    I really dont like the look of that. Plus the interior is too cramped for me. If I were to get a truck, it would be the new Chevy/Diesel

    It is a bit funky looking. Mostly because the wheelbase is 137". They probably should have designed the cab portion for a truck and tightened things up. Still a cool thing for Jeep to build. A 2 door version would be more usable wheelbase and better proportions.

    The Jeep Gladiator doesn't look bad though I prefer a "real" truck.

    Slowly getting back into business with the Tank. I found an engine in Damascus. A guy is pulling his whole drivetrain and Iam picking it up on Thursday. I will put the engine (mild build) in the Tank to get it on the road, rebuild the T18 trans and the Dana 20 Tcase. Maybe keep them for something else not sure.
    Should be rolling in an few weeks.

    It is here:
    20190822_201015-1612x907.jpg

    AMC 360, T18 Trans and Dana 20 Tcase
    It came with all the brackets, linkage and pedals for the T18. I may swap it out not sure. If you dont know, the T18 is a 4 speed that has a 6.something 1st gear (granny gear) that with my 4:1 Tcase and 4.10 gears might be pretty sweet
    Also came with headers, Holley 600 Carb, Edlebrock SP2P manifold , new starter, new alternator. The guy didn't want anything tossed it all in the trailer. I will start working on it tomorrow to find out more.

    Yep the fuel injection will work on this one. I dont remember how 3rd and 4th work on the T18. It has been quite a while since I've drivin something with one. (90s with my old Cherokee). Probably won't swap... I gotta remember I will probably sell it.
