SHORTCUT

4 x 4 Australia - - Driven -

JEEP should have called this one JK-5, as it has the look and feel of a 1970s CJ-5. The base chas­sis is a two-door Wran­gler with 660mm re­moved, while body pan­els have been mod­i­fied to re­sem­ble an old CJ. Front and rear Dana 44 axles fit­ted with 4.10:1 gears sup­port a two-inch JPP sus­pen­sion, and FOX shocks man­age damp­ing. Other cool fea­tures in­clude stain­lesssteel CJ-5 bumpers and badg­ing, low­back bucket seats, a cus­tom grille, rock rails, and Bf­goodrich Mud-ter­rain tyres on clas­sic steel wheels.
