SWB = 113


LWB= 120


1986 models w/metric ton where AMC20's all other years where D44's.

most everything up this way looks like that underneath.

People in the rust belt love 3 things:

PB Blaster


Air Tools


They're needed for most everything that goes on under my truck, and everything get's put back together with neverseize.
