Re: WILLYS Jeepin

You might find more action on the Full or Mid-sized forums. Otherwise, there are websites that are fully dedicated to Willys action like this http://mvpimages.net/willys/show.htm.

See Jayme ASAP

Re: WILLYS Jeepin

They are here!! Just because most of the topics here cover CJ,YJ,TJ. These are the ones mostlv driven on and offroad daily. The little flatties are mostly offroad or restored. Redbeard has a very nice one. You have a question on a flaty just ask. Some one will post back.

Re: WILLYS Jeepin

I've been given lots of good advice when I've asked questions on this board about my '57 Willis CJ-6.
Just mention the word "Willys" and the 'old Jeep guys' start comming out of the woodwork.

Re: WILLYS Jeepin

Hey Nickmil, what did you take off the Scout frame? I am assuming the "Terra" is the same as the "Travelall"? Why not just use a Scout II frame? Are you going to run the D60 semi-floater or just the D44? I am keeping conversion info in the back of my mind for my future swap to a Scout II frame if needed (I have 3 of them, perfect shape).

Re: WILLYS Jeepin

Hey Jeepn,
A Scout Terra looks a lot like a Scout II but is longer. Some of them have a half-cab configuration and were used like a pickup. It is actually nothing at all like a Travelall. The relationship of Scout II and Terra is like CJ7 and CJ8.
