Custom frame?

Well found this on craigslist, Looks like someone put a lot of money/time into it. Their asking just over what I see some regular frames go for.

Looks to be set-up for a cj in the last picture, Would imagine a yj would fit.
Also it said it's set up for a 350, which I already have.

"It is set up for a Jeep but can easily be modified to fit almost any body. It is set up to hold a Small Block Chevy motor. Included with it is everything you see in the pictures of the chassis. The last picture is just to show you how it looked with a body I had originally mocked up. The dual Borla ProXS stainless steel mufflers and exhaust are included. Again it is set up for a Jeep style because of the passenger side drop of a drive shaft as well as the body armor. I will throw in a bunch of spider web gussets from Blue Torch Fab also. These pictures do not do it justice. The brake lines and Stainless Steel fuel lines are installed! Make an offer. I want to get this out of my shop as it is taking up valuable real estate. I also have a couple of sets of axles that you can put under this also."


What would you guys say to this? Is this something that would take tons of modifying to work? Or possibly just swap everything from my wrangler to this?

it really depends on the guy that built it what will bolt up and what won't...

a YJ might not drop onto a CJ frame as easily as you think either.

I'd probably approach it the way I do most things... plan for the worst, and hope for the best.

He said a yj would bolt up. The rear armor would need to be cut some or the tub altered some. I'm thinking of getting it.

You should ask more questions thats a big move ask what suspension its set up for. I think I see shock hoops and in the picture with the body you can clearly see coilovers. Maybe a yj body will bolt up but not its suspension

Yea I see that. I'm just thinking that's such a good deal to pass up. I just moved in with my girlfriend and her dad can help me do a lot more stuff. Plus I got a lift and every tool possible now I'll ask him more about it and see if he has suspension parts.
