For the longest I have tried to find out where the 18 missing pockets on the Jeep frame went, but now I have a possible answer: This over 17 foot Jeep DJ-5 for sale on eBay stole it so that it could houses two inline small block Chevy V8 and a pair of side mounted radiators. Just look at this dirty contrast.
What an absurd machine reader Derek and Sean sent me by email: It's an old Jeep Dispatcher with two rebuilt Chevy 355 small blocks bolted one in front of the other, sending power to a TH400 three speed automatically and finally to a blade-sprung 1993 Jeep XJ rear axle. Most interestingly, the engines are cooled via two side mounted radiators with electric fans attached to them:
In front, there is a transverse blade-spread I-Beam shaft that the seller says comes from a 1955 Ford. The tires are 35-inch terrain, which is stopped by the front and rear brake pads and turns over a rack a gear control system a 90's Ford, of kind.
Custom frame, says the seller, is made of two-six-six 3/16 inch thick tubes, and is paired to a subframe for the engine and trans through some rubber festivals.
Interestingly, the coolant seems to be transported to the radiators via red PVC pipes and, according to the seller, is motivated by two electric water pumps.
The number "two" is really the theme here. It's a two-wheel drive Jeep powered by two engines, cooled by two radiators, receives fuel via two new fuel pumps and two new Holley 600 carbs, and gets sparked from two new Optima batteries.
Two are also the number of digits that this jeep apparently can not score in the field of fuel economy because the seller thinks it scores around 7.5 MPG, which I suppose is not surprising considering the two engines and Estimated 4,000 pound anchorage weight .
The amazing Jeep, complete with the highly appropriate "Never Underestimate a Motivated Redneck" at the back, is for sale in Virginia on Craigslist and eBay right now for $ 15,000. I have no idea it's a good deal or not, because I've never seen such a thing.
It's a magic machine.
