Very cool B)

I presume to make a Willys style Jeep?

Looks like an everlasting but slightly modded chassis there. some different brackets for the body perhaps?

Chassis looks pretty normal to me apart from the ends where it looks like they were cut off for the bumpers.

Apparently the body (a real Jeep body, not a "kit") arrives this week so hopefully we will see how it bolts on.

Curious to know why it's extended so much for an 8.5" difference in wheelbase.

Looking forward to seeing more!

Not sure, he did mention something about optimal alignment of body mounts as his next pictures so perhaps that informed the decision on cutting. It's not a lot greater than an 8 inch cut.

He was asking about ideas for driving a cable speedometer from what is normally an electric impulse from the t-box.
