I got this CJ6 as a gift/dowry from my father in law. He bought it from a guy in Arkansas in 1995 and started a ground up restoration that was short lived. He rebuild the axles, engine, transfer case and transmission and re-did the frame. Then it sat for about 10 years in his garage and later moved to his driveway until I came along, married his daughter and became legal heir to it (he asked me to get the POS out of his driveway).
I gladly did. This has been my first major rebuild. I drug it out to Ft Carson Colorado where I was stationed at the time and started working on it, off and on between field time and deployment to Iraq. It continued, to my wife's chagrin, through PCS moves to Ft. Benning, GA; then drug to Ft Irwin, CA, where it actually got utilized pretty extensively and got a new coat of paint; then to Ft. Eustis, VA where the engine is currently in pieces in my garage, slowly getting rebuilt.
Bottom line, I'm still glad I took on the chore of dragging this turd across the country. Someday it will be worth it.
