This 1948 CJ-2A, belonged to my farther who passed away in 1987. He served in the US Navy for over 22 years before his death. This Jeep was his pride and joy. He was always tinkering with it and taking the family out four wheeling. After his death, it sat covered in a field for over 20 years. It was always my dream to restore this for him, because I had so many memories of him with this Jeep. As you can see in the “before” and after photo it was not in good shape after sitting all those years. In 2007, with the assistance of 4wdspecialties, I had a complete off frame restoration of this 48 Willys CJ-2A, that took almost one year to complete. I kept the original motor and transmission even kept it a six volt system. Now as shown in the “after” pictures, it has been restored to it’s original glory in honor of my father.
