This here is a sweet lil halfbreed that me and my ol jeep buddies stumbled across out in the wild swampland of east Texas about 6-8 years ago.. I paid a whoppin $200 bucks for it.. Then we Had to drag it out of some trees and mud with 4 flats and with nothin more than a stick and empty beer cans to fight off the gators and snakes..
When we got it home we fixed it up good enough to take it on a few midnight mud runs out on the pipeline then it got parked and once again got grown over with trees,grass, skeeters and snakes..
Well.. Last weekend I drug it up on my trailer and hauled the ol rust bucket to my house to nurse it back to health so me and Kassi can use it for our huntin rig.. I got some plans for it like pullin the body off and reworking the chasis.. But for now im just gonna get it running smooth and maybe put some new springs on it.. She wants brakes but I told her brakes are for sissies...

It's a 50's model willys with the original drivetrain (f-head) and a 50's-60's mail carrier body... Which means it is 4x4 with steering on the left side Wink

Thanks..
It was so funny because once I got it to my trailer with the tractor I was lookin at what I needed to get it runnin.. Coil, battery , condenser.. Things like that .. SHE was askin about seat covers and shifter knobs ..
I can't wait till I get the turret style trap door built so she can stand up in the back and shoot her .270 over the roof! Twisted Evil
