    Default Jeep TJ "truck" with V8 $5,500



    Very interesting rig. Reminds me of a Scrambler.

    looks like a Brute.

    would be very carefull on this as who knows how they cut and welded the frame.

    looks realy nice and the 117" wheel base will work realy nice.
    but this thing screams for Tons at at least 37" tires at least

    That's a big girl! I kinda like it, but agree it needs proportionally bigger tires to make it right. For 117" WB, I'd probably have used a JKU frame and extended the very rear section of frame to support the extra bed length behind the rear wheels... less stress on the frame there than between the wheels

    Since they swapped in the V8 from a Ram, I personally would have just put the Jeep body on the Ram. Might have been an easier swap. I agree that the framework may be questionable.

    Ram frame is a touch wider.
    The body mounts would have been a challenge.

    If it was decent it could be a good start.
    But it needs long arms 1 tons and 38-4
