    Re: 58 Willys Wagon

    Time to build the front passenger seat mount....but of course, given my slightly compulsive nature for symmetry, I had to be absolutely certain the driver seat was how I wanted it. After getting the...

    Re: 58 Willys Wagon

    hey Jim....not sure if you are still looking and what price range you were thinking...but this could work if they are interested in wheeling. Or you can get rid of the body and shackle lift and run a...

    Re: Mod For The Day

    Based on 'commentary' on the colo trip last week when I had to use my winch, it apparently was time to change out my fraying and kinky winch cable. I actually have had an almost new spare 5/16" cable...

    Re: Out and about Colo

    Also, if you are in the halfmoon creek area (champion mill and mine), it's worth the side trip up 110.J to the iron mike mine. There is one chunky obstacle for sure...some built rigs coming down said...

    Re: Out and about Colo

    I think you'd be fine...but if it's wet (and it's been raining every day), you'll appreciate the extra 13inches of wheelbase, fully locked front and rear and larger 35s to get up the ledges.
