a quick internet search of johnny5ive turned up some results. most notably a facebook page about his business working on and selling parts/vehicles for first gen isuzu troopers. i sent a message asking if he ever finished the willys. i have yet to receive a response.
Hey guys, Yes it's been a while and this project definitely took a back seat to life in general. I'm back in the saddle, have spent the last couple days getting tires changed, loading up all the parts and towing the Willys to my new home in town. The plan is to dedicate the next couple weeks to this project and make it a daily driver. All the parts are accounted for, now it's just time and determination. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?...heater¬if_t=like¬if_id=1491783326532062
