hopefully it would come with a soft-top too.

[/ QUOTE ]Looking at the picture, I think I see a seam where the top meets the body. The top is also matte finish too, where the body is gloss. I'm wagering it's removable. It looks a lot like the one on mine other than being square at the bottom edge.

Where's the rollbar? Inside?

That's a good question. I may have missed it in another post somewhere, but what are your plans for a rollcage Taz?

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.

Re: Cool Jip!!!

Hey Taz,
There is a recycled plastic simulated wood product out there that looks VERY much like wood, can take a "stain" well and behaves much like wood for cutting. I used some in a Habitat for Humanity neighborhood garden. We used them because they were cheaper than wood and lasted longer with no maintence.

Re: Cool Jip!!!

If I could afford it, Id buy one right now! I think it would make a nice wheeler, and I could stick a can back on it and make it my tent. Id buy one in a heartbeat if I had the dollars.
