When we think "sand Jeep," one like Steve Fusilier's '51 flattie comes to mind. This Jeep could be duplicated for not too much coin and would be equally at home in the dunes of Michigan, Oregon, or Oklahoma. A warmed Chevy 350 engine and TH350 tranny deviate from stock, but the factory Dana 44 rear and Dana 25 front deal with the power just fine in the sand. A Saginaw power-steering box is hung on the driver-side framerail for quicker steering, and big 13.00-15 Padla Trak tires throw roosts from the back and lessen the burden on the BFG A/T front tires.
