    Yes, low budget is creative AND fun! Now that it’s February, it’s time to think about continuing to resurrect the Ferd. Fuel filter and transmission flush are the first items to address before the snow is gone. I sold quite a bit of firewood this winter and my number one need for the truck right away this spring will be to start cutting hauling and stacking for selling next season. Current state, resting peacefully.
  6. I purchased this old land barge and brought it home yesterday. The price was right and it will fulfill a need I have for hauling heavy items that the MJs are not as well suited for. I plan to haul firewood and saw logs with it. I also hope to haul plenty a building materials for a medium sized pole barn in the years to come. Specs: XLT, 4wd, 351 Windsor, Auto Trans and Front Hubs, Ext Cab, Longbed, Topper and Hitch. Nothig really big planned for it, a few items to clear up mechanically and body wise but it runs down the road just fine as it is. 255K Miles. Pics are from lunch on the drive and right after I got it home.

    thoughts on 3x5 sticker to honor Don

    Agreed! The fact that his truck actually exists plays a huge part in this. The Camo MJ or the American Flag MJ, while both unique in their own rights don’t exist (or if they do no one knows them as well) nor do they hold a candle to Don’s MJ for representation of what this club is all about in my opinion. Don’s truck was clearly owned by an MJ enthusiast. Can’t touch the plain Red MJ version, I feel that one fills a much needed “my truck is stock and I love it the way it is” or “I just got the truck and I’m saving up to build it into what I want” roles.

    I need a renix one, preferably the nicest one you have as it’ll go right into my ‘90. I’m only filling my tank half full right now because it weeps fuel at the hole the electrical connection runs through. The one that’s in there right now had been hacked up by the previous owner and it’ll be nice to get it back to the way it should be with the stock unit. Thanks for posting these up!

    Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas All!
  11. Repost of the next oldest thread... I’ll finally weigh in: Nope... This thing is clean but it has been messed around with in too many areas to justify that price. The “topper”, interior door panels and the S-10 rear bumper really are turn-offs for my appetite!

    One of our own is down

    Thanks for the info Eagle. All the best to you Don, get well soon!

    Well, the big truck stalled out in traffic on me on account of summer gas still in the tank and a frozen fuel filter. I pushed it to the side of the road and got a short tow from a stranger to a gas station. Rather than attempt to fix it at the station I called on my wife and the MJ to get the heap home. Stuck to the backroads with as small of hills as we could find, made it home no sweat. I will say that the MJ did not enjoy tugging this heavy thing around though :)
  14. How big of a shop Ben? Make sure you have the drain plugs pulled out of the floor of the buggy, otherwise I feel you’ll have a bathtub full of water in the buggy in the spring!

    The Prodigal Son Returns

    That ‘92 came with a visor. I see you’ve already removed it. Should be able to pull some sweet cash out of that if you don’t want it... Yes, life changes do take away from wrenching time, two young kids here as well...

    opinion on first MJ purchase

    Price seems high. To me, a $9K MJ should be a highly modified off-road rig with some high end parts or a low mileage truck that is completely stock, show truck quality. This truck is neither, for starters the wheels and rear bumper are aftermarket parts. Radio and speakers are not stock, neither is the center console ON the bench seat. It looks nice for sure but that’s a $3K-$5K truck to me.

    Anything worth pulling off a Renix XJ?

    Is a bare bones XJ or what package/options does it have?

    I like the sticker on the top of your toolbox. Whats the plans for the “new” truck?

    Too Much Sheat (Indiana) update

    FYI - I have rolled back the renix style odometers. It’s been a few years, but I feel you need to take them apart to an extent to do it, though it wasn’t hard. I did it for when when I swapped from the base cluster to the full cluster with all of the gauges. I did not roll back to zero, rather I rolled it to the correct mileage for the truck that was on the cluster I was replacing. So the truck still has the correct mileage on it even though I swapped the clusters.

    I know what I'll be doing tomorrow

    ... and that’s well worth $50!

    So what parts did you nab?
  24. Man, I could use either one of those! What a deal!
