wasnt there a company a few years ago that made a tube kit to amke basically a "rock crawler esque" body that bolted on a cj frame.

I am half contemplating body options now that my tiny cj5 is driveable again.

otherjohnny: You need to start with a jeep frame. Judging from the pics you've posted, you'd be better off buying the whole diablo chassis.

it is pretty cool but i dont think it would work for me. good starting point for some ideas one of those deals where for it to fit my needs i'd ahve to change enough stuff i could probably get one of you to ork your mojo. i might be a little better suited with a good internal cage system..

i'd almost think if they had a named chassis they might have a few models to chose from

yah but i cant afford it. im in process of buying another yj with a solid frame and body and a blown engine. going to use the rust bucket for a few parts i know it needs and a spare set of axles until i go full width or something bigger standard width. trust me a full buggy chassis is a dream. but also a pita due to trying to make it street legal. lol
