    Default 64 jeep gladiator with tornado engine



    I really like this...perfect run-a-bout truck. The OHC 6cyl 'tornado' engine was ahead of its time when designed, but also had some oiling issues and got a bit of a reputation and not the most durable, but its actually pretty good engine if you keep up with maintenance. Not a powerhouse for a full-size truck, (v8s quickly became the standard option for most buyers), and I'd assume the 3speed trans is a T90 (not sure if the tornado ever came mated to the HD T98 4speed or not. Anyway, its not a heavy duty work truck - just an awesome run around truck....Jen said no....

    So, you need to find out WHY she said no. Perhaps it's because the garage is already filled with a project. If that project were complete, running, and in the driveway - the garage might be ready for "next"!

    What's Jen's cell phone number?
