Rat Rig Pics

i know this isnt tech and i didnt want to post it in the hardcore section. I would like to see pics of jeeps with nasty beat up rusted out bodies but, with a built up drivetrain.

Im not asking questions here and im not looking for advice. i just want to see some pics.

im building a CJ5 with a rusted, bondo beast body and im not gonna do anything to make it look nicer. it's even got a license plate patching up a floor board. i wheeled my nice cj and put a big dent in the rear and bout threw up. i wheeled this one, puts dents in it and laughed it off.

SO, if this has been covered before sorry, but a red star is out of my price range right now. so, let's see what you got.

FYI - If you build up a drivetrain with a rusted out frame - your asking for trouble

Yours doesn't look bad at all though... Nice lookin CJ.

Yeah, ssr's suck in the mud. i got a good deal on 'em so thats what i ran.

the body on the cj5 is pretty nasty but the frame is in good shape and is a good platform to build on. im sure there are guys here that will argue that you should build your own frame too. That big dent on my cj7 was a killer. It "HAD" a rust free, dent free body and i goofed that up. sold it so i could beat up on a junker.

i dont know if i could build up a old willy's other than stock. maybe lockers or a solex carb. i would've wheeled my cj3a with 7.00 x 16 NDT's if i hadnt sold it first.

They're not bad on the rocks. here in illinois its mostly mud and slick hillclimbs. so, i couldnt tell you how they do somewhere else. they are good on the road for a swamper.

I can imagine how you felt, I remember when you bought that thing. It was cherry.

First time over to the badlands after I spent 3 months replacing 60% of my sheet metal resulted in this.

Now I dont care.

Badlands has some spots that are not sheet-metal friendly. The rear corners and rocker panels seem to suffer the most hits.

re:SSR sidewalls... not very good. No worse than the generic off-brand MT's out there; but definitely not swamper-toughness when it comes to sidewalls. The tread tends to chunk on them as well depending on the terrain you wheel.

I'm slowly getting mine built up. Still have the 30 up front and the 20 in the rear, with that lock rite and 1 piece shafts. Ive got a 360 that should be going in this winter, hopefully. We just bought a house again so I am short on cash to do anything for a while. Good thing is that I have enough room to build my shop. I've started designing bumpers, sliders and stuff to sell on the side.

Anyway here is our newest addition, I got this for jen because it has an automatic in it. It looks ok but the previous owner riveted thin metal to the floor and then filled it with a thick layer of bondo. This is the first project I have for this winter is fixing all of that.

I've gone through about everything but the body...clearcoat is peeling, rust bubbling out, etc. My winter project will be plating the rear corners and throwing on a cheap paint job....
