It could be a nice setup.

Web wheelers on the internet are more worried about 3" body lifts than the people using them out on the trails are.

ok this is when someone posts the epic fail picture that likes like 2 jeeps wrecked at the bottom of a hill... until you realize its 1 jeep body and 1 jeep frame because the 3 inch body lift ripped apart...

You don't realy need a body at all!!!
Just remove it, add some brackets for the steering and seat, then get some 80's frome some old John Deere's and you're good to go.

Happy New Year

There are some pretty nice rigs out there that have 3" body lifts on them.

In my opinion, 35" tires and stock gearing is more of an epic fail.
