need help deciding on 78 or 72 cherokee which one?
I have the option of buyin either one of these vehicles. the 78 comes with a decent body w/ no engine, tranny or t-case but was a quadratrac jeep. has dana 44 axles with manual hubs up front. sprung under up front and over in the rear. springs outside of frame on rear. price 400 bucks.
Now i can purchese a 72 cherokee with a better lookin body and comes with a 258 I-6 3spd and dana 20 dana 44 axles. but with a destroyed clutch. runs doesnt drive. with spring over front and rear???? i think. the price. 300 bucks.
which one do i buy to build i plan on running 38's and i know u cant buy basically anything for the 72 including a lift or really anything else and I have my own drive train im going to dump in either vehicle a 351w t-18 and np245 w/dana 60's I plan on a spring over anyways. could i use cj or wrangler springs with their spring mounts or a later model wagonneer thats sprung under front and rear and put my shackles under the frame? really which one would be easier to build. or worth the money im leaning towards the 72 but the fact of limited parts availability puts a damper on my plans. pick.
sorry so long!!!!!
