    Well I guess I can start a thread here since I actually started working on it. Plan is to build a decent trail rig out of the 6. So far I have 4" yj lift spring under it (spring under). I left the ubolts long because I wasn't sure what axles I was going to use. I've since decided to stick with the 44 in the rear and use a nt 30 I have in the basement up front. I'll probably use a ford 4 speed and keep the spicer tcase. I have been looking at tires today and think ive settled on 35x10.50x15 ssr's. As far as the engine im keeping the dauntless until it gives up the ghost then ill either rebuild it or maybe drop a sbf in. How it looked when I bought it
    Test fit with the half cab
    As it sets now.
    Of course any questions or critique are welcome :D

    Remember, the aluminum diamond plate uninsulated from the steel body will cause corrosion due to galvanic action.

    Yes, that stuff is coming off after I get the tires and see if and where I have any contact with the body. I had dreams of boatsiding it but I think thats more trouble than I want to fool with. I should be ordering the tires first of next week:clap:
