    Default Keep your eyes peeled...

    I think I've made up my mind... that I want my next venture to be a CJ-8 (otherwise known as a jeep scrambler) so far UH and online searching have weilded no good deals as of yet... (the only ones I've found have been extremely well maintained and have had tons of work put into them and made them too nice looking to take off road and also made them cost lots of $$$$$$$) So if ya happen to see one somewhere that looks like its in decent shape lemme know!
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    I know a Jeep guy who somehow manages to find old Jeeps . . . if you're interested I can PM you his phone number. This is the same guy who has the old Jeep (Willys?) that I've posted pics of on this site.

    You looking for something strictly offroad? If you are, there are military Jeeps with huge tires and clearance that will make the new ATV's look like kid's toys. I went for a ride in one last summer and the guy drove it over a slash pile that was 20 feet high. Pretty radical but seriously all-terrain. The one I went in cost about $1200.
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    well it needs to be street legal to get to and fro, but fuel economy and comfort is of no importance... whereabout did he get the jeep?

    Remember when purchasing said vehicle you will want it to be easy for stephie to get the car seat in and out. LOL

    Dave Smith . . . he lives right here in town. The only guy I know who owns at least four Jeeps that are licensed and on the road (a couple of Cherokees, an old Jeep pick-up, the Willys (at least I think it's a Willys . . . maybe one of the early generation CJs) . . . and on top of that he even has a Unimog!

    Dave has an uncanny ability to find Jeeps . . . which he often takes in and turns around and fixes up before selling them. If you're still interested I'll give you his number. He's a good guy.

    Sounds good . . . UHOP pizza is always good in my book though . . . I'll have to play it by ear though . . . after working mega hours for the past two weeks with only a day off here and there Heidi has off a whole two days off in a row on Saturday and Sunday and as such we're hoping to go grocery shopping and work on the house (if you do come in to town, stop by . . . I can show you our finished bedroom and hall -- it looks much nicer with paint and flooring . . . at this point it's hard to tell where and when I'll be available this weekend.
