    What do you guys think about this Jeep, I know its pieced together body wise but it appears to be clean. I am looking for a V8 powered flattie set up for 4wheelin.

    Oh, being pieced together really isn’t a big deal to me .. I just like to point it out to others so they can learn what to look for when buying a jeep. Someday, I hope to have an all stock, all-the-right-pieces jeep. Until then, mine will be pieced together too.

    Regarding this jeep. I think it’s likely a really solid jeep. My impressions from the pictures are positive. There’s been a good deal of work done on it. First of all, it’s not all that easy to fit a v8 and a turbo 400 into the short wheel base flattie, but it looks like it was done and done cleanly from the pics. I didn’t notice this before, but the front shackles have been reversed, which I prefer. I think the drive train should be plenty strong enough to get you where you want to go jeeping.

    What I’d ask about and check out closely is the frame. Find out if it is a CJ-2A frame or a later model? Look for cracks. You’ll really want to have a later model frame because the 400 small block will likely twist a CJ-2A frame into a pretzel (or at least weaken it over time). Also look to see if they replaced the front crossmember with something that’s strong enough to handle that big engine — The likely had to cut out the original cross member to fit in the engine, tranny, radiator.

    Finally, the owner likely has alot invested in it, but I think it’s unlikely that the seller will get $7900 for it based on the other jeeps I’ve seen available.

    Feel free to ask any more Qs,

    – Dave

    Thanks for the info. How can I post a picture of my dads Jeep on here? Nothing fancy, just some cool old pictures. Not forsale, he doesn’t even have it any more. Also, any idea how to find his Jeep? He sold it in the 80s.
