Rob should know the answer on how many '91's were made.......he's the 'keeper-of-the-count' :yes:

 

That's great that the yard would sell you the whole truck :thumbsup:

 

And I know what you do with them :brows:

 

Funny thing is the column shift, I snagged 3 - '90's in a row last year that all had column shifts :dunno:

 

Either they were trying to use up the column shifts near the end, or they were running short on floor shifters for the XJ's them couple of years :hmm:

yeah he has sold me whole jeeps before. he knows what I do and has no problem with it. I trade off between him and an other guy sending them my junk scrap. they get what ever they git for it when they crush stuff. that way I can keep the yard clean of scrap and i do not plan on calling the crusher here so it works out great.

I will post pics soon..

Heck, in my experience you hardly need a cup hold if you drink out of cans in the MJ. If you go somewhere and have a drink, like fast food or something I'll need them. If I'm drinking a beer or coke thats in a can, I just sit it in the divit in the bench seat, behind the shifter, and 4x4 control.

 

I haven't been offroad with it like that. With regular streat driving/out in the country, or in the field at the farm...that beer hasn't spilled yet. These MJ's were built for cruisin' and boozin'. (I'm not promoting drinking and driving.) :cheers: The only time I drink beer while I'm driving is out in the country, and on the farm. Once I hit the city I don't cuz we have cops out the a$$ here. That is a neat custom cup holder though.

well finaly got pic's. it was realy shady where the jeep was so the pic's did not come out all that well.

 

Cool find.

 

BTW, it looks to me like you took that image with a Kodak DX7440(according to the exif data). Next time set it to force flash(or fill flash as they call it). That way you can get more detail from an image that is in mixed light or when a subject is silhouetted or has a bright light behind it like the sun(though ya should really have the sun behind you when ya take a pic, ya don't always have that option). Here is a pic of my truck I took using the flash and having the sun nearly in the image. Without the flash, the truck would have been extremely underexposed. I couldn't move the truck because I was painting it at the time:

yeah I hear you but have no clue what your talking about when it comes to crap a$$ digital cameras...

It sounds like you know what your talking about and I thank you for the info but me and tech crap do not mix.... It took me a year to finaly know how to set the date...LOL

when I want to take good pic's I pull out my old 35mm with the 10,000$ atachments I have for it and take pic's how they are to be taken...... but hard to download 35mm onto the computer.....LOL

so as far as the digital camra stuff goes.... I point and press the button.. as for the most part digitals take what they think your looking at anyway....

:cheers:
