      Probably cut it, we're just doing some ruff cuts to see where we stand. We're talking of cutting off the quarter panels all together behind the b pillar. Just to much to repair.:( We'll had some sheet metal back after with the same lines that will attach to the cage later.

      On another note JP got a set of new seats today. We swap them out because the sports we're in better shape the JP's. We'll probably put suspension seat in both later

      You could always modify it to make the roof like a fullsize Bronco, that would be sweet.

      Some spy pics of what is going under her...;)

      and I need to know about the mysterious 3 boxes? I have only the center one in JP. But this sport has two others, the last one has some kind of RCA plug in with a antenna. :confused:

      Looks like that thing's been used and abused for years already, and the build's just beginning haha. I'm really looking forward to watching this build, can't wait to see how the TTB swap unfolds.

      We Thought so...and decided to do some body work?? :p:

      The front axle will get pushed forward, and in the end we will probably end up with a 4 door wheel base :scratch:

      Any updates? Also you must have a pretty cool Mom. I don't think I could get away with leaving something like that at my parents house.
