    Never hear to much about the inline 6 getting rebuilt like that. Get some pics of it off road, wherever that can be done around here...

    Plenty of places in Iowa to wheel if you're a member of an offroading group!

    Not too many pictures that I have of off roading. Since there isn't really many spots to try the Jeep on. But the two pictures are from a big mud hole down by roller dam. (That's what pretty much provoked engine build, because I spun rod bearings!) It handles pretty nice offroad but would be nice if I had LSD. (Which I will this summer) the other picture of it climbing a snow pile is just a bit of mall crawling (I know what a shame)
