So this morning I decided to drive to the gym, I pull out the driveway and as I shift into 3rd I feel the rear right side kick. I pull over, thinking I had a flat, and this happened.
Now the average person would think some duct dape and guerilla glue would fix that right up, but me (the intelligent person i am), I know i'm pretty much ****ed. definitly not a good morning.
Obvoiusly, my frame is rusty as hell, and I expected something like this eventually, but I guess today is as good as any day for me to be **** out of luck. I backed down the road slowly, and pulled back into my driveway.
I am in need of a frame swap. (if you think otherwise please let me know)
1) what year frames can I use with the I6?
2) can i use frames from a 4 cylinder? because I would love to buy a donor jeep with a blown 4 and swap in axles with 4.10's(I have 3.07's)as well.
3) I'm really hoping my dad and I can do all of this, is that realistic?
I dont really know what else to say. What would you do in this situation? are there any upgrades that I should do while its apart? What would you do?
Basically, I'm heartbroken, I love my jeep, and any help/advice would be great. This is a great place, and im hoping it can help me do this. Thanks guys
Edit: the reason I figure the swap is worth it is because the body is clean and the engine is running strong(knock on wood) at 93,000.
