Thanks so much! It has been unseasonably bitter cold this winter. the jeep has been sitting in the barn since thanksgiving, and I am itching for top down weather(no rain and 45+ degrees) I got some metal bent up over the winter for auxilary light guards, and a high lift mount. I will be working on that in april. still havent found an mb/gpw grill to graft into the front yet.
I did however pull it out of the barn sunday, and I did a few donuts in the snowy front yard. we shot some video. once I post it to youtube, I will post a link. the digital camo looked good in the snow.

I never served but I have various friends and relitives that are or did. I lost 2 great uncles in WWII (I am an old fart). the unit markings are a tribute to all of them.
remember to tuck and roll when you land!!

Hey I hope you don't mind, I found an old M38 A1 grill, and bolted it on to see what it looks like. Pretty good fit. Sorry, didn't have time to paint it, but I did manage to get most of the dents out with bondo... -jake

that looks pretty neat, even looks like bubba put a good rough coat of bondo on it.
I have located a 9 slot grill for an afordable price, not yet in my possetion, but soon I hope. I just drove the jeep home out of storage last night. I will be working on the fender mounted blackout light, two driving lights on the bumper and a backup light on the rear bumper. I am antisipating ALOT of work to graft the 9 slot in due to the size. but I will start as soon as it is in my gready little hands.
I just learned how to tig weld, but unfortunatly do not have $2,500 for a tig welder, so I will be migwelding and doing ALOT of grinding.
I will keep you posted!

I always thought the "H" in IMHO stood for honest.

Anyway. Nice jeep. There are a couple pretty cool TJs on here with an army look. If you haven't seen this one yet, check it out. Might get some ideas. Although, I think this guy has some more money to throw at his jeep. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...566265&page=11

jake's a great guy. he posted the photoshop picture of mine with a m38 grille added, and yes he has put alot of money into his jeep. he has spent more on mods to his jeep than I have in my jeep and mods. he has alot of time effort and money in his jeep and it shows!!! many people put a ton of money into ther jeeps. if you have it to spend why not?
I used to have a ton of toys and disposable income. but my auto engineering job was exported to India, and here in michigan we lead the nation with over 12% unemployment, and 2-4 forclosed homes on every street. I pride myself on what I have done to my jeep with next to no money. but I have been doing jeeps for 15 years so that makes it easier. I also have alot of tools and know how to use them.
I cant wait to see what Jake comes up with for a retro dash. all I plan on doing is glueing some dig cam material to my airbag covers and maybe puting some repro WWII jeep data plates on my glove gox.

Allright Fflintstone, this should motivate you to get things done...


GPW 9 slot grill, fender mounted blackout light, and a couple spot lights on the bumper. I have a lot of time on my hands tonight.


Just wanted to see what your custom tow bar would look like attached with the new grill. Nice.

I hope to have the real 9 slot in there within a month. thaks for the images Jake! and your wheeling photos look cool! I did some donuts in the snow in the front yard a few weeks ago. I am going to load a video up to youtube and post it.

thanks, I have done some more small things, but I am waiting to post pics till I have the blackout light mounted on the fender.
grafting the WWII jeep 9 slot grille will take alot more work due to the massive amounts of dents and dings in the 65 year old veteran.

Hey its comming along real nice, I really like the look of the 9 slot grill. What are you doing with your old grill when you get the new one? Pm me if your interested in selling yours.
I would still love to tackle a hood vent like you made on yours. Great work.

I will be mearging the two together, so ther will be nothing to sell, unfortunatly, as I could use some bucks for another mod.
