Btw, just noticed a couple little pieces of 3 wheeled nostalgia in your garage. Ive been wanting to track down an old Honda ATC like what I started riding on and restore it, but I cant keep up with my projects as is.

What kinda decal is that on your fenders? Looks neat.

Negative. I love those wheels and the tires are practically new. If I could, I would run the Eccos with the new tires, but the backspacing is different, I think. They will be put up in my attic storage. Last time I sold a set of my favorite Jeep wheels, I regretted it!

Profit.
I watched my friend do exactly that on the alignment rack! I now know how to do it myself...

The decal was an eBay find, I liked the AMC/Jeep logo for old skool goodness!
As for the ATC70, that's for sale, too bad you live so far away! I also have the mid 80's Manco Rustler deathtrap, and an 87 TRX250.

I used to have an '85 trx250 just like that, I recall it having an odd trailing arm style IFS on it. I learned to ride on '80's era Honda ATV's, always good memories when I see pics of em. One of these days Ill have to track down another just to have.

Id like to put some decal there myself, just dont know what. Really like the idea of incorporating the AMC into it since that is the XJ's origins and all.

Exactly why I did that one. Find it on eBay, I think it will look good on your XJ! The other option was a $35 dealer installed "trail rated" badge from the newer Jeeps on the drivers fender.

You should buy this ATC70, I can arrange shipping down to Kentucky...

Thanks, Ill check that out.

And haha on the ATC. My two main hobbies are Jeeps and guns. There is no money left after that.

Ive still got the ATC110 i started on sitting at my grandfathers barn. Perhaps I can dig it out and restore it one day. But that requires time and I dont have much of that either haha.
