Anything worth parting on a 74 CJ5?

I have the opportunity to get a 74 CJ5 for dirt cheap. Is their anything on it that would be worth parting out? The tub is pretty much shot, and the soft top sucks, but other than that it looks to be in good shape. So should I pick it up? What parts would sell?

Probably sell some of the drivetrain stuff.. the rear D44 is a desirable swap into later Narrowtrac CJs..

Front 44? Not unless someone put one under there after it left the factory.

It's a narrow track D30.

The 11" brakes are desirable with the pre-72 crowd.

So it had a 30 in it from factory in 74? I thought it was a dual Dana 44 Jeep.

And the dash and steering, too.

Yeah, I'm thinking about keeping the drive train and making it a kick-*** buggy. The body is trash, but everything else looks cool.

No such beast.. unless a 44 is swapped in.

Please refer to post #4 and then Eddie's post #9 which says what #4 says.

Yeah, I was going to check this. Those things are worth some coin aren't they? I was checking in my CJ history book about 74 last night and they made it sound good.
