    Saw this Jeep (Capital J!) at Cars and Coffee in Cary, NC - October 2013, and couldn't tell what the engine was. Any hard-core Jeep guys know?

    Missing its bumper and top as well.
    Bob, that engine looks odd? Fording kit or?
    Looking at the air cleaner and three cylinders in view, Im wondering if someone swapped a V6 Dauntless into the 715, or am I looking at it wrong???

    It seems counter-intuitive but I heard that the cranks in the 4 main I6's were actually stronger than their 7-main counter parts because of the way the crank was designed. The /6 was a 4-main engine too. Bob, can you comment on this?
