rolled my jeep now what

It is coming on winter here in the great state of indiana. The jeep is still covered with a tarp and sitting in my driveway. I'm looking for ideas and pictures of what I should do with it. I have too much money in it to sell it. And I really love my family truckster. Any help or pictures would help. I'm leaning toward cutting the back half off and putting in a cage. what do you guys think.

or find an xj with a trashed drivetrain and start the body swap.

If you rig isn't too damaged you could try this. I like these pics and have wanted to see this mod in daylight for a long time.

Re: rolled my jeep now what

any one have pics of this being done? Are there any support steel in the pillars. I once did this to a bronco II and the C pillar had heavy gauge steel through them. Am I going to run into anything like that?

Heavy gauge steel on an XJ? Right... :lol:

Go nuts and add a MJ tail gate AND cut down bed too. With a lifting rear window into the bed. That would make it a XJMJcharo thing. To much maybe?

That's actually where mine's headed.



No plans to close it in though. I wanted to leave it open from the start; although I'll probably make a soft top of sorts to cover everything.
