Due to the fact that I need to get my Jeep built and on the road A.S.A.P., I am scrapping the diesel idea. I know I could build the frame and suspension, and throw the engine in there later, I was thinking that the engine i have now, a Chevy 305, might just very well do the job just fine. I am not going crazy fast, not rock crawling, mostly trails through the forest and power line trails. I will change my tranny though, to a 4 speed, and I will need to rebuild the engine, and tranny, and re-seal the transfer case. I can find some decent driveshafts for cheap, and I will rebuild the axles, making sure they are durable. The inside will be spartan, but add ons inside will be a cinch to install. Paint, tires, and running all the lines and wires I can and will do in my garage, with the help of all of YOU, and various other sources.
