1948 Jeep Willys Pickup Truck - Project Murderous Overkill Part V

It's been a few issues since we've been able to bring you an installment of our '48 Willys truck buildup. Our only excuse is that, unlike most other magazines that drop a vehicle off at a shop and swing by from time to time to snap photos of the progress, we're building this sucker in the driveway and out of a two-car garage in our spare time just like you would.

Despite a winter's worth of weather setbacks, too many hours behind the keyboard, building other projects, and child-rearing duties, we're gladly able to bring you up to speed on the project. Now that the suspension is done and it's a roller, we've sent the 455 off to the machine shop to be prepped to meet the drivetrain. Next time, we'll introduce you to the drivetrain since the engine is still a ways from completion.
