    LarrBeard is right on the money. The basic block and head are the same as in a CJ, but the accessories are the difference. Fording kits were installed meaning everything that pulled outside air in,...

    A 3B door will be taller, but the width may still come up a little short. A door from an early CJ5 would be spot on for the dimensions, but then you would have to recover it with the O.D. canvas. ...

    As usual, or unusual as it may be.... The two basic rules of Willys apply here. You'll never know what exactly your Jeep was born with or not.

    Clint Eastwood's Heartbreak Ridge was the only movie I can think of that touched on Grenada. Another bit of trivial trivia.

    It might have been a lack of sleep, but I put in Veteran's Day instead of Memorial Day.

    The same points remain. The sacrifice of our warfighters, and their families will never be forgotten.

    A pretty reliable reducer is the ballast resisters that Chrysler points ignition systems. GMs used them as well, up to the HEI distributors. They are fairly cheap as well.
