Santa's tear-down/swap/build-up

4xSanta, my Dad, rolled his jeep last night 5 times end over end on Cleghorn totalling the jeep, running gear look fine though. The body was twisted and the engine was tired before the roll so now he can start off with a new body and do it right.

Some pics of when it he bought it from the bigtex guy in Texas:

Re: Santa's tear-down/swap/build-up

So I think that at this point the plan is to swap all the goodies over to a new body (blue 4 door) with a healthy engine and go from there. We will see what happens.

Re: Santa's tear-down/swap/build-up

RIP "Sleigh #1"....here comes Sleigh #2. It seemed like the roll cage looked OK after the roll. Is it salvagable or did it get tweaked?

Re: Santa's tear-down/swap/build-up

Like I said in the other thread, If I am available and its not insanely far away, Id love to pitch in and lend a hand to getting a new rig built for Santa. So keep us updated, I can always haul parts up from San Diego as well if you need anything from this neck of the woods.

It was "OK", but it showed signs of stress in several critical places. Given the option, a new cage would be better; but I would not hesitate to run that cage before no cage..

I think santa needs to build a new cage and sell me his old for a 12 pack.

Re: Santa's tear-down/swap/build-up

I think that it will be easier to tell how the cage held up after the roof is cut off.

I don't think that it would be too difficult to cut the top part off the cage then build a new bottom half that would attatch to the top half with i.d. sleeves. About an inch or so of headroom could be recovered as well. because it can be almost touching the roof.

Re: Santa's tear-down/swap/build-up

There are stress marks at the A pillars and D? (rearmost legs), the paint is cracked and distorted. I'd still trust it in a heartbeat, but given circumstance Santa might want more reassurance than that.
