5 of 18
John Palmer’s red CJ-5 looks fairly stock but an SM420 provides plenty of crawling gear despite the sputtering of an older carb. The Jeep also sports an older Warn 8274, a York compressor converted to on-board air, an open Dana 25 front, and rear Dana 44 toting a Powr-Lok. Gears are 5.38s for 33x12.50R15 BFG KM2s front and Cooper Discovery rears. Steering is made effortless with a Saginaw power steering conversion.
