I need some help deciding about a project buy. I have built a car with and engine swap, can paint, weld, and wire with making smoke. Car has even won trophies. I want a wheeler but not too hard core. I need to be able to make a 7 hour drive to visit my son. He is the Jeeper
The project sis described as such:
Small block Chevy
GM 4 speed and transfer case
Complete body minus doors
Corporate 14 bolt 8 lug
Dana 44 8 lug with flat top knuckles
Jeep is sitting on stock springs and engine/tranny/transfer case is in place.
I need to purchase:
2 doors, all seats, radiator, both drive shafts, lift springs (leaf).
Now has new rims and 36" military surplus tires. I know the tires will have to go eventually.
Doing all work myself any idea of the parts cost? Used doors and seats of course.
Are the axles good for this rig?
Any ideas appreciated.
