What should become of my 2001.....

Not sure what to do with the left over skeleton once I'm done pulling useable parts......


1. Cut the back off and turn it into an offroad trailer.

2. Make a crawler, already have a D60 kingpin from an 86 350, just add a 14 bolt, 5.0, etc....

3. Scrap it and continue to dump money into the Jeep.

4. USe it for a "shootin' car".

Nothing is going to happen for at least a year, but I hate having junk laying around w/o a purpose.


Thoughts?.....

If he tubes it... there's not much there worth keeping for a tube chassis, the cab being toast and all.

I wouldn't wheel my daily driver either though. I'd sell as much as I could and scrap the rest.

Keep it, find a decent cab in the JY, and build it into a crawler

If it gets built, it will be the frame only. I'll tube it, but build off the frame.

Thought about fixing it, but the drivetrain is being rebuilt for future use on the 05. I bought the wreck so I coudl rebuild the engine and have a spare trans/tcase. We plan on keeping the 05 for a LOOOOONG time.

I'd love to shoot/blow it up, but too many memories in that thing......
