A good price?

I'm looking to completely restore and build a yj from the frame up and I was wondering what a good price would be to buy my project jeep. I plan on only really using the tub frame fenders and hood and depending on the quality and wear on everything else it is probably gettting scrapped. Putting in a 350 and probably the NV3550 with new axels and suspension. What is a good starting price? I found a 89 yj for 1900 that runs.

Take into account the fact u can sell off all u don't use. Key to this is get a GOOD foundation
Cause fixing frame rust or body rust will eat u up on time and money.
Seeing we both in south u should find plenty of good project jeeps.
I have found a couple in our area do less that would be exactly what u need.

Pay whatever you want for your base jeep- if everything is going new anyway the starter jeep will be the very least of your expense. Almost inconsequential.

How many old threads actually convince *you* to read all 36 pages? http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/length-envy-build-thread-629700/
