Well, I have decided to build another Willys Wagon. I love these vintage old iron classics. This 1962 was completely stock and running when I bought it. But my plans are quite different than stock. This will be a complete restoration from the ground up. But I am not going to run any of the stock drivetrain. The motor, trans, t-case, and axles have all been removed and in its place will be a 1995 5.7L engine, 4L60E 4 speed automatic transmission, and NP241 transfer case from 1995 Chevy Tahoe. In fact, I bought a beautiful Tahoe and stripped it to the bone for everything I thought I might need. I took the air conditioning, cruise, tilt column, power leather seats, drivelines, complete wiring from front to back, interior lights, grab handles, brake and fuel pedal. It is saving me a ton of time and money to go this route. Lots of great parts.The front axle will be my high pinion Ford Dana 60 from a 92 F350. I narrowed it approximately 8". I installed 4.56 gears, a Detroit locker, 35 spline Superior Evolution chromoly inner and outer axle shafts and Yukon Super Joints. It also has 35 Spline Warn locking hubs. Then I had the 8 lug hubs machined down and redrilled for a 5 on 5 1/2 lug pattern. I installed Ballistic Fab high steer arms and I built a custom tie rod and drag link with 1 1/2" .250 wall tubing and ¾" rod ends. This thing is bomb proof. The rear axle is a Currie Enterprises Ford 9" with 4.56 gears, Detroit locker, 35 spline chromoly axle shafts and a Strange Engineering 3rd member. It has Explorer disc brakes with integrated e-brake.For the suspension, I am using BDS leaf springs front and rear. Wrangler springs in front and Jeep XJ Cherokee springs in back. They are a perfect fit for the Willys Wagon frame. Although, I had to extend the front frame rails and replace all the spring anchors to accommodate the longer/wider spring. The steering system is an AGR Rock Ram System with the high output pump, new Saginaw box, and hydraulic steering ram. I originally had these axles and steering components on my rock crawler, but decided to transfer everything to the Willys to do something new and different for a while. Here are some photos of the way it looked when I got it home.
