Off the top of my head your asking questions that I may have forgotten. Lmao
I think I did have to cut in to the roof Chanel a bit.
also had to cut down the corners of the truck cab.
so I could match up to the wag roof.cause the truck cab
Was an inch or two narrower at the top of the cab.
the cross member I did not figure in when making the cab.
I set the cab on blocks on the frame and cut out for the cross
member. Then boxed in the hole when I bolted on the cab.
I also did a hillbilly body lift of two inches.I took two sets
of body mounts from wags and stacked them on top of each
other.

just found the site and this was the first thread I read in its entirety. twice. lol. I am a painter and custom body guy by trade and I must give you lots of props on the work you have done. Like most I learned the hard way by trial and error. This my friend is a piece of work. Keep it up. I would love to see it completed some day.
I did a similar project 10 years ago with a 49 pick up and now I am inspired to tackle something like this with a full size.

Marie is needing to figure out value on this Jeep. Matt spent a lot of time and resources building it. Fortunately it is documented here.



I went up and took some current pics today and told her I would post them up so she can list it with a good idea of its value. and not just give it away.



It is rust free and is super close to being a driver. Drivetrain is in and complete. It's missing the starter and solenoid ( he removed for his other jeep)



It still sports the 401 with an aluminum intake and holley carb. th 400 and dana 20 t-case front axle is a dana 44. It has an aftermarket fuel tank mounted in the rear, and a warn winch bumper in the front. Suspension is a 4" rustys all spring, post mount lift. I think it has 31's right front is flat.



All body work and mods done by Matt are detailed in his build.


Here are some pics from today.

Wow, I would buy that if it weren't on the other side of the country! Does it have a clear title? Since it's an unfinished project, I would guess that its worth [to me] $3K-$4K. You'll have to find someone that isnt afraid to tackle a project like that to finish it.

I think the jeep has been sold, ( his widow had a buyer lined up a couple of weeks ago). Haven't heard anything since. Maybe we will see a new member with it.
