“I’m currently working on a hand built rock buggy that started life as a 1946 Willys flatfender Jeep. I’m still working on it when time allows but I’m willing to let it go if someone wants to make a decent offer. This project is still a long way from being finished but the chassis is fully welded, suspension is complete minus shock mounts, drivetrain is positioned, engine accessories in place, radiator mount half finished, etc. A lot of tube work, body work, all the small details, and finishing work are still needed. You could say it’s basically a good rolling chassis.

100% of the work up to this point has been done by me over the last several years. The frame is 2x4x0.125 box tubing and the round tube is mostly 1.5×0.120 DOM. The 2” roll cage tubing is HREW I believe. Motor mounts, radiator mounts, most of the suspension link mounts are hand made since I didn’t want to compromise with pre-fab stuff.

“Custom built Willys MB rockcrawler. The motor is from a 2000 VW Beetle, it’s the 1.9 ALH TDI diesel motor and it’s mated to a Jeep T176 4 speed transmission. Transfer case is a twin sticked Dana 300, with 4:1, doubled to an NP231. Rear axle is a Ford 9″ with ARB airlocker and 4.10 gears, front is a Ford Dana 44 with an ARB air locker and 4.10 gears. The chassis is custom built, the suspension is true double triangulated 4 link both front and rear. Fox air shocks at all 4 corners, 10″ travel in the front and 14″ travel in the rear. Steering is PSC full hydraulic, column is adjustable and the steering wheel is removable. The seats are also from the 2000 Beetle and are leather and heated with full 5 point racing harnesses. There are two fuel cells to prevent any air getting into the fuel system and starving the motor. Tires are 36″ Super Swamper TSLs. The pedals and master cylinders are all Wilwood. The roll cage is 1.75″ DOM and is mounted to the frame for safety and strength. I did utilize the VW gauge cluster and all gauges work. This rig has performed perfectly I’m just getting out of the sport to pursue other interests. Feel free to email me with any questions.”

” This is an Arizona titled (clean and clear) 1949 Willys Pickup built on a stretched 1997 Jeep Wrangler frame with a three-link front, 4-link rear, one-ton axles, manual transmission, 505 cubic inch Dodge/Chrysler RB Big Block engine. There are many many details that went into this build and I will try to list them here, but may miss some or forget some. Any really interested parties need to come see this truck first hand and ask questions. I reserve the right to cancel the auction any time in case of local sale, or if I decide to keep the truck. The truck drives great on-road and is extremely capable off-road. It has plenty of power, and turns heads everywhere it goes. Everyone loves it from Rednecks, to Hippies, and everyone in between.

Built as a Jp Magazine project Vehicle there are 8 or 9 3-4 page articles on the build. To see them Google: “Jp Magazine Wicked Willys”
You can also Google “Wicked Willys Ultimate Adventure” for more info on the truck and the UA trip

The truck, since I finished it in june of last year, has been on Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road Ultimate Adventure for 2016 (that included about 2000 miles of on road and trail driving) Over the Rubicon, Isham trail near Trona, CA, and part of Fordyce. Its also been on a few trails in AZ and all over Moab during Easter Jeep Safari 2017. It drives over almost anything the driver aims it at and is very stable off-road. I’d love to keep it, but I like to build 4x4s and can’t keep them all.
