    Great survivor farm Jeep. Removal of a few leaves is quite alright in the name of drivability. Speedy Sleeves work well to retain the original yokes. We look forward to seeing...

    Jeeps had the same mentality as farm tractors had in that vintage. The instructions were, (in some tractor operator manuals like Allis Chalmers) to sit on the high side fender, and be prepared to...
