Still planning to use the TJ frame you got from me?

I've got a set of Speedway DIY header parts for an LS motor if you want it. Flanges, various 1.75" mandrel bent primary pieces, collectors. I bought it off Bryce 3 or 4 years ago and never used it.

Maybe send me a PM with what all you have in the header pieces.

Its on the TJ frame right now, but I am not 100% sure. That frame ended up being in pretty bad shape, the rails are all rotten through the whole middle, on the insides. I have cut and welded in extra metal to stretch the wheelbase on it to 101" to match the Jeep, just not sure how much metal I need to cut out and replace, and if its worth it.

The other thing with the TJ frame, is what look am I going with. The 60" wide axles put the tires out further than I'd like. So I am reconsidering using the stock frame or building one, so that I can get the tires more tucked under the body, like the dark blue one I posted.

I need to get my XJ sold, and then I will start mocking up wheels for ride height and axle width/wheel tuck.
