Goal is to build a one ton BUDGET DO ALL. Want a snow run , hunting, legal "jeep". Trying for under $5000
1) Bought a 79 ford one ton truck for axles,drivetrain. Has a srw 60 front, 60 rear 4 speed and 205 t-case. 400 big block motor. Truck has 50,000 original miles.

2)Bought a LJ tub from Zane.He got from Daves, has damage, nothing steel corners from poison spyder cant cover up.

3) Have a yj frame.
Going to stretch the yj frame 10 in middle and add 5 to rear. This is a budget build so keeping it simple with leaf spring suspension.

Body fits a little better. Only 2 body mounts line up. Have too move 8 mounts. Cut old off frame and make new ones.
