I've already read how the windshields on the FC 170's are hard to find or costly if found, but if I could work around that- could this be made into an off-road, on-road vehicle? OR should I keep my cj5 and not even consider selling or trading it?

An FC could probably be made into an offroad capable rig, but I would't do it, I'd make it a sweet restore and on road vehichle, maybe repower it as a tow rig.

it could be cool to have, but I don't know about it being a trail rig. I agree with Kennedy and buy it for a tow rig. Give us a link and/or info for it. Somebody (me) might want it on here. :D

it was in the for sale section. Blue found a craigslist ad and posted it there. The guy asked for pics for my jeep...cause i thought I would at least toss the idea of a trade out there...but then i changed my mind.
