Default Early thinking on a Colorado/Canyon project, need some help ...

First of all, this would be my first real project. I have a TJ and I have lifted it and done some minor tune ups and electrical, but that's really it.

I'm envisioning a colorado supercab, bobbed tail and tube/trail bed, solid front axle, possible engine upgrade, and sitting on at least 35" tires.

Man, where do I begin? Anyone know what axle it has in back? KNow anything about its factory locker? What transfer case is in it? Know of any solid axle swaps for the front? It is a solid ladder frame, right?

som many more questions, but any help on these to start is very helpful ...

Buy mine, it's already shorter, and it's waaaaaaay cheaper than a crew cab!

I saw yours in the for sale section. I need the cab space for kids.

Thanks for the link though.

I think that would be a sweet build up to do.

Thanks, it wasn't quite what I was looking for in the first one. I bet there is some good stuff on pirate, but haven't looked yet.
