As everyone knows Dave aka..Fingers left his pride and joy (jeep) to his other pride and joy Destiny aka..Lil Finger. Well today Scrappy and Reeseman went to pick it up and start the work it needs... more than thought. Reese is donating his time to put it together but it will need parts and money. Dee and Destiny does not have that kind of money. Do you think we can find some way to help out one of our dearest friend family a hand? If anyone has jeep parts in good shape they think would help please get ahold of Reese. I would not ask but Dave was one of my best friend and I would do anything to help his daughter see her dad dream of her driving his jeep in the trails.
Any suggestions would be nice.[cheers]

I would also like to put out the fact that everything that is being done to red, I am well aware of. I am behind reese 100 % of the things he's doing. And I'd say that if Im okay with it, dad would be too. go fuck yourself

scrappy
07-17-2013, 11:55 PM
The work being done is stuff that he wanted done and I'm sure he would be very comfortable and appreciative of it a to make sure it is safe.

I'm cutting up one of my cruisers the spring mounts would work

Happypants
07-22-2013, 02:31 PM
I'm leaning more toward cj7, it's almost identical to my cj but it's longer, and has bigger doors on it, which look like yj doors,

That crack is only a small part of the issues with the frame
Better to start with another frame that hasn't already had cracks welded and plated

lil'finger
07-30-2013, 12:18 PM
The cracks are huge, we would have to grind it all down, and reweld everything, a new frame is better, and safer.

it would be a 1310 cv double cardian, or carnigan at the t-case, couldn't u just use a xj front shaft and cut it to length?

Reeseman

No it is not a CV!

Reeseman
