Kurtis Brown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, had just flipped his '79 CJ-7 the day before. We never did the get the entire story, but he got his 400ci-powered Jeep back on its wheels and brought it out in time to show us how they wheel '80s-era sedans in Wisconsin. A Dana 44 front with ARB Air Locker, Ford 9-inch rear with a spool might not sound like the beefiest drivetrain, but Kurtis beats on it and its proven reliable so far.
