Re: Cool Jip!!!
Too easy to build, besides my personal property taxes on my '80 are only $18.75 a year. One years difference in the taxes would pay for the conversion. GreenMachine is half way there already.
Mine, being a 'glass body, would be real easy. I've already got the halftop and my AFW frame would be easy to extend. If I'd seen this earlier, and was consider doing it, I could have ordered the Scrambler frame.
If I were going to do it, I'd probably not do the pickup bed. I might be inclined to do a stake side flat bed with a depressed center below. I'd do a hinged or slide center section of the flat bed to cover the depressed center making a security compartment below, one thing that's needed with a Jeep.
Me, I'm gonna stick with the short wheelbase. I enjoy my turn radius and using those choice parking spaces that other people can't get into. And yes, I'm figuring on putting the side boards on mine like the Scrambler but I might make them out of fiberglass and just have the wood grain painted on.
