Tj tj rolling chassis

need help locating a tj chassis. my wife's frame just snapped at the rear leaf. moved to hampton roads last year from New Hampshire where the salt from winter got the best of it. it's pretty well rusted out. the motor and trans run beautifully and want to carry on with a jeep. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check out Daveys Jeep. If you Google it they have a bunch of stuff. A lot of it is wrecked but I bet he has straight frames.

Good luck

well thought I might have lucked out the other day. Found a post on craigslist for a 97 wrangler with a blown motor for 900. there was an offer for 750 already and it was only up for an hour. I told her I would pay the 900 if the frame was good. it was pretty much the best condition I've seen in a while. as I wad calling her back to tell her I wanted it she told me someone was on there way to give her 950 from nc. so I got screwed. so I could still use some help because my luck is s*** lately.

Considering how cheap and easy a motor swap is and what a TJ goes for in VA I'd have thrown a few more hundred at her without thinking twice.

yea I told her I would and she said she had already made the agreement with the other guy. she took it as when I said i that I would pay the 900 that's all u was going to pay. he offered her over asking price so she accepted his offer on the spot.

Still looking everyday. If anyone has any leads hopefully within hampton roads it would be a great help. I need another vehicle for my family.

Well I put her up on craigslist today. As a whole or will part out. So in a few days I don't sell it while it will be open for parts. Unless miraculously I find a donor jeep with good frame and body within the next couple days. I'll keep you updated.
