Nice waggy. I wouldn't mind having one myself, but I've got my LJ.

As far as a CB goes you can get a Wilson Mag Mount antenna. No holes or anything if you do it right. If you put the antenna on the roof you'll have a pretty good ground plane too. That will cover some distance.

You could also do what we used to do when we convoyed to Hershey every year (a group of 4 familys totaling 17 people). We all had CBs with massive magnetic mount CBs. They looked pretty funny on 1 Chrysler LeBaron, 1 Dodge Spirit, 1 Chevy Venture, and one Dodge 2500 Van.

Just wired in a new switch for the tailgate window. Not the ideal switch, but it'll work for now until i can find a nicer one, or an oem one.

Spring over the *****.



Well, actually, it's fine the way it is. I just have some weird obsession with spring over on every leaf sprung vehicle.

I do like the color and the one strip of the wooden type paneling.

Marn, if you decide to upgrade the stereo, before you cut the dash up to fit a DIN style stereo check out vintage vibes classic car stereo They make stereos, that fit the opening with new controls for MP3, and remote CD players. Very cool. I found them the day after I cut the dash on my ford for a stereo. Now I am looking for a dash to fix my ford and go to vintage vibes to make it look original.

Nice!!! Girl needs one for her nova.

I dont feel like putting a pricey system in though, seeing as i dont lock the doors.

Picked up a temporary movement permit for the jeep today, seeing as the PO took the plates.

So, I guess I'm official now, too....
