@TriggerHappy Use it in good health. It looks great.
Oh hail yea…!!
sweet!! Willy’s military version i see.
i will have to dig out all my old pics and scan them so i can upload some.
one of my jeeps was a 1977 cj5 Levi Strauss renegade. 304 4bbl, 3spd, Offenhauser finned alum. valve covers (really pricey, but the only ones you could get back then, and they are still 300.00 a pair). stainless headers, SmittyBuilt class 3 cage. dual shocks front and rear, hand built front pushbar, 15x10 solid chrome steel wheels with moon hubcaps.
It’s a ‘63 CJ5 with a Chevy 350, Dana 44’s with lockers & 33" tires. The roll cage is a little funky but hell for stout. Yea it apparently had a factory snorkel originally - I was thinkin’ about getting a stuffed Garfield or somethin to plug the hole heh heh. I want to get a better rear recovery bumper and tire carrier but it’ll do for now. It’s got a lot of fresh parts but still needs some work (noisy gear boxes)
if it has the original t90 3 speed trans. it will be a little noisy because of the straight cut gears.
Being military it would have originally had a 24 volt elect. system, and could have had snorkel, sealed plug wires etc.
Not exactly sure what trans it has yet but it is a four speed non synchro w/ granny low (with straight power punch in it lol) Jeeps are a science all their own and I have a lot to learn, I need to find a good forum to really start figuring out what I want/need to do. Been watchin a lot of Roadkill and Dirt every day vids
Heck yea! Some of these new atv & utv are pretty cool and I have definitely considered something like that. That’s some beautiful country there for sure…
You will like the 4spd. I had a 76 cj5 6cyl. with a rare, optional, factory 4spd in it.
I look forward to watching your progress in the future.
Here’s my 1991 Suzuki LT250R QuadRacer. My uncle bought this new in '91 and I got it about a year later when I was 15 and it’s been mine ever since. Sadly, I don’t ride it anymore.
@GL9CK Nice toy. Thanks for the picture of the snow. I have not seen any in over 6 years. I think I miss it.
Thank you! That was snow from last year or maybe 2 years ago now. We have been in a snow drought as well. We still get it, but we sure don’t get hit as hard or as frequently as we used to. This summer it’s been raining nonstop so I hope that carries over to this winter. I want another blizzard!
@GL9CK I live on the Oregon coast , they say it rains all the time here. NOT. We are in a drought also, but we don’t get snow.
that, my friend, is definitely off road…
not an off road vehicle per say but it was definitely off the road, google maps took me on an adventure when I went camping in the north georgia mountains and this happened.
Wow, that’s USCGC Northwind! She’s been decommissioned for quite a while now. When I was assigned to USCGC Sherman back in the late ‘70s and it was in a long-term shipyard overhaul, I almost got to go TAD to the USCGC Westwind (one of Northwind’s sister ships) for an Operation Deep Freeze deployment to Antarctica. I was bummed when I didn’t get selected for the deployment. Ended up staying with the Sherman pulling shipyard fire watches
@VAbowhunter I think working on Northwind was about the best job I ever had. Been to places I could never even begin to have imagined .
