    use stock springs and why do you need 14.5 tires? way to wide IMHO if your rock crawling. i'd cut everything off except the front if you want to make it a buggy type deal. weight can sometimes be your enemy and the 60's got a lot of it.

    well all those parts I have and got most out of the junk yard or swapped so there just settin there, and I guess I like the looks of wider tires... I shoulda said I want to keep it mostly there body wise and remove it one rock at a time ;p plus I need room for Mama and the 2 boys.. so more truggy than buggy thats why I movin away from the 40.... but I think door less and bobbed even with the top (till I can afford a cage) will be faily light

    remove most of the body and just have a few seats in a homemade tub.

    Start the project with a frame and engine.

    I wondered if someone on here would buy that rig. I would maybe finish what he started with the bed along with bobbing it. Internal roll cage with 1/2 doors front and back. Quicky paint job in a color easily touched up with a rattle can. I like the 60 body lines too much too chop one up into a total skeleton.

    Cool!
