Chances are slim it gets to ohio but be on the look out My buddy's rig was stolen last night from his shop in Northeast TN, (near Rogersville). There is a $1000 reward if it's found. It's a dark blue YJ with an extremely beat tub and an orange cage. Has a 302, I think a C6, and 60/14 bolt. You won't meet a better dude than James. He doesn't deserve this shit. >:(

Good that he got it back, but they stole it for the cage and beat fenders? you would think that they would have gone after the running gear ant tires at least. That's where the money is.

I'd say it was in the process of being stripped when found.

He was planning a tub swap and big block swap so he's really only.out the cage at this point

why even swap a new tub, just do it all with tube and call it a day.

Too stay street legal

Tube buggies don't look as cool as a full body rig when completing crazy stuff

Not everyone wants a buggy

Oh I know, took almost 3 years to talk a buddy into pulling the bed on his frontier and caging the back. all because he wanted to keep the truck function of the bed. Ended up saving the bed, shortening the frame to the rear hangers, and cutting the rear bumper to the frame with.

I love the looks of a beat to death full body rig. But sometimes going all tube does make more sense.

Sometimes it's just about staying somewhat clean, warm, and dry too
