drift the back end, front end pulls like a M-Fer. Worked very well in the sand. Could throw it into a turn and then smash the throttle and it would pull hard out of the turn.

Then where does it fall? The 72 wagoneer shared many of the same parts. It doesn't really fall into the category of the cj. I've always seen it grouped in with the full size jeeps. So I go with it.

I dig it for sure, yours looks great...however they are the about same size as a tj, yj, cj, ect...and all the the jeeps share alot of parts.

I remember seeing this jeep in the for sale section
