I bought this jeep thinking it was what I wanted, and it was, but like most of you know once you get the itch it’s hard not to want to go BIG. So I’m selling it. My family is growing, and I’m ready to part with this rig, and step up to a buggy.

 

All in all a great toy. Jeep has wheeled Clayton, Cass, SMORR, Disney, etc. Jeep was built for 4’s and 5’s and will hold up.

 

Jeep is located in N.W. Arkansas

Ha....Ha....Ha Justin.
My game plan is to build a one-ton 4-seater tube buggy.  I'm going to start stock piling some parts first though.  I have a 350, 700r4, and a 14 bolt rear. 

I know where a high pinion 60 is I will probably pick up in the next few weeks and going to look at some tires tomorrow.

The plan is to buy about 400-500 ft. of tubing, 350, 700r4, (tansfer case is still questionable but probably a 241), 60 front, 14 rear w/ 5.38's, welded both ends for now, air shocks, on 39.5"-42" tires. 

I just want something that the whole family can wheel hard and not worry as much about breaking.

Well...........I might start with 250-300 feet.  OKAY!?

But if I'm the one bending and welding it might take 400-500 feet.:D

I know a guy who has Bend-Tech Pro and can draw an entire chasis up for yea so you don't buy to much tube.  It tells you how long to cut the tube, how many degrees on the bends, where to notch, and it will even print out a template for the notches.  Now who would that be, Oh yeah ME!!!!.   I also have Bend-Tech Sheet Metal now for doing plate work.  Even thinking about buying a Torchmate at the end of the summer.
