All you need from the willys is the body then. BUILD A NEW FRAME! If you research on here you will find many builds, alot of them recent on how to properly build a willys for offroad. Good Luck!

I would use the oem frame. plate between the springs and put all your parts in it.

The pick up frame is narrow in front and wide in back unlike the wagon or any donor frame vehicle etc.

Theres absolutely nothing weak about the oem frame.

I think your dodge if thats your donor has the ps box on the outside of the frame if so that makes it even easier to install in a pick up or wagon.

making a chassis from scratch would be cool but money is short and the willys was free. today i stripped the frame of everything but the cab and it is jerry-rigged from hell so i guess the willys body is going on the dodge. hope its easy as it sounds haha
