Event-prepping the Willys M-170
It's always a process deciding which vehicle I'm going to take to the annual Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari event held the first weekend of March. This year I decided it would be my nearly all original M-170. Other than the old-school Smittybilt roll bar, Cutlass locking hubs, genuine KH Renegade I wheels, and missing seats, it's all original.You can read all about how I get it into shape to drive to the event in the June 2014 issue of Jp magazine. I'll give you a teaser: you'll laugh when you see what I used to build the seat frame for the new Smittybilt low-back buckets.
