Since Chrysler didn't or hasn't come out the the Jeepseter what about making one? my Dad has a '68 Jeepster Commando that is built more towards the go anywhere style than the crusier I'm planning. I was thinking of starting from a SWB(CJ/YJ/orTJ) jeep frame and tub and going from there. It could cruse low for daily driving and raise several inches with a flip of a switch. the front could be IFS with GM components. Would AWD or part time 4wd be better? Hot Rod magazine featured a purple and yellow AWD '32 Ford hot rod a couple years back. it used a GM AWD transfer case and a chevy K1500 truck front differential. Any opinions on the "Jeepster"

A lowrider Jeep??? Yuck!!! /wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif I think anything resembling a truck or a Jeep has no business at all being a lowrider... Just makes it look kinda stupid, at best... /wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif Why would you want to use a form of "Inherently Flawed Suspension" IFS on a Jeep? Go solid axle, put a big 'ole lift on it, some 44" swampers, and if you put anything out of a GM vehicle, make it a GM engine, 4.3L or larger...

But what do you intend to use this Jeep for? If it's just cruisin' the 'hood, tryin' to look /wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif, I don't know about that, I prefer lifted vehicles (at least vehicles that were designed NOT to be lowriders) to lowriders any day, no comparion... I'm still trying to talk a friend of mine from lowering his 2000 Tahoe... /wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif I'd say go with a part time case, and solid axle... One more question, if you have it so it sits low, and then hit a switch and raise it up, how do you plan to run anything other than silly little tires? /wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif

Of course this is just my opinion... (The material found in this post is not to be considered a flame) (I use disclaimers so I don't get anyone upset.. /wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif)

Looks kinda like a prowler mixed with a Jeep.... The Jeepster is supposed to travel on highway with 1" of lift, and when offroading, can be raised to over 6" of lift from inside the vehicle...

Another Jeepgeek!
