  • Glass Body

    I found a glass tub (not sure of the brand name), 6 point cage, and frame at a local Jeep scrap yard. The cage has mounts welded to the frame with the bolt-on to mount the tub.

    What I am not sure about is what else am I going to have to purchase to make this work?

    These parts are being sold together because they were a set before. I am not sure about body mounts, brake pedal, clutch pedal, dash, firewall, etc, etc, etc. The guy wants $1000 for the whole thing but I would not want to spend another $1000 just to make it work.

    Isn't that why we all buy jeeps! Their fun money pits. I wouldn't want anything else. Sounds like you want something for cheap and not spend money. I don't think you can have your cake and eat it to. That's a stupid quote.

      I don't mind spending the money but I would like to know what issues I am going to have in advance so I can plan for it. I already know that I need to buy fenders and the dash but what else is going to come up.

      If I was worried about the money I would have bought a CJ that was already rebuilt! I bought this as a project to work on this summer.

      Thanks for your input but I'm looking for useful advice.

        Is that all your getting? (frame tub rollcage)

        If you need everything else it's way too much.
        You'll need another parts jeep and some major time.

        If you need a frame and tub for a preexsistig Jeep then thats OK

        I normally find and get them running for less then 1500
        Then the black hole appears and theres no turning back.

          Sorry. I have a 78 CJ5, 304, 3speed, 4 inch lift, Moper one piece axles, new lower steering shaft, new top, etc, etc. I bought this a couple of months ago and the body is shot. I just don't know what it will take to move all this to the other frame and body. I also wanted to drive this for a while and make sure that everything is mechanically sound before worrying about the looks.

            Buy it if your ready and the tub is OK (no cracks)It shouldnt cost you much $ if you do the swap

            Im waiting until I destroy the old body and no longer have the desire to crash it into things.

            But that day may never come
