    Con-foundit and tarnasun..

    My truck is a little trooper but my guess is it doesn't come close to having the original 90hp anymore... It's on it's last legs. I miss my Jeep Wagoneer but I always wanted a Jeep J truck. Well, the other day, I saw a beauty for sale. Nearly the same year as mine, '77 or so, and gorgeous looking. $2500...


    Not having money sucks.

    Like this without the wood sidepanels..

    I like those old jeep trucks. Someday, I hope to have a 1966 GMC shortbed step side little window.

    Yes. It's called the "frame"

    I sat outside one day and watched a beautifully restored Jeep truck pull a stump out of the ground. The normal method wasn't working, so the guy back up right next to the stump and gunned it. When the chain got tight, the truck jumped about 2 or 3 feet in the air. The guy did that several times and the stump finally came whipping out of the ground. It was freaking awesome...

    I've seen that done with Ford and John Deere tractors....thought they were gonna flip over. But after a few jerks, the stumps usually lose. Its more interesting with dynamite though.

    I had that truck. In black.

    My Pathfinder is a much more competent off-roader. And I did have an opportunity to yank a stump out this summer

    I always thought Jeep was pronounced like the 'J' in Guadalajara...
