Thanks for thinking of me @airon23 but I am not interested in another full blown project, and that thing would likely be more involved than my current one!
The plan is to finish the 40 (well get her road/trail worthy), then get an 80 and do all the maintenance and upgrades on the suspension, steering, drivetrain, and do the engine swap. Once that it done I'll buy a very nice, rust free 55, unbolt the body from it and the 80, section the 80 frame and slap the 55 on top of it. If I do a Cummins R2.8, then it will be a CRJ135 (Cummins Repower, J body, 80+50=135) or if I go the cheaper route, then it will be an LSJ135. Kelly is torn between calling it Wilbur (Charlotte's Web) or Sooie.
I suspect IF it happens, it won't be for several years.
