That title is kind of misleading isn't it? Sorry

Many of these Jeeps do turn into hybrids though don't they? Tcase changes, tranny swaps, engine swaps...

Is there an axle/truck model guide anywhere?

I've got a really cheap GM 3/4 ton truck that i can buy but i don't know what axles may be in it, or even if the 1991 gm is ifs... Anyone know?

I should have mentioned that it is 150 km from here so I haven't seen it. Thanks

Really, 3/4 Ton? Why not go to 1 Ton axles?
