My 84 Jimmy chassis is solid. No rust. Rails are straight. Good motor and tranny. Front and rear 10 bolts are holding up about as well as could be expected after 25xxxx miles(rear is losing pinion seal, though). Well, I've shifting my attention to the rust issue now. I'm sure most of you here are familiar with this one, particularly in the rear area and crossmember that holds the tailgate hinges. Well, it was either fix all rust(most likely impossible), or purchase a lesser rusted or maybe even rust free CUCV from government surplus and swap bodies. Well, a new idea hit me. How about if I swapped on a third gen body on my second gen chassis? (newer body style 92-? or so) I figure after relocating the body mounts, fabbing up custom steering linkage (Flaming River, Borgeson) would be the hardes parts. Since I have a 6.2 diesel, wiring would be a snap. The only tough part would be the gauges, but aftermarket gauges would take care of that if need be. What do you think? Pro and con, I want to hear it all! I'd have the best of both worlds: solid front and rear axles on the most desirable chassis with a solid, simplistic drivetrain, and I'd gain things like power mirrors, power seats, rear wiper, better rustproofing, better structural rigity, better sound deadening, plus I'd have one of the most unique vehicles around. I could part out my 84 body/interior to help recoup costs plus part out the donor vehicle's chassis if possible. What are ya'll's thoughts? Like I stated in the title, I'm only toying with the idea right now. It never cost anything to dream.
