Picked up a cherry M38 frame with a saginaw plate in the front for 125, and a dana 20 (less the input gear) for 75 from a guy just outside of town. Waiting on a set of front shackles to finish the leaf spring bolt on.
Gotta weld on all the body mounts, cut off the V6 motor mounts, if that's what they are.
Anybody know the strength of the Suzuki Samurai axles? They have a 3.73 gear ratio, which would be nice for the V8/T18 combo so i'm not at 3500 rpm rolling down the road at 35mph
