5 of 10
An East Coaster who likes to take West Coast lines, David "Rosco" Baandt was pure entertainment in his '73 CJ-5. Rosco installed a warmed Ford 302 and a Jeep T-18 in place of his factory units. The factory Dana 20 T-case runs 2.46:1 Bronco Dana 20 gears. The front Dana 30 runs 4.27s and a Torsen limited slip. A Dana 44 rear with 4.27s and a locker survive the 35-inch General Grabbers. A 1-inch body lift and 2.5-inch springs make this an inexpensive trail veteran of 25 years.
