    Heres my take on yjs. I don't like the square headlights, they ride rough and there frames were even more prone to rot through then the tjs but the bodys almost seemed better when it came to rust. there simple leaf spring straight axles set ups are...

    the real cool thing about the GNs was how cheap it was to make them go fast. Even cheaper then the old small block chev. Theyd run mid to high 13s stock and for less then a grand on bolt on parts you could have them doing very low 12s and for about...

    Remington can not do it because they are a production shop. anybody that is a machinist or tool maker can do the job on a lathe. you are not going to do the job with a die ad die holder by hand.
