I have decided to sell my Willys to fund a more street legal wheeling rig.
1951 Willys jeep truck, cab only. Steel half doors with square tube sliders
1980 Cherokee Chief/or what’s left of it. From the back of the cab back is all tube chassis
Front is sprung under with the original Cherokee chief leafs and creeper joints on the fame side of the shackle.
Rear is 4 linked with air bags. It flexes really well in the rear
Front is a Dana 44 with Chromo shafts, Rear is an AMC with 1 piece shafts. Both axles have 4.56 gears in them. Also have a PSC Steering assist ram to help in the front
Wheels are stock white trailer wheels 9” wide . Tires are mid wear set of 37 x 12.50” Super Swampers with no rock rash (yet
1989 4.3 V6 on propane w/ custom Headers, HEI distributor. Also has a ford Taurus fan for cooling. Radiator is from an ‘89 S10.
1989 700r4,231C both stock. I never got into a situation where I felt there was need to upgrade so I didn’t.
Has onboard air system to supply rear bags - 5ish gallon tank with a Viair oil-less compressor. Also has two 33# aluminum propane tanks. There is room for a Small marine cooler. The interior has suspension seats with 4 point harnesses. Shifting is through a B&M shifter. Occupants are protected via a 6 point 1.75” DOM cage. Belly height is about 20” and the rig has a very low center of gravity. I’ve laid it on its side only once in 5 years of tough wheeling. Skid pan is a complete pan that covers the oil pan back to the T-case.
This has been my first and only rig for going on 5 years now. It’s wheeled the likes of: K1, K2, Tree, Post, Canadian river, Moab twice, and Devils playground. Where it lacks in some of the main stream upgrades ( i.e. 40’s and tons) it makes up for in style and weight.
Asking $5000 OBO
Located in Cedar Park, Tx
Open to trades for a Yj, Cj7 or Scout.
PM me for a contact number – thanks JR
Here is a picture way back when it had military tires on it. This was the only good pic of the front I had.
