Default Dodge frame.. jeep body? Maybe.

So I picked up a 95 Ram 2500 single cab, long bed with a 360 gasser engine. The frame, axle, drivetrain is all in fantastic shape, but the body is shot(the usual). Not sure what I want to do with it.. wanted some opinions.

1. Jeep body on the frame.. Shorten the frame, YJ body or maybe make a scrambler type jeep.. Something like that, or..

2. Put the engine/trans, axles, and whatever else into an XJ, YJ, TJ, etc.. or..

3. Shorten the ram to a short bed, custom long arms/bumpers/etc, replace rockers with tube, and make that some sort of offroad rig..

What do you guys think? Thinking low budget build here..
