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..
4. Cut the bed to a short box, run the front stock, bastard leafs rear/bumpers/etc, replace rockers with tube, and make that some sort of offroad rig..
