Default 1962 Willy's Jeep Truck

Finally got it painted and it is almost ready to go play. Waiting for a few more parts and a little more wiring, but it's getting close.

The truck is sitting on a shortened 1978 Chevy truck drivetrain. All stock at this point. I was able to put 37" Claws on it with no lift. Should help out with not breaking to much with all the stock geometry. Just got it all together other than the windshield and found out the engine has low oil pressure. Oh well. I guess I will have to build a new (more HP) engine for it. I will probably just add thicker oil and drive it a little to see what else shows up. Thanks for all the positive comments.
