Not only did I buy It dirt Cheap, But it has a new carb, The engine rolls over, and everything to work. I am thinking about leaving it that way, and adding to it.

Re: My Jeep Buggy Is Home

I have an old postal that I was going to scrap but Had decided to do something similar to yours instead. Keep the 2wd drivetrain, ditch the body and weld up a buggy type frame out of tubing, then take it out to the desert and thrash the hell out of it! More fun than the 200 dollars I'd get for it from a wrecking yard!

Re: My Jeep Buggy Is Home

See if this photo is larger...

I am thinking of finishing the sides with cj panels to give it the look.

Re: My Jeep Buggy Is Home

That looks like one hell of a gas tank! What kind of fuel are you running? And what is burning it, you or the Jeep.

I wish I could take credit for that but someone else emptied it before installing it as a gas tank. I won't be running much fuel until I find a new Engine, found out today that the one on it has a cracked block.....
