Biggest bang for the buck I've seen is the Engo being sold by JeepAddOns over in the vendor section. Under $300 for 9k pounds and I believe free shipping. Best deal I've seen.

That's CJ equipment actually. MB/GPW WWII jeeps had 9 grill slots, and no PTO.

Good eye.
I have been immersing myself in Jeep lore, and that grill detail was one of the interesting things I noted.
I never would have caught that, however.

I drove the one in my avatar for 30 years. Hard to miss!

Story is, Willy's adopted the 7 slot grill logo because the government owned the rights to Willy's design of the military jeep, including the 9 slot grill.
