Why don't you just try to hold the doors closed with a ratchet strap or something like that? I think you should keep it as it is and just make it a wheeler only, and get a new DD.

OP: I ran across this on the Columbia SC craigslist today. It shouldn't be but about 150 miles or so from Conway. Here's a link to it. Not a bad buy for $800.

It's a Jeep thing... You wouldn't understand!

I bought a 2005 tub for $550. All the 97 tubs I saw were so rusty I passed. I swapped it out last weekend. Selling my old beat up tub for 200 bucks. Totally worth it.

That's awesome! Good job. Got any pics of new jeep? How about a build thread of new jeep?

Edits: sorry I thought you were the OP. That's what I get for using my phone.

But you might have a build thread? Lol

If you're still looking on craigslist for parts, perhaps this website will make your life easier. It searches multiple CL all at once.

Hey guys got a quick update, I ended up riding her out thro the winter and once i got some money together picking up another jeep (for a steal i might add lol) and sold my first jeep . But I ended up getting my new baby that has D44 front and D44 in the Back out of a 05 rubi and a 4.0 from a 2000. Could not be more happy this thing trumps the old rig but i do miss her. (only prob is i can't get it to stay in 4 Low? ) I gone adjust the linkage soon and see if that works

Oh and the guy i sold her too had a buddy with a frame shop and straighten the body with the stretcher as a favor haha So Yes This kind of body work can be fixed !!!! lol

Thanks for the interest guys
