    This Willy's Truck is a little beat up and has some abuse, they tried to stuff the 4x4 in gear while the truck was moving. there is a hole in the front end yolk where something broke thru the front gear cover inspection plate. what do you think?
    axles, spider gear, possible 3rd member ?

    Who sells parts for these online? eyebrow image

    It has a 4 banger, they say it runs.......no battery so couldnt fire it up.

    Thanks for your time
