Curious about possible body swap
I've been toying around with an idea lately and want to know if I'm crazy or if it could work. I was thinking that instead of doing a sas and an engine swap would it be easier/possible to just pick up a junkyard car and swap the xterra body onto the junkyard chassis and drive train.
I realize that this would require heavy fabwork but I know the ford broncos had a 104" wheelbase which seems close enough to the X. With the bronco you would have aftermarket support, a v8(if it would fit which isn't likely), and the rest of the drive train for the price of just doing an sas depending on what you buy. If you could pick the right donor vehicle with a little luck I feel like it would just be relocating body mounts and chopping up the frame and body in the right spots.
I was just curious if I'm crazy or what I figured someone would have some input.
