A "blast from the past" is the best way to describe Dewey Gent's '93 Wrangler. He has been wheeling this Jeep in this basic configuration for over a decade now, and we really dug the well-done decade-old swapped-in parts. Under the hood is a '97 5.7L Chevy V-8, still bolted to the 4L60E transmission that was mated to it originally. An NP241 was used out of a '93 Chevy to send power out to the 1995-vintage Currie 9-inch axles with 4.88 gears and ARB Air Lockers. A home-built coil conversion provides enough room to run a set of 35x12.50R15 BFG MTs on 15x12 inch wheels. Old-school tubular nerf bars have done their share of protecting the rockers with similar vintage front and rear 2x4-inch square tube bumpers protecting the front and rear.
