Daniel Buck is a VFX artist, Visual Effects computer work for feature films and commercials. He’s had his 1946 Willys CJ-2A for about 5 years now, slowly modifying into the way he wants it. Some of the updates include replacing the stock engine with a diesel engine (Kubota V2203) and upgrading the axles (Ford 9″ rear, Dana 44 front) to improve the jeep’s offroad durability.
For him, it’s been a learning experience with a vehicle that he wouldn’t trade any other. He drives it every day to work, has driven it across country and taken it on a variety of other trips. He says he’s looking forward to the Alaska trip!
