    ' but I think that's likely a dumb question"

    I can think of a couple of "dumb" questions I didn't ask that ended up costing me dearly.

    Pretty, pretty, pretty!

    I'd vote for topless also.

    The heat shield on the firewall is a good addition. It is amazing how much heat that little L-134 generates on a warm summer day.

    Multi-weight Vehicle Weight Rating

    Just a bit of trivia about the '51 truck:

    A. The '48 was rated as a three-quarter-ton or one-ton depending on the size tires that were put on it. (The truck weighs 3200 pounds empty). I suspect...

    Very nice. The 1951 model year was the first year for the F134 engine and the new styling changes (the pointy grille). Under the hood is going to be interesting with the hydraulics for the plow.

    When I go out and show Ham’s ’48 Truck, people take a look and say; ”Oh, it’s a ’55 Jeep”. I correct them and say; “No, it’s a ‘48”. Then, the immediate response is; “Well, why do you have a ’55...

    No rear brakes

    Since most of the braking on a CJ-3 comes from the front brakes, it would not be unusual for someone to have disconnected the rear brakes, especially with the improved braking from front discs. If...
