Well it looked like it had a good body. I would find one that was rolled and have at it.

I'm forever grateful to Speedycat and RnEmOvr for their generosity

well guys i got stuck on a tug boat for a couple months and haven't gotten any real work done on this project. but did do some thinking, i was planning on 38-42s but have decided to stay narrow track and run 34-35s that way i can still run the trails my buds do and have fun.
however i may still go ahead and put a chevy 350 in it as i already have one

so new plans are:
35s, full cage, race seats,4-6" of lift, axles will remain as 29 spline 825 an a hpd30, but will be upgraded at a later date(already have a 14bolt and a d60), also everything is being braced and then paint it some god awful bright color

hopefully i'll have it complete by the spring

If I were doing the build I'd keep it closer to the 4" of lift instead of the 6" of lift so as to keep the COG lower. With 4.5" of lift and some trimming you'd be able to go with 35's and it'll work well.

Would it be a long arm up front? If you're going to be at 6" of lift, then that's something you may want to consider as well.

Good luck with the project, it definately looks like it'll turn out awesome!
