Name is Doug. Live in Missouri about an hour west of St. Louis. First Jeep a 94 Cherokee 4.0 4x2 bought in Missouri and except for 4 years in the NW we still have it and is rust free with 256000 miles. Have my baby, my 87 4x2 swb 'manche I bought in the NW with 2.5 and 4 speed. Overhauled at 260.000 with Clifford header, Delta cam, and Flowmaster, probably hitting about 130 hp now and does a good job of scootin' down the interstate.

BTW, I turn 61 in 2 months and am pastor of a Lutheran church.

 

Luv my jeeps!!!! Best vehicles I have EVER owned! No car payments since 1999!

 

Wrong Chapter kid.

Am I in this region? I technically live pretty close to the rockies... This is so confusing, I'm all stressed out. :???:

 

Lucky for you, you are one of us.

Okay then. I'll say hi to everybody. Hi everybody. I'm Scott. But people call me Dirty. Or DC. I've also got a few other handles and some really inappropriate nicknames.

 

See my build threads if you want to understand the depth of my insanity. :nuts:

Whoops! :dunce: Didn't see the NWest thingie! Does it count if I grew up in Coos Bay, Oregon and bought my 'manche while at a church in Milton, Washington? ;)

I'm Willy. My wife and I moved to Kent the end of '07. She is going to the University of Washington for her master's degree. Prior to that we lived in TX just outside of Austin for 3 1/2 years. We are both originally from KS.

 

On to the important stuff. :dunce:

 

This is my wife's '88 MJ. It started as 2WD with the Peugeot 5 speed and D35. It is now 4WD with an AW4, 231 doubler, Ford 8.8, TNT Y link, 35" Mickey Thompson MTs, Auburn ECTEDs front and rear, and other stuff. See the build thread in my signature for more details.

 

 

Picked this one up Saturday. It is a 2WD '91 with a 4.0 and AW4. Build thread is also in my signature.

 

 

This was my '98 XJ. It was my third running XJ. It is now in pieces in the garage with the remnants preparing to be scrapped.

 

 

This one is my ongoing Scout project. I bought in when I lived in KS and have drug it across the country with me. I actually have most of the parts for it, now I need to put them all together. The current plan is CUCV axles, Jeep 4.0L, AW4, 231 doubler, 4.3 Atlas, H1 beadlocks, somewhere around 40" tires, three link with track bar front, triangulated four link rear, extended wheelbase, etc.

 

That's the tow rig and one of the trailers too. '06 Dodge Ram 3500 with the Cummins.

 

Image Not Found

 

This is the other trailer.

 

 

The dogs - Axle on the left, Jeep in the middle, and Moab in the back.

 

 

I'm also VP of my 4WD club, Cascade 4x4s.

is your cherokee for sale i swear i seen it on criagslist

 

Ya.. it was for sale on Craig's list and a young fella from the mainland brought his 89 over and we did the trade thing.. I got his with rebuilt 4.0 and new AX15.. very sweet trade and it's my new daily driver and camping rig for this year.. I needed to be able to work on my MJ project so I traded off the last rig!

 

How's things up in PG..

Are you referring to the Peugeot BA10/5 5 speed transmission? If so, you may want to check again. The Peugeot only came with the 4.0. I think the 2.5 had the AX5, maybe the AX4.

Hi guys.

My name is Dave. I live outside of The Dalles Oregon.

I have an '89 Comanche 6" lift with 35's. Dana 30 front, Dana 35 rear with limited slip units(4:10 Yukon gears).

Swapped in '92 engine and wiring harness, with '94 AX 15/231. Interior is Cherokee from a totaled '92.

It's not quite done. Still need to build or buy winch bumper and finish the bodywork to paint.

It's my daily driver.
