    My name is Chuck and I live in South Bend, IN. My brother has dementia and gave me his 1948 Jeep Truck. It includes a new transmission as the old one has stripped teeth on the input shaft. Engine has been changed to an F head four, but it runs great.

    Welcome Chuck. Would be cool to see pics of your Jeep.

    On another note. Sorry about your Bro. I have a Brother with MS wheel chain bound. A slow long prolonged illness is tough to deal with. Do you find they have an easier time with it than we do? And I'm sorry. I don't mean the change topics here.

    HOL-LLY CRAP. Damn Chuck. That is fricking nice. I can honestly say, I've never seen one. What exactly is it called? Man, the potential that rig has.

    Looks really clean and cancer free from you pics. Can you start it? That's a huge plus if it does. What are your plans for it? You need to hang around here and post updates. I'm sure other members will feel the same way.

    It is 1948 Willys one ton pickup according to the title. Engine is '49 or '50 Fhead 4. Haven't tried to start it yet as the gas tank was full of 18 year old stale gas. Have new gas tank ordered and have to put the new transmission in. It also needs the brake pedal freed up and brakes checked.

    Wow. Sorry if i repeat myself. Lol. But WOW. A 48 Willys. Awesome. Great place to start with the fuel system. Also, change oil and filter. 25 bucks. A quick cheap switch out. And just a thought. Before you try to fire her up. Put a wrench on the front crank and see if you can turn it by hand. Could save you a lot of issues if you can't. If the motor isn't seized. That's an awesome advantage if you plan on restoring it.

    Sorry if I'm pointing out the obvious. Just wanna help.:) The best of luck with it.

    Sorry. Have to do this. WOW....AN ORIGINAL WILLYS. So Cool.

    My plan is to get it running, and make it safe to drive. It is too close to original to do a restoration on it. I'll clean up the rust, and make an occasional driver out of it. Don't want to do too much. They are only original once.
