“Great condition with some modern additions for this classic Jeep.

Comes with the 3.2L Buick V6 odd-fire engine so has a great sound especially through short pipes.
Has typical drive train of T90 manual transmission with Warn Overdrive, and a Dana Spicer 18 two-speed transfer case.
Warn manual locking front hubs with chrome 15” wheels wearing 31″x10.50″ Firestone Destination M/T tires (near new). Jerry can and rear swing gate give this classic jeep a modern touch.
Reclining seats with Pyrotect lap belts and a roll bar make this a safe and comfy vehicle for everyday use.
Warn winch mounted on front
Comes with half doors, full doors, full soft top and bikini top. All in good condition.

Grab this flat fender version of the USA classic and make it your off-road weapon or keep the bikini top on and take it to the beach! It’s ready for anything.”

    This is a nice build, but since this is a comment section, my comment is:
    I wish guys who do replacement bodies would put the Gauges back into the stock location and configuration as it is the most aesthetically pleasing. (Just a personal pet peeve of mine)

    Mark: Yes, the 3B with the M-38-like tool indents were fairly common in bodies from the 60s-80s at least. It’s one way to identify the replacement bodies.

    Chuck: I have mixed feelings about this. Well thought out custom placement of gauges is fine on custom builds/new bodies don’t bother me, partly because the stock placement of gauges is harder for my old eyes to see. 🙂

    Dave,
    The only custom dash I’ve ever liked is a guy cut the entire dash and recessed only the top until the face of the dash was at about a 35* angle. You looked straight into the gauges.
    It was pretty awesome looking – it was one of those Fresno/Clovis big window Jeeps.
