Subscribed! Maybe it'll give me inspiration to get started on my Willys.

That thing would be cool with a stinky Cummins 4BT.

I originally thought it would be nice to find a wrecked sprinter van, and just snag the whole driveline out of it.

I'm not really into making this thing a powerhouse, as that will force rear axle replacement, and I really just want to ride around.

I do have a buddy with an old Power Wagon that has a slick mitsubishi t/d in it.

We're sticking with the 6 on this job, and only the 250, cause I found it for cheap connected to the right trans I wanted, yes, the one w/o a syncro in first, just like original. I'm sticking with the column shift - more room up front for my Lady.



Besides with a gasser and no cat, I can put one of these on it!

Love your build, those things look really good once you get your 4wd conversion done a few years down the road...

Very cool! This is exactly the type of vehicle that makes for the perfect rat rod. No need for absolutely perfect pannels, or high dollar motors, just super cool looking and basic!

You and I don't always agree, but today - you're spot on. This truck had one foot in the grave, and anything I do to make it go down the road will be helping it live a little longer. It's too shitty for a nice resto - if that is what you want to do, you're better off starting with a western rig.

But for a fun rig to drive around in - I'm gonna do some home-brew fix up, and "use it up".......
