I'd like to thank B at Jeap Thrills for hooking me up with this 89 YJ for my new project... Black Betty

Plans are to 4 link it on 1 tons, BBC with 4 speed (465 205 combo) and 46's[36]

Here's a pic from B just after we loaded it up and were on our way home

Awesome, look forward to you build, like both your last couple trucks.

What is the "purpose" of this build (other than making a kickass truck)? Is the green truck too beautiful to wheel or are you tired of the little sidekick?

Actually I do need a couple things. I need the drivers side door striker pin(bolts to the tub) and the center gauge bezel. Let me know if you have either of those.[cheers]

Bezel, Speedo/tach. U can have. Just make sure it's compatible years as I see you have an islander logo.

door Latch pin? I have if were talking the same place. Or I can flip the passenger side over and say i have 2...

Glad Willy's didn't build rollover restraints!
