I thought this one looked familiar.



Then I realized it was because I took the picture!

Here's the one that was parked behind it on an old farm on Maui, HI:

Thats a good find, and hopefully a happy ending for a good looking Renegade! Keep us posted with pics and details if they let you get more pics or take the Jeep home!

It's been there for YEARS, which is a shame, because even now it really doesn't look that bad, at least from the road.
Looking forward to the pics!

I have seen a few done...they look pretty neat, especially when converted to 4wd.

I believe this one was an old DJ converted/restored...

Great thread, love the pictures. I'm sure each one has a story to tell.

Jeep: A four-wheel drive vehicle of one-half- to one-and-one-half-ton capacity for reconnaissance or other army duty. A term applied to the bantam-cars, and occasionally to other motor vehicles (U.S.A.) in the Air Corps, the Link Trainer; in the armored forces, the ˝-ton command vehicle. Also referred to as "any small plane, helicopter, or gadget."

That '7 looks a little too nice to be stuck in a junkyard.
