YJ dream build

Just for kicks and grins if you could build a YJ any way you want how would you do it? What kind of imagination do you got?

Nitromethane powered engine / carbon fiber body ?

Just found this in a search, cuz I wanted to ask the same thing!

I have a 99 Ford F250 SD 4X4 with a V-10 and 5 speed. I can not get the idea of stuffing all that running gear into a YJ out of my head. Makes no sense, but that's what I want to do.

No money and common sense are the only two things holding me back.

My ultimate YJ is a Unimog 406 that I'd put a Jeep emblem on and square headlights.

Good Luck, L.M.

Back in the late '60s, Con-Ferr in Burbank (only a few miles from my house) was producing Toyota Land Cruisers with a Chevy 327 powerplant! Definite 'go anywhere' vehicles in those days!

I drooled, sweated, had 'feelings up my leg, ala Chris Matthews!'. But I was also only 16 or 17, so no way I could afford one!

I really wanted one so I could beat my dad's '50 Willys with a 289 stuffed under the hood!

If I could find an original one I'd grab it, just for the nostalgia! Con-Ferr was an innovator in early off road mods!
