Possible new rig

I went to go and look at a flatty today, suposed to be a '46 cj2a though i'm not sure what the acutal year of it is because it has no title (though one of my buddies might be able to find it for me for a couple cases of beer). It was dark but it appeared in pretty good shape over all. It's on 38" cut gumbos which don't have a ton of tread left, spring over, goofy steering that looks really un safe, gas can in the back for gas, no cage, stock motor, needs a rear drive shaft and front end (blown up), stock drive train. It also inculded 2 rolling chassis with i belive 1 good motor, 2 trans and t-cases, 2 sets of axles, and a bunch more stuff like a top with no frame, radiator, stock gas tank of un known condition.

I'd trade him my jeep minus the engine, trans, and t-case for the willys, extras chassis, and pile of parts and enough cash to pay off my parents what i owe them for my truck and trailer.

I figure the willys needs real axles and a roll cage before i really start to wheel it which would cost some money and i have a garage and all winter to get it ready, though it would be nice to have it ready for some wheeling spring brake. I'm planning on getting a welder and bender pretty soon and could probably finance them with the extra willys parts.

Give me your thoughts and ideas, this is not a done deal by any means and i can't decide what to do so i'm looking to you guys for your oppinons

Here's a bad pic of it, it was dark and that's mud not rust

Re: Possible new rig

you are out of your mind andy. You wont be happy wheeling something like that after being used to your TJ. Even as cobbled as yout jeep is, it is alot better place to work from than something that old.

Re: Possible new rig

my tj is done and i have desire or palns to put it back together (i've started to part it out), it was just way too much of a disaster and i'm ready for something new/ a fresh start. I'm going to start with something new and wouldn't mind something simple like a willys though i'm open to many options, anything for full size jeeps, to xj's to a yj. Before this deal was presented to me i was thinking about getting a cj7 or yj and putting a little bit of lift, full cage, rear locker, and 32" muds on it and wheeling it and slowly building up a yj with either a 4.0 or tbi 350, sm465 or ax15, d300, waggy d44's, soa to be a stock mod comp jeep once i become mroe experianced/ a better driver.

You do realize that YOU made it that way, don't you? Or am I missing something? Keep the f-ing TJ. And if you purchase something else, it'd BETTER be your damn money being spent...not mommy or daddy's!!!

Re: Possible new rig

I know i messed up the tj and i have definetally learned from that disaster and i want to start over and build something that isn't a rigged mess. The parents are not giving me a dime for the new rig, i'm on my own when it comes to vehicles now and have a decent income for a college student selling used parts.

Re: Possible new rig

Unless that TJ feel out of an airplane and then got ran over by a tank, it has to be a better place to start than a Willy's. The Willy's is extremely short, which means you will have a pretty hard time getting a 350 in it and a 258 will be nearly impossible. I can't imagine what you have done to a TJ to make it so butchered, but whatever it is, it would still be less work to repair the TJ than build a Willy's.
