Another MUTT mod that looks well done.

I'm sure some of you guys have seen this "thing" already.

Manufacturing, looks very well done, even if it is not my favorite truck anymore.

Wonder how well they actually worked out. If there really were 20 or more made, did they perform well? Wonder if they ended up like the FAVs, often overloaded and broken.

looks like a stretched Encore or growler... its probably okay but underpowered, with a larger, much more heavy body.

Drive shaft is made up of a truck shaft welded over the original ends. I will bet that due to the 4:88 gears and compound angles that it vibrates your fillings loose. That part of the design leaves a little to be desired.

Now that is just way to pretty to take out on the trails and tear up, but then again, I would not be able to hold back from doing just that with that Jeep, love to see pictures of entire vehicle especially the uniframe, the price listed was not bad, wish I had seen her listed, I would have bought her in half a heart beat, but that gold paint would have to go, I think a Glossy Black would look meaner!

Don't know who purchased it but I am aware of its' creation. These were built in Illinois for use by missionaries. This one got sidetracked and did not go overseas.
IIRC body was aluminum and slightly longer than a M151. There were less than thirty constructed.

Built in Illinois.... interesting - Thanks - That was a new piece of info I didn't know. Do you know the company name, by chance? Long shot, I am sure, but worth asking... How did you hear of them being built in Illinois? I would like to know, to keep following these tidbits of info, and learn as much as I can about them.
