Thanks a bunch all! It is FOR SALE, $12k, take it home, may throw in wired new helmets, used firesuits, nomex gloves and baclavas, needs a few minor things, a couple holes in the floor patched, the wiring cleaned up, and a dipstick and fluid for the trans, and maybe some personalization on the dash/console.

Blah blah blah blah.

Skullver, just out of pure curiosity, how streetable is this rig? I'm sure it's far from legal, but would it be able to be driven around the neighborhood or to the gas station and back?

You know, it actually drives pretty good on the street, it does have a spooled rear end and 5.29 gears so it almost wants to pop wheelies, and chirps the tires good! A windshield, a charcoal canister for the fuel vapor on the cell, catalytic converter, hmmmmmm, now you got me to thinking.

Blah blah blah blah.

Heh glad I could help get you thinking Maybe you could add some of those things, say the charcoal can. Make it easily removable for weight / racing purposes. A cat might be pretty tough to make "easily" removable, but I'm sure there's a way out there to get it done.

interesting concept. I could even find a decently geared dana 44 and swap that out as well, easy enough to do. I would love to get on the freeway with this thing and get it up to 9, the art carr manual valve body tf-904 is a blast to drive.

Nice job on the roll cage!

The triangulation and a good fit on the notched tubing is the key to structural integrity.

Thanks guys. Well, not getting any hits on selling it, and it is taking up needed space, and I am upset about it being so neglected. I just don't have the time or money to take it out, nor really the help. So....seriously considering parting it out, really sad to think about but not sure what else to do, I can't wait around forever for it to sell. That being said, I would seriously consider trades, plus cash, down payment, monthly payments, whatever it takes for it to be taken out and enjoyed.

Blah blah blah blah.

Having ridden shotgun in a JS many times looks like a fun ride! Already was talking with a friend that if he was still here locally we'd go halves and pick this thing up. Good luck with the sale, it's a heck of a deal!
