Ok, We are excited about this upcoming and eventual move here in the next few weeks. Need a little help in the Jeep area if you please. Could you help out with some Auto Part stores names? I will be rebuilding my D-44 and will need a few things. Anyway, See there is a TSC there along with a locally owned store. NAPA is there. Any inputs or should I rely mostly on Mail Order other than traveling to Bangor or Portland? Thanks.

Sorry Mouse, but I'm not gonna be much help on this one. I have never ventured much beyond Bangor. Why are you re-building the 44? Damn things are mostly bullet proof. The last decent Jeep Dealer I'm familiar with is Charlies Jeep in Augusta. There may be a dealer further north, but after the whole bailout mess and Chrysler closing a load of dealerships, I'm not certain. I'm sure you can find a good shop in Presq;ue Isle, just ask some of the locals. 4x4 Groupbuy and Quadratec are my favorite mail order companies.

I always ask myself: Does it NEED to be said? Does it need to be said by ME? Does it need to be said by me RIGHT NOW? Then I log on to a forum and make an A$$ of myself! Getting old is great!

I did see a Smaller Jeep dealership up there.... Really small in comparison to the Mega-Dealerships we have down here. Anyway, the D44 is actually fine. I believe I have a Unit Bearing headed south and Most Defiatly the Double Cardin is squawking now. So, after a quick look underneath... the seals on the rear drive shaft are dried out too. To make a long story short here. I just decided to get everything right. I'm the second owner of the LJ and everything looks to be original as equipped from the factory. Just looking for a good solid baseline for my knowledge of the vehicle. We are pretty much all packed now and waiting for a buyer to come along. My tools are all put up and I'm going nuts!

Maine is like no other place on earth. The people are as nice as Minnesotans, as smart as New Yorkers, as warm and caring as Vermonters, generally as inclusive as Californians, and as practical as, well, Mainers. That last part goes a long way to making the other parts work.

it will not be like Texas, but it's gonna be fun. Rock on.

You are so right! Only met one Ugly person so far.... it was a Black Bear out on a field and it wasn't talking. He was a bruiser too! Anyway, Folks are really nice here. Very small community. The Dodge dealer here has a Jeeper on their mechanical staff too!

Thanks.... It's a bummer not have a garage to putter in or a home to call home.

Sounds like a plan. Still need to get the U-Joints done yet. Did manage to do a little off roading behind Hanson Lake looking at a vacant property back there.
