I've seen one on an 83 K5 Blazer frame. Fit nicely. This one was only (and i'm not kidding) ratchet strapped on but could be welded and would suggest it. With this kind of customization it doesnt really matter, there will be ALOT of custom metal work.

I suppose it could be done but it would need an awful lot of cutting, patching and welding to make the two fit together but as they say, nothing's impossible! Would be interested to see what it would look like :)

the CJ 7 is the closets fit for wheel base. I measured one from center of front axle to center of rear. they are within an inch or two difference. from human eye probably wont tell. I would recommend a 4 cyl jeep motor for smaller size but an eight would fit as well. also the full suspension on the CJ frame is all connected to the frame and not body. as far as dash and lights, dash on older CJ is flat with round speedo like the beetles. as well as the headlights. I would recommend a 70"s beetle body, they are wider and a bit more room. but in the end with modifications its not impossible.
