    Hey Rossi lovely Jeep Mate, one thing to note, seeing it has a larger engine, be careful as they can warp the chassis.

    Glad you know your Willy's. When we found it in the field it had a shovel mount as well still on the side. I was amazed as we saw this in a farm field in CA that the body had very little rust. I knew when we opened the tool box under passenger seat and it was not roached out we were gonna buy it. I knew it was an early one but did not know year until we got it home and I started to look it over. When I found out it was the 1st model year and #296 of the first 1800 ever made I knew we had something. Still am a dummy for not being smart at a young age to restore to original specs.

    You are wise. My grandfather was a craftsman as a welder. The cross member bar is something I did not photograph under the jeep. It really was a work of art. The underside of this thing is like that Tiger Tank in the movie fury. I always ask people to slide underneath to see the Cross member bar and they kind of look at me like what? I was proud of how my Grandfather worked the Chassis. I have been driving for about 9 years now and no issues yet. I kind of baby her.

    Funniest and strangest thing happen last fall. I was cruising along and something hit me so hard on my left temple I about passed out. I did not know what happened. Pulled over quick as I saw stars. I had blood on my left cheek. I heard flopping in the back seat and bed. I turned to find a Rooster Pheasant. He had flown into my head broadside. I was lucky for sure. Could have gotten knocked out and rolled it. Too Funny. Got home and my left cheek was bruised up pretty bad. So I strap in and watch for birds. Falling out is not an option of course.
