It has 166,000 original Kilometers and I am 3rd owner.

 

 

 

Best MJ story

 

My best MJ story is how 1 turned into 4 , I had to beg my wife to allow me to buy the first $50.00 wreck, now they just find me! If She knew the storm we started with the first She would of never let it happen Restoring them from Crapmanche status to something of quality makes me happy, I want to keep these icons on the road so as I find them I will keep saving them. My Wife Stephanie claimed the 88 as Hers as it was so mint and a dream to drive, I swear She enjoys it more over Her modded 2004 Rubicon

Holy carp man. What can I say. You seem to be very stricken with the Jeep bug. We all were introduced to you just last year, when you rescued an MJ that was more rust than Jeep, and fell head first into our abyss. Since then we've found out that you (and your wife) also have a offroad team for charity, helping collect shirts to make a quilt for the cause... Just awesome. Not only that, but in the midst of all this, you keep taking in MJ's destined for the scrapper. Your skills in body repair and fabrication are fantastic, and you do a great job of sharing them and the processes with the members. All of these things are what make you a great member, and this month's MJOTM. It's not just about the trucks. It's the guys behind them.

 

Congrats. :cheers:

Wow I am actually very honored to be Junes member especially since its my both month! Thank you for all the kind words and props, very nice to be recognized to say the least. The jeep bug bit me 7 or 8 years ago but I also stricken with 2.3 turbo ford fever and a nasty case of the vintage affliction,.. Oh and vw air cooled flu,.. :help:

 

In total we have amassed a fleet and I don't see myself getting any better, infact worse as I age,.. From Pintos to Comanches to vintage I love em all and I firmly believe the car doesn't know whats name is on it so to me all can be cool.
