I'm with you! These are UGLY! I only really noticed them because I recognized the doors as I drove by. Then I noticed the CJ looking hood.
I wonder if you could swap a whole CJ5/7 front clip on one? Maybe if it had a CJ5 front clip and cool little pickup bed in the back? Then again, the rear axle would be in an odd spot. Hm.
I think they are no turbo. I didn't look close but this is one of their engines. I don't see anywhere a turbo would/could be.
