That is actually at Barnwell Mountain off-road park near Gilmer Tx.

I'll make it up to Clayton one day.
But my main bucket list is Moab.

That thing is and could be so cool! The wheelbase looks really long.. update the suspension/springs and I bet it would ride really good!

Yes the CJ6s back then had the extra long wheel base I believe. Wish I had the space and time to work on it right now! Soon though.

Oh! My turn. 91 Renegade I just bought for a DD. Found out this afternoon that there isn't a single bushing in any of the leaf springs and one of them is even bent a little. Time for new springs I fear.

Pictures always show up here rotated to the left and I can't seem to fix it even by rotating the original to the right.

Just curious, what are y'all getting average MPG ? How's the towing, let's say a 12' trailer with a buggy.

I have a 2000 tj 4.0L with 4:11 gears after a 3.5" lift and 33x 12.5 tires I get 8 mpg on the hwy. I am sure many get better mpg but dropping the gears from 373 to 411 killed my mpg. I only tow a 14' john boat and it pulls it well.

I had to bump this as my Dad's old CJ is getting close to being complete. You can follow the progress in Post #s 102, 114 and 137 of this thread. To give you an idea, the first pick is how it started out.

The kind of rock crawling I do, it happens.
Just caved in the hood. It has a full cage that connects to the front bumper/hoop.
Bought a used hood for $50 and it’s good to go.

Iíve had a trailer queen CJ. Thought I wanted a street legal well built TJ. Turns out I like to wheel to hard to count on driving home, sold it and now Iím in limbo mode trying to figure out if I want to just go full tube chassis or not.
I have a square body in the garage Iíve threatened to 3link/4link boat side and bob

I know what you mean, I just sold my Jetski on here.
If you can afford it, tube is the way to go. I'm cheap and have a 4 linked TJ, on 1 tons and an Atlas case.
