Frankenstein Street Queen

Ok. Plan is to take the best of CJ, YJ, Ford and GM and mesh them together. This is Street Queen Jeep build. Meaning, it will be tough enough to handle any off road adventure, however it will not be scraped over rocks. Will keep most recent photo here. Locating frame to begin welds asap. Budget is $15k. Donor YJ already found.

This will be a Church build for use with Youth outreach.

Anyone who wants to contribute to the recipe, I will gladly consider their input.
