I bought this Willys Jeep about 2 years as a pile of parts. My 10 year old son and 7 year old daughter helped me rebuild it. Once the Jeep was almost finished we realized it needed a new engine. I’m a VW Diesel Guy… So I swapped in a VW TDI engine. I tried to keep the rest of the Jeep as original as possible. We drive this thing everywhere. It gets 38 mpg and has 120 hp 200 ft. lbs of torque. I’m running a T-18 4-speed with spicer 18 transfer case and a warn overdrive. Has stock CJ-3A axles with lock-right lockers front and rear with 5.38 gears. This build wouldn’t have been possible without Kaiser Willys parts!
