While I don't want to do this to my jeep I'm interested in seeing how this goes for you. I would assume with a project of this caliber you are planning on upgrading the power plant as well? I think it will take a lot of times and lots of money. Do you want this to be a show vehicle or use it?

Also something you may want to consider is you wont ge 20% of the $$$ you invest in this project if you ever sell it.... Sounds like you have the initial idea in your head but there are a ton of variables that you probably haven't even considered or thought about yet. It is not as simple as adding 2 wheels......

This bad boy is currently on Ebay. Could make a good parts donor car. http://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/bar/3801078032.html.

The current owner wants $2500

Seems like you'd be decreasing its amount of utility. I don't get it. Has no purpose.

wont turn real well.

i would just buy a deuce and a half, done and done right. no need to hack something together.

we have a guy here in one of the local clubs has two of these bad boys. wont fit on some trails. but it can pull a junked vehicle out of the desert on clean up runs that jeeps can not.
