Looks like a pro build and a fast one too.
Was actually built by a New Zealander who now lives Stateside. I have build pictures that he sent to me showing things like lowering the windshield into the cowl more so it lines up with the height of the side windows. It is full of little tricks like that. Also has a fully tilting bed.
I have a mouse mat with a photo of that Willys on it as well as a Tee Shirt. They were put out by Kurb Side Kustoms.
In fact my avatar is of this very Willys.

Marcus; I looked over the pics again and yes, the builder has done a lot of details that might only be noticed if you had another truck side by side. I have often wondered why the bottom of the windshield is so high, and now that I've seen one modified, I understand why he did it.
Nice avatar.
