75 extra cab project?

have a chance to get a extra cab minus the 360 for free. i have a very capable vehicle now, my cj-5. its well set-up, but everytime i see a fullsize on 44s, i say i just got to build one. i could sell the jeep for around $5000, that could finance the dana 60s(or rockwells), a motor and some 44s. lift is easy. maybe even a doubler if i can find some used 44s. i would like to have a truck to haul stuff and the jeep is useless except for wheelin, even then its benifit is only the really tight spots(thats what rocker guards and diamond plate is for). so the plan for the FULLSIZE would be a 360/435/203-205, dana 60/70, 44"tsl's, bobbed bed, 6"front springs, late model leafs moved under the frame, cage, and primer black and some serious fender mods(18v milwaukee sawzall with 2 batteries for continous cutting). what do you guys think? i just don't want to sell the jeep and regret it.

sounds good but I would use a 440 but then I have two of them in the garage. I would like to do the same thing but I want a crewcab.

I got one a those SOunds bitchin dude, but why sell the Jeep? If the truck is free, get a motor, get it goin, and have both. Tow rig and trial rig. Then take your time building the Dodge to be that badass.

just went and looked at it today, its missing more than a motor. no glass, interior, motor or pink slip. sounds like a whole bunch more than its worth, plus the guys not giving it away. wants to trade a bunch of parts i have for it.
