Default Project Phoenix or not to project phoenix


I wrecked my other jeep cherokee a few months back (it rolled 3 times) I had the wreckers deliver the vehicle back to me and it's sitting in my garage now I have a thought do I go to a wreckers and buy a chassis and strip down the wrecked jeep and rebuild it with new chassis (project Phoenix) or to buy another jeep cherokee and tranfer the lift kit ect to the other jeep. Iam a certified mechanic as well and have the tools at home to do a chassis swap. I don't know which to do. What are your thoughts as I have the whole vehicle.

Since this is a unibody vehicle, it might be better to have your own mini pull your part junkyard in your garage.

The photo was taken when it was still on the flatbed just before it was put on my garage.

It is still a unibody. There is no frame to take the rest of the truck off of.

This. There's no chassis to replace. Pick up a nice clean 2wd XJ for cheap and transfer everything over.

Didn't think there was much translation between England and U.S.A.

You would be surprised at the amount of different meanings words have between the two country's. Like my wife's ex called me a *** (in the uk a *** is a ciggerette) and I laughed at him.

There is lots of translation issues from England to USA. I did some work on a 53 Triumph TR-3A for a friend. They brought over the Haynes manual with it. I caught hell reading that book.
