Toyota power steering, cross over to Sky Manufacturing High steer arms, one ton tie rod ends. 35 12.5 15 BFG KM tires with 32 bolt beadlocks. It weighs 3040 lbs wet. 10 gallon fuel tank with a screw in cap, no leaking, like most old Jeeps. 1941 Ca license Plate The front and rear seats are covered in top material that has a 10 year guarantee in the sun. It has onboard air! Seats 4 grown ups.
It does the Rubicon with ease as well as Foredice creek. It did the Pipe Jam trail In less than an hour. With 5.29 diff. gears and 35 inch tires it is geared just like a stock Toyota Pickup. it is a little too soft to drive on the street at speed. Add one more leaf to each side of the the rear suspension and it is a great hwy runner. I have the extra leafs

It’s a project.
“Here is a heavily modified old willys. Just about everything on it has been upgraded. Obviouslt the whole rear has been replaced with a tubular cage. I made it to offer great rollover strength but still mimic the classic body lines of the original willys, hence the curved door openings and the opening to fit the original willys tailgate.. The suspension uses Wider YJ leaf springs all around. reverse shackles up front and a 3/4 elliptical system in the rear, which allows for major flex. The old screw type steering was replaced with a heavy duty Saginaw box and beefed up custom linkage all over. All 4 wheels have been converted to disc brakes with stainless lines. the drivetrain however I kept stock, first, because of the nostalgia factor of keeping it willys, Second, because it has proven itself. Back when this was a normal jeep I could plow tons of snow and not slow it down at all or drive down the freeway at a fair speed. I have not started he engine in a few years but I’m sure it will crank over.
As I said, this is a project so it needs finished. Off the top of my head, it needs driveshafts put in, sheetmetal installed as the floor and sides (optional) brake lines run, pedals installed, amongst a few other things.
I am losing out big time asking what I am for it, but we all know you never get what you put into them. I just need to clear out some projects. You can call or text me at 4 four O-31 nine- O 47 O”

“1952 Willys Jeep. M38 body stretched 10 in. with an MB grill
This jeep was hand built using an International scout frame
shortened to a 97 inch wheel base. The Scout frame is a very sturdy boxed frame. The body is an M38 body (new steel after market 100% rust free) stretched 10 inches in the door ways to match the wheel base. We installed a carbureted Ford 302 ci. engine because it is light weight and quick to rev. We backed the engine with a heavy duty clutch and a smooth shifting T-5 transmission with a 300 transfer case. Dana 44 Axles with disk brakes front and rear, 427 gears in rear ends and Richmond spools front & rear. Also there are polished stainless steel covers on both rear ends. We installed custom made Twin sticks ( in & out of 4 wheel drive, and high & low gears ) for specialized off roading. There is High clearance leaf spring brackets for easier access over obstacles. Revolver shackles (front) to aid in articulation. Full role cage tied to frame, and heavy duty nerf bars to protect the body sides.
Corbeau racing seats with 5 point racing harness.
Ramsey 12,000 lb. winch (new never used)
Mickey Thompson aluminum bead locks with Superswamper TSL 33in. tires on the rear. (also have a set for the front at an additional cost if wanted)
Buckshot’s on aluminum slots in front.
Custom made bumpers front & rear
Aluminum gas tank with ¼ in. diamond plate skid plate
Bikini top and a new matching 2 A wind shield needs glass
Has blackout marker lights and the dash switch
The color is PT Cruiser Gold with hammered silver floors
