Here's an easy CJ-5 mod that needs no dremmeling.

You will need 3 parts from a MZM truck. And Swampers ;)

Awsome work ! That really does look sweet !.
Especially with the driver , it gives a whole sense of scaleness and realness :cool: .

Can you buy these with MZM clips fitted seperate ?

Looks fantastic! I thought the MZM CJ was much too wide for the OL chassis, but I guess I was wrong :D

I see the ball hitch on the back, does this mean you have a mini-z boat?

That's some great work and thought process! Definitely motivate me to run that body on my overland.

Thats Sweet. I wanna get a jeep body for my OL when i get it. How hard is it to fit it?

Thx,
You need shock towers front and rear from a MZM and the MZM front arm which will extend the front steering unit a bit further when the longer arm is mounted. This action is important for the front shocks to work smooth and better clearance for the front tires to turn completely left to right.

When its all done its like production. Nothing binds at all.

cool thanks for the help. it looks better on the OL than on the MZM.
