    Engine Swap

    I think that's worse than putting a ford engine into a chevy!!!! sell the jeep engines and buy the one you were looking at. or you can pick up a used 350 for around 500-1000 buckaroos.

    body work!! YA!

    you should be able to see the tack welds after you sand the corners down to metal, you may be able to see them from the underside looking back also. ccot has panels as well as some other venders.
