I find this a very exciting article as I have both, my Willy's is 1946 CJ2A and the teardrop is a Kenskill Clone kit built in 2012. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:



The only reason I have not hooked the two together is I would need an O.D. unit for the Jeep to get anywhere in a decent time frame, but I do not want to part with $1200 smackers (Atlas O.D.) for a vehicle I've owned almost 30 years and maybe put 500 mi per year on it. Mostly around town but do tow it to the mountains every year for a couple of weeks.

Very true Red Jeep, I did have a 64 CJ5 with 35's, it had 4.27 diff gears, but with the 35's I could cruise at 60-65 no problem. With the exception Chevy steering, Rancho suspension and 11" brakes it is an all original drive train with 5.38's. The old Warn overdrives are far and few now days and they say the Atlas O.D. is superior. I will keep my eyes and ears open with hopes of scoring a good used either/or for the right price. :thumbsup: Thanks for sharing! :thumbsup:
