    Default WJ buggy build

    i have a 2000 wj 4.7 that a tree fell on. so i am now in the process of building a buggy type thing out of it. it will be street legal but will have tube doors and no front fenders and lots of trimming done. will get 4-6" of lift and 35-37" tires. the back will get cut like my old zj to make it like a truck...kinda...this will not be as nice as the zj was. this one is being built to have lots of fun and not care if something get dented. here it is as i got it and how it sits now.and it will be getting an exo cage,bumpers,winch and a custom long arm suspension

    I'm looking forward to this build!!!! There's one similar on the "other forum" where he's chopping the rear. I'll find the link if you'd like.

    the guy did not have insurance on it. he was upset about and had it listed for 1200...i could not do that ...i believe in karma... so i told him i could not give him 1200 he said he could not go lower and i said fine .... how about 1600.... he had a very puzzled look on his face... i said i can not take avantage of you and at that price it would bother me because you cannot get a motor for that price from a junkyard. he said thanks and i said no thank you and drove it the 110 miles home with a clear title....just a bashed in roof.

    Wow, you're a good guy Troy. Truly warms my heart to hear about stories like that. I know you made that guy's day too, and probably restored a little of his faith in humanity.
