Started on my new build the first of this year and just wanted to share with you guys.

This build was initially going to be a JK trail rig with a narrowed body but once I got the tub in the shop, it seemed easier to just cut the outer skins off and build a new chassis to fit them.

I ended up not liking the look of the 4 door so I welded up the opening and replaced the rear buckets with a bench seat. This made it look sort of like a CJ6.....hence the name "JK6".

Nothing groundbreaking, over the top or high zoot about this project, just a simple trail rig with tried and true parts. Although there is some go fast parts in it.

LS1
TH350
Atlas w/ 4 speed Strong Box
HP 60 front
14 Bolt rear
Fox Coilovers and Bypass shocks
20" Trail Ready wheels
43" SX Stickies
Corbeau seats
Warn Zeon winch
etc...etc....

Started with this:

Y’all do some awesome builds. I got to ride with a buggy you all built for awhile. I always said if I another built I would try to afford you all. Put thoughts into the maint and upkeep as well as quality built. I like it thumb.gif

Progress from red to white went well ;D
Nice!
Yeah looks like about 8 inches under the doors is original. I guess that's the only thing worth keeping on a jeep. :rolf:

First reading this hoping for a JK version of Gin & Juice...

This thing turned into a badass buggy though... Really love the 20s. Will make stepping to bigger tires easy.

The buggy looks very thought out and stupidly capable. On a side note, I really like how you did the interior walls of your shop, which I will be copying for my garage in the new house.

Going to be a killer looking machine as usual I have no doubt. Keep the build pics coming.

Bad ass build. At what point do you even need the jeep. For the logo? But seriously. Very nice!

I know, right? In the end, the only thing left from the Jeep was the outer sheet metal skins. You can probably buy those pieces separately. Had I known this was the direction I was headed, I would have done just that and not wasted money on the 4 door tub. Hell, the logo on the rear was cut out of an old CJ tailgate that was rusting away in a field. Oh, and there's only 2" below the door openings left.... laughing1

Exactly how the manche ended up. Nothing but exterior sheetmetal... and very little of that, used in the end.
