“Today I put my Willys MB project up for sale. It is a project but has quite a few sought after pieces if you are into rock crawling. I’ve had this since 2018 with the hopes of creating an off-road vehicle I could rock crawl, but still be street-able. As you can see, that hasn’t happened yet and while I’d love to get to it someday in the near future, I wanted to give someone else a shot at fixing this thing up right. I’d like to sell this as a complete project but for the right price, anything can be bought.

Pros
Roller
Willys MB tub, grill, fenders, hood
M38 windshield
Spicer 18 transfer case core(needs rebuilt)
Short width Dana 30 axle with factory disc brakes from a CJ5
Dana 27 front axle
COVETED 1971 only-flanged, offset Dana 44 out of a CJ5. It is stuffed with a Detroit locker and chromoly axles(have paperwork to verify)
Custom fully boxed steel frame with exact CJ3b, early CJ5s, Willys and GPW dimensions
Ford T18 4 speed w/granny low first gear(has advanced adapter bell housing to mate to any GM V6 or V8(not LS) as well as Dana 20 adapter for t-case also from advanced adapters)
Working off-brand winch
4 Aluminum American racing 15 inch wheels
Rancho lift springs w/confer shackles

Cons
Possible long term project
Some rust but really not too bad
CJ5 frame the tub is bolted to is a little to worn in my opinion-best to switch to the custom frame.
NEEDS BODY WORK-previous owner(s) did a number on the sheet metal and made some questionable choices when they “upgrade” components in the past leaving large holes in the tub floors

These things are a blast once you get them going and I would love to someday make it a reality so, I don’t mind keeping it if nobody wants it. Cash is most preferred and there may be a little wiggle room in the price but lowball offers WILL be ignored and not entertained. I do not have a vehicle or trailer to tow this so if purchased, you will have to make those arrangements. I also have a SM420 I can sell as well if interested. No I do not need your help selling. Scammers need not try. Email using this listing or you can call or text me at 760-519-fivethreesixtwo.

Possible trades;
Jeep Wrangler TJ
FJ80 Land cruiser
FJ100 Land cruiser
LX470
Land Rover Defender/Series
K5 blazer/GMC Jimmy
Camaro/Firebird
Challenger/Cuda
CJ7
K30 crew cab truck”
