.

Yes I did. Julie is on the no cut bandwagon too.

Maybe we should add a poll.

If it wasn't so rare, it would be no contest. Cut it up and make it huge. It's rarity has me on the fence. If it's rare but there's no market for one then cut it up. If it's rare and a nice example brings big cash, restore it, sell it and buy a buggy.

Ive seen jeepsters bring in the high 20's-30's at barrett jackson and mecum auctions. And since I have never seen one of those in person, it would be a no brainer for me.

I have always looked at vehicles like this:

If it was something neat to begin with, leave it be....if it wasn't, make it one of your own doing.

No one in their right mind would make a street reaper out of a 69 302 camaro, or a 70 boss 302 mustang would they? Im sure that there are some souless people that would and frankley that thought makes me ill. I am all for taking something no one wants and making something every dick head in the world wants in his garage, but to cut something up for a rig you might not even want in a few years if your hobbies change is just unthinkable....especially one of 100. Alot of my buddies and people online cringed when I cut up my crew cab truck, but my question was this; who the hell wants a 6 cylinder, 1 ton, rear seat delete, no bed, piss yellow crew cab ford?? no one....so I am making what I want out of it. Had it been something special which none of them ever were, I wouldn't even have bought it in the first place, cause I like to roll with beer, grinders, and welders
