Brain storm..tell me what ya think!

OK, I'm in full disassemble mode on my CJ-7, I've robbed a 3560, sm465, np205, D44, and 12 bolt which I was going to swap all into the Jeep. Heres the storm....I have access to anything I want from the truck, the body is a vertible rust farm, but the frame is stout, what whole be the pros and cons to swaping the Jeep body to the truck frame, and anyother problems associated with the swap. I can build just about anything if I put my mind to it...let me now what ya think.

Re: Brain storm..tell me what ya think!

I have thought at length about this, and even procured a Chevy Suburban frame to use later on. I like the Chevy frame because it's open channel and not closed like the jeep. Move the spring hangers under the frame where they're supposed to be and mate the body. Sounds like a lot less work having everything mate up.
