Prob why the guy is selling it, and you can see the front is not bolted in.
Yeah I saw it wasn't bolted on so I would salvage what I could from from my Jeep to put onto that Jeep and then buy a new grill and fenders. And the 10 bolt one I'd just drop the Axels and whatever else and put mine on it. I'm thinking of purchasing the whole roller as is if it's 750 that SOA kit sounds enticing I would just have to change the axels with mine I'm assuming since their alignments off or something.

So, I've decided I'll be trying to work out what ever deal I can to get the whole frame I'm looking to give 600 for everything depending on the condition of the frame. Let me know what any of you guys think. For new guys to the thread heres the frame I'm talking about: http://battlecreek.craigslist.org/pts/5018135060.html

I would take the frame but not the rest. SOA and they kept the track bars?

Those are prob stock axles. No sense swapping yours in, just wait until you have your hands on some beefier axles to swap in. The welded locked rear would be a fun upgrade. Sounds like fun! Take advantage of everything being apart, sand all down and treat with por15 and hardened top coat. A good zinc primer would be good too

seeing as he listed he would sell just the frame for $400 I'd be all over that!!

get just the frame, sand it down paint/ repair any rust /etc. then start moving your components over...

The frames missing an engine mount. I can weld that on but do you think the SOA kit with it for 500 would be worth it? I don't think it had the steering arm with it but by the looks of it had the brake relocaters with it.

Have you decided what your build will be? Before you go buying someone elses aborted project you might want to consider how big you want to go and what the jeep will be used for.

The Jeep would be my DD but, I wanted to put at least 33's on it. I was looking at the SOA and saw it as my chance to get into one of my dream projects that i've had for it. I would do some offroading this summer and probably go up to the dunes but, i'd mainly drive it. Do you think it'd be worth it? Also, whatever I do I have until August to get it finished. I've already started taking photos of my entire jeep and where everything goes where so I know where everything goes back to.When it comes time to actually take it apart I'm going to make videos of everything I do and set them into folders so I know how to put it back on when I get there. Let me know what you think of all this guys. Is this a good plan? Or is it doomed to fail? I do although have a few buddies who have done a frameswap in a weekend that I can ask help for too.

Sandwich ziplocs and a permanent marker are going to be more useful than videos imho.
If you have experienced people helping you its not that complicated.
I'd put all new brake lines on it while it's easy too.
SOA takes dollars and time and planning. I would do a SOA at the same time, but I can weld, fabricate, and I won't want or need videos to reassemble. Ymmv and I am not being or trying to be insulting but it sounds like at your current experience level you'd be far better off to make the frame swap a runner and do the more advanced SOA later after much planning.

Shackles and D-rings: different things!

Personally, I do not care for the bolt on SOA kits

Soa with lift shackles seems like a bit much for a daily driver.

lifts dont hurt mpg, unless we are all getting hypertechnical and doing the calculus for aerodynamics. The problem about a lift that hurts mpg is when we install bigger tires. Bigger tires means less mpg and a slower accl and brakes that wear out fast.
