It was destined for the crusher. I couldn't get it all. There is another one sitting there too.

What engine is that? Kind of looks like a Benz but I can't see it well enough.

Get. The. Doors. Those are probably the hardest to find pieces and the most valuable. What are your plans for it? Definitely a unique rig, I'd love to see a build thread.

They have the Nissan 33D, 6cyl diesel. Same one used in the scouts except non-turbo. The frame is from a full size jeep so in going to swap the engine into my 81 Cherokee.

The doors were mangled. They are just late model CJ doors.

...coming from a ZJ owner...Not true at all. The doors have an angled upper corner, not rounded, so only fit either the CJ10 tugs or Overlander cabs or CJ8 postals. Even if you just got the uppers, someone would pay you for them in the hopes that they could weld up a set from CJ7/8 doors and use them for either a postal or Overlander.

You can see the cornered edge on Eric's Overlander here:



You're welcome. If you need to find someone who wants them, let me know and I can post up on the CJ8 forum.

Easy there bud, I own a lot more than a "ZJ". The top is not there anymore, so yes the tub is the same around the doors as a CJ. Also, the top of the door is the same dimensions as a factory YJ soft upper (at least in 87', but yeah I'm just a ZJ owner) Anyway like I said the doors were mangled beyond use. The top was too but I was able to save the bottom were it bolts down, I'll use it to fabricate a soft top.

Did it have the 60/40 bench seat? I have been looking for one of those for my cj5. Trying to find out if it would be the same measurement

It does yeah. I'm in Texas for training right now but when I get back in late May I'll get some measurements for you. Just remind me around the 3rd week May.

That seat does fit in the CJ5s and CJ7s without modification.
