Well guys... i was given a really good deal on a used XJ... its a green sticker XJ and last years Jeepspeed champion truck.... It is chassis and full racing cage only... no engine, drivetrain ect. which i kind of like because i have the option of doing whatever i want with this thing...

i know it doesnt look like much but the foundation is already their... most of the hard work is already done so i couldnt pass it up even if its on the low priority list of rigs that i need to finish.... im considering gutting the body and making a buggy out of it... sheet metal and tubing only :)

All the doors and fiberglass fenders come with the XJ... so if i wanted to turn it back into a nice XJ i could

so my questions to you guys is.... what should i make? should i make it into a full raced out Jeepspeed truck again? or should i make a good 4 seater rock crawler??? i do plan on doing a full coil over suspension on this thing... beefed up axles, and prob a supped up 5.0L... and no i dont want to put a diesel in this one :) want to keep it as light as possible... here are the pics i got of her...









let me know your guys opinions

For 400 bucks as long as the tubings all in decent shape you couldnt go wrong. If it was me i would build a 4 seater rock/trail rig out of it

thats what im thinking to do too... and from what i can tell all the tubing is in great shape... i cant wait to start this build but first thing first i need a rolling chasis so i need to figure out what susp im gonna go with and axles... this is the susp im thinking about: Rock Krawler Suspension, Inc.

its a XJ COMP 6.5 LONG ARM SYSTEM w/ REAR COIL CONVERSION

Transplant your CJ drivetrain into this. Then you will be good to go.

find an old wagoneer rusting away and use the drivetrain outta that!

My vote is for full hardcore buggy!
