    Default to buy or not to buy

    I have a chance to buy a basket case CJ that guy was going to put on a YJ frame. I can't remember the years right off. But he has most of the 2 Jeeps all minus CJ chassis and drive train. But is willing to give me all of the parts that he does have all for $2000. My question is how easily will the CJ mate to a YJ frame. And what do y'all think of the deal. I appreciate any info that some more experienced Jeepers may have.

    Unless you're into a lot of work and chasing down bugs, I'd pass. Especially since you're going to be chasing down parts too. There are better deals out there.

    Yes, it's doable. YJ tubs swapped onto CJ's is done a lot. But as mentioned, there's a lot of messing around making it all fit. For that kind of money, you should be able to find a running/almost running project rig, that's mostly together.

    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
