Just Kidding, Not mine!
I found this while investigating an illegal tow yard operating in the City.
The owner was actually pretty proud of the work he'd done.

New hood is fitted, front nose on order and starting body work.
All running gear and the V8 came out of my 75 Jeep.
And that's how its done up right...



Thanks, BOY, I NEEDED THIS!

MY HERO!!!!! Now we talking! "You" don't need the Gumbo Mudders, because you will be running in sand not Black Jack mud. You only need a small winch because the sand doesn't stick to the drive train like mud does and form a suction on the drive train. "You" still need a brush guard/winch bumper front and rear plus a roll bar. Keep a house trailer tie down screw anchor in the car for when you get stuck between a rock and a hard place. "You" aren't going to have any trees to attach the wench cable too, so you screw the tie down anchor in the sand then hook the wench to, once you get stuck. When you are rock climbing, throw the anchor between two rocks and you are home free.

I was raised in the mud. Not much sand or rocky places here. Here you want something light weight, with good ground clearance and plenty gap between the lugged mud grips on your tires, so the mud will sling out the grips of the tire, while keeping good traction plus you don't sink in the soft mud, dragging your differential and flywheel cover in the mud. "You" need something with a little weight to it, wide all terrain tires so you don't dig a hole in the sand and a snorkel for the intake so you don't suck up sand in the carb. I'm like a fish out of water when it comes too all this highfalutin street car mumbo jumbo, but get me off road..... I'LL MAKE YOU PROUD!

HAY "fishslayer143"... Want to go in 50/50 on it? This would make the front page of the New Iberia Times! We would need to add a trailer hitch so we could drag the crawfish trap trailer behind it! Man, I can see it now....The Breaugh Bridge Crawfish Queen standing in the seat, while you drive down main street, leading the pack in the Breaugh Bridge Crawfish Festival Parade! Hell! You'd most probably be voted "KING"! YOU TALK ABOUT...PASS A GOOD TIME....AHEEEEE!

Finally got the oil leaks on the new engine stopped. Had to replace the factory valve covers with heavy duty ones plus install a good PCV valve.
