    Jeepster

    Putting my project for sale.

    Mostly stock 71 Jeepster drivetrain:
    225 Dauntless odd fire V6, with HEI ignition, runs strong, fires right up
    T14A manual, new seals
    Spicer 20 t-case, new seals, twin stick shifter

    Frame reinforced, custom cage tied into floor and frame and firewall.
    Dana 60 front, 5.38, welded, Warn hubs, Solid cover
    13 bolt rear, 5.38, Yukon Grizzly, disc brake conversion, Solid cover
    Pictured on 40" ProComp Xtreme M/T tires, comes with (4) nearly new 38" Falken race tires.
    (4) 17x9 ProComp wheels

    Corbeau front seats
    PRP rear bench
    Speedhut gauges, with GPS speedometer

    What it needs:
    complete exhaust
    coilover mounts (4 14" Radflo coilovers are included)
    fuel tank mounted and fuel line ran (fuel tank included)
    drivelines (includes rear driveline that needs to be shortened)
    power steering box is mounted, needs lines made and hooked up to the steering pump

    Lots of work into this so far, but I lost interest. If this does not sell complete, I will begin parting it out. I'll add more details as I remember them.

    $10k, OBO, will trade for 4 seat SxS

    I wish I was building this and not my TJ. I really love the look of these.

    Interested in this but I am out of town for a couple of weeks. I like the commandos. You have done some nice work. I put the speedhut gauges into my 42 flatfender. I really like the setup. I would like to come check it out if you still have it on the 17th.

    Yes, it's linked, but sitting with frame on the trusses. That's the first picture in this thread.

    Both front and rear lowers attach to that subframe you see here.

    That's a lot of work you've put into it for 10 grand. Pick any shop in town, have that much work done and see how much it would cost. I think it's a hell of a deal !

    Whatever steer you want to put on it. It has a tie-rod and a draglink that needs to be shortened, but the rod ends are good.

    Yep, a lot of work into the case and frame reinforcement. But no time to finish the project. So selling it for the cost of parts pretty much.

    $3000 axles
    $1500 coilovers
    $500 wheels
    $1600 tires
    $500 seats
    $600 gauges
    $300 HEI conversion
    $1000 links and joints

    and that's about $9000 right there. A pile of tubing into the roll cage, sliders, seat mounts and subframes and you get a free Jeepster tub and drivetrain with title.

    I will consider all offers, just no trades for other project vehicles, unless it's a 4-seat SxS.
