A South African CJ2A with Toyota FJ40 running gear and a Nissan engine
"I started rebuilding in February 2002, starting from scratch. I used the Willys body and chassis, and I bought a Toyota FJ40 to use as a donor vehicle. I used everything from the FJ40 (differentials, gearbox, transfer case, complete steering). I used an I6 2.8 litre Nissan motor (L-28) for the powerplant and it is working perfectly. I fitted a set of 33-inch BFGs and painted it like the American flag.
"I had to extend the chassis about 100mm to get everything to fit the
way I wanted it. Well after six months' of hard work and dedication
I started it and attended my first 4X4 meeting with it. I didn't
break down. Not bad for a first-timer (I think)!"
