Re: New Body for CJs

I couldnt do that to my 74 ,,, but if I ever get one of those square headlighted jeeps look out ,,, It looks to short for me anyway ,,, At 6'2'' Id be hittng my head ever time I drove it ,, Iv seen diferent bodys used on Jeep frames & I think these guys are wanting to get rich as they didnt like the idea of me wanting to advertise for them with a free body ,, But I dont think they will be a hit as I gotten the same responce from ever board Im on ,, I want a Flat fender CJ-2a body that bolts to my 74 & Id be happy ,, And as for a top I run one to hold my body togeather ,,, My 1980 has a soft top on it ..

Me, I like it... Get yourself a DJ for cheap and throw that body on it...

It would be fun.
