MISCELLANEOUS ● Truck has been in family since new. My father in law bought it new. I bought it from him for my son and then got it back years later. Was kind of a basket case after my son got done with it. Have built it into a reliable work horse (old mule). Contains parts from several XJ's, several MJ's, a TJ, 2 Dakotas, a lawn mower and a dishwasher. The only major things left from the original truck are: frame, doors and doghouse, hood, 1 fender, engine and rear end.
CC is Awesome!... Why Do You Think So? ● Best forum on the web that I have been on. And I have been on a bunch. Have learned a lot from members, sold some stuff, bought some stuff and hopefully helped a few folks along the way.
I'll be honest... I'm a sucker for a put-together kind of truck. The "Energizer Bunny" mentality behind it really shows how these trucks can continue to live on when the owner makes the decision to make a real commitment. Hat off to you! How many other vehicles are out there that people continue to build, rebuild, rebuild again, and probably rebuild at least one more time just because it's a part of the family. Congratulations, man!
