    The 8 leaf will do just fine for your application as a stock rig. The 10 leaf is for the military and vocational jeeps that needed the beefier capacity, outside of the farm jeeps that used the 10...

    I like your thinking. Much like taking a Jaguar and dropping in a blown Chevy small block. At least then it would be reliable. The biggest problem is that the electrical system was built by Lucas...

    I agree with Bmorgil on the removal of the helper spring. You may get a half inch of lowering, but it will ride a bit better.

    Austin Champs..... Like owning a Jeep but 10 times the aggravation on finding good parts and keeping it running. They are capable little fellers, but I wouldn't go near one, nor would entertain the...

    Welcome zookeepwr,

    It is common to find the grease fitting installed. The box developed a leak somewhere in history, and that was the simple solution. But, the grease does not get into all the...

    BobBoyce,

    No problem on the updates, we completely understand.

    The hitch will not be all that difficult to remove. A 4 1/2" grinder with some cut off wheels will make short work of cutting...

    I was bass ackward about the placement of the KW filter. Bmorgil is 100% right on the money. It still isn't a bad idea to filter the fuel before the pump, especially on the military versions with...

    Bohonkie,

    You can use the filter that you purchased, and adapt it to the inlet of your fuel pump, but most of us with questionable fuel tanks use the cheap plastic clear fuel filters. For the...

    Might need to print a scale Pelago in uniform, surrounded by the dancing girls. Then don't forget Jake the Retriever.

    I would be suspicious that there isn't some cylinder damage from the beating that took place. I agree with Bmorgil in having the block sonic tested. I would be inclined to sleeve the block, just to...

    Welcome Dadsonproject!

    Love the truck, and especially like the vintage camper shell. Reminds me of the camper shell from Clint Eastwood's Every Which Way but Loose.

    I like your method of cleaning out all the collected junk from the floor board. The roll cage worked well to turtle shell the body.
