Or, you could always cruise craigslist for a project, drive out to an old farm on a Saturday and buy every Willy's Part some old guy has in his barn (three 47-49 Willy's in pieces), throw it all on a trailer and spend a summer with your two son's building one from the ground up.....for a LOT less $$, and WAY more memories. Here's a pic of the lovingly dubbed "Frankenjeep"

I sent my wife a picture of one these...she sent me a picture of a couch!

What an awesome looking machine. Surprised they didn’t come out with one of these things a long time ago.

Made by Mahindra, a massive Indian conglomerate($13 Billion turnover). Quality (of Mahindra) is hit and miss..

You want off road, save your money and future headache and just buy a 1985 Toyota 4x4. 22RE EFI with solid axle. Put Chevy springs in the rear, F150 shock mounts in the front. Dual case it with a Marlin crawler. Swap out the push-pull steering for a hi-steer crossover from a 90 something. Let it take you over anything out there and be confident in the reliability that it will get you back home.

You'll spend a lot of time passing broken jeeps on the trail, and you can say "We understand the Jeep thing, that's why we build Toyotas."

You say that after swapping out 50+% of the Toyota parts for American stuff...

Concur on the Mahindra quality, or lack thereof, on a seemingly random basis. That said, it'll be interesting to see how this shakes out. I suspect it'll be more than adequate for the people who use trail vehicles to get places to do things, vice the people who are just trying to break shit by doing silly things. S/F.....Ken M

I would absolutely LOVE to make my own offroad project vehicle. I got friends with MIG/TIG skills and that rebuild vettes all the time. I'm sure they'd be down for creating a mini-JLTV for my own ranch use. A plasma cutter and a few trips to the junkyard would be just some good clean redneck fun that I haven't had since high school.

because no one's been hunting '85s since.... '86.

might as well throw in a Cummings R2.8 as well, bob the bed, and maybe swap in Currie 44/60 with portals front and rear, so you don't break the birfields.
