    what do you use for a wallet?

    Years ago I across some old wallets at an estate sale. I bought them because they had some great western art on them. Old and worn just added to the character of them. My guess they were from the 60s-50s judging from the style of the western hats on the cowboys. I’m looking into doing some leather work so I’m going to do something with them. Just not sure what yet.

  2. I really only looked at the bed. Looked very straight both sides. Someone took care of this truck hardly any body dings in it. Not even door dings. Scorch marks looked as if grass under it had started it burning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That a rare truck and expensive midsize for the time. 4x4 Eliminator very cool. They made 3,142 Comanches that year and I’m thinking around 500 were Eliminators. So less then that were 4x4 Eliminators. I’m pulling the 500 number off the top of my head from my past research so don’t quote me on that. 2 years ago one came up on Craig’s list in LA area. It had a very crappy Macco pant job. All stock and they were asking 14,000. It was gone in 2wks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Black interior

    Have black door panels not sure if they have the pockets and black small console. Interested in cash I’ve got most of the parts you have already. I have a line on a black bench seat in good condition I just to pull it from the yard. It needs to be conditioned from being in the sun but it’s in great shape. Also have a lower black after market seat cover. PM me if your interested. Have the gray dash bezel and black sport steering wheel too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    286k and unsure

    Depends allot on rust and what your are willing to do keep it on the road. Preventive maintenance is a big deal if you see some thing that you know should be fixed do it. Don’t wait till it breaks then fix it. If that rust is starting do some thing to stop it. My friend who ran his 4.0 Cherokee to 450,000 gave it to me because it wouldn’t pas smog anymore. Now it’s Bluenotenick’s and my parts car. A car treats you how you treat it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    98 Cherokee

    Rusted body is the big one. Do some poking with a screw driver but ask first. If I had a guy walked around a 20 year old car and check every little thing on it and try to ding me on each thing. I would tell him that if he wanted a new car he should go by one. And I have done that before. It’s a 20year old car and it is what it is. End of story and end of my dealing with that guy. NEXT. If the bones are good you should buy it. Don’t let the 18 days for sale scare you, we’re just past the Christmas Holidays and people are trying to recover their finances and no tax refunds yet. Not the best time to sell a car. That could work to your advantage. Best of luck to you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Came across this jeep history. Interesting read.

    Ya that’s what I remember from my childhood. My uncle finished up a 43 Willys before he passed away. He literally got it as a pile of yellow rusted parts. The next time I saw it it was a full on war time Jeep. Restored to its veteran status. He did a beautiful job on it. The only thing it needed was the canvas top. I’m heading to AZ at the end of the month to get the Jag I’ll take some pics of it. I would say my fav is the Scrambler then the Commando. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If you get it Nick get a motion sensor light out front. Most have a cable that runs door to door under the car. They have a tendency to disappear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Eliminator bumper color

    I like it going to get one. My truck still has the original silver Eliminator bumpers on it. The truck is black so I’m going to stick with silver. I’m going to sell it so it’s going to be advertised as an Eliminator and it need to look like one. According to what I’ve read all Eliminators came out with silver bumpers. If anyone finds different info please tell me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
