Default CJ-10a #2...what to do?

Well, a combination of me being bored tonight, having a tendency to get ahead of myself with Jeep projects, and owning a 2nd CJ-10a has led me to post this poll. What do you think I should do with tug #2. Poll options to be posted in just a few minutes...

Get creative, and let me know what you think...

Craig

My current '10a conversion (build thread & specs HERE):


Tug #2 still in stock form:

I lost out on a '50s Willy's trailer (eBay) that was made into a trailer, and was located here in Michigan. I think that would be a great look for the other tug, as well.

Here's a nice execution of an extended frame pick-up (using a reworked Chevy stepside bed). It belongs to Scumby on ifsja.org.

Another pickup (Wagoneer frame/axles & homemade bed):


Military pick-up prototype:


Chris Durham's CJ-10a conversion (one of many iterations):


Another Chris Durham iteration of the same vehicle:

That looks better if you ask me but to each their own.

Do that with the diesel/lwb/one tons as a tow rig

The appearance of the elusive stepside Gladiator shortbed is extremely similar to that bed. I used to have one.

Welcome to the site, Joel. Angie already has a CJ in the works...no need for another.

don't get me wrong, I love 34x9.5s, but that cab is similar to a M715, even on big-ish tires, they look small. That on 38.5s would be sweet.

I would finish the first one, and restore the second one. i am all for modifying a vehicle, but sometimes its good to keep her stock. one of the reasons i dont like musclecars like i used to is every douche bag with a shop is making old 6 cylinder cars into "SS' or "rs" clones. just my .02 cents

Just my .02... my rig is far from perfect too :tonka:


At least you don't have to pay Adam in jeep parts to hold your fuel tank in place while you tear around the neighborhood.

I think you should do the pickup thing and keep the original diesel driveline.
