Jeeps are like women, they're always better topless and dirty

If you're going the speed of light and your turn your headlights on, what happens?

I can't find a picture of one, but a 1969 CJ-5 with the "462" package is pretty rare.

spotted a Grand Cheorkee ZJ TSi edition, earlier this week. I had to look it up

thought it was a cool find.

From Wiki.
TSi (1997–1998)

1998 Grand Cherokee TSi


A sporty TSi model (1997–1999) briefly debuted, exterior features included single color body paneling, with lower indigo blue striping and TSi, accent similar to that found on the Eagle Talon model. TSi packages came equipped with 5 spoke 16-inch (410 mm) alloy wheels, 225/70R16 tires, sport tuned suspension and steering, perforated leather seats, and a premium sound system. The 4.0 litre I6 and the 5.2 litre V8 were the only two available engines in this package. The TSi was priced between the Laredo and the Limited.

Found this thread looking for something else entirely, but cool pics.

Here's my addition, not a concept, actually built and probably about as rare as anything Jeep ever made that wasn't a prototype: the 1984 Alaskan Postal Scrambler

The USPS ordered 230 Scramblers from AMC so the postal workers would have 4WD (all DJs were 4x2 stock), built with right-hand drive and using the all-metal full cab called the World Cab that was used on export Overlanders for Australia and Venezuela, but never used/sold in the US (along with a number of other odd features, floor-shifter for the T999, ebrake handle on the drivers' seat, no passenger seat-for mail tray, etc.)

I bought mine in Anchorage, fixed it up over 10 days and drove it back across the country to NC (where I lived at the time) in an 11 day trek with my brother.

Before I left Alaska, I was told that the Museum of Alaskan Transportation and Industry in Wasila, had one of these restored on display. I went there to check it out (very very cool) and told the folks at the museum that I'd bought one. They said they thought they had some of the paperwork on the one that was donated and went to check. They found all of the paperwork from the USPS announcement that detailed the history on these and gave a definitive answer on the number built (it had always been debated as to how many there were):

Here's a link to scans of the docs on my crappy web page: Alaska-NC Trek Pictures

Here's some of the story and pics from the fix up and drive home, a number of links are broken, but you get the idea:
Alaskan Postal Background

There was a sweet trail report I wrote up and sent in as I was driving home on rockcrawler.com, but the navigation is broken, you can see the first page though:
ROCKCRAWLER.com - Bringing Home the Postal CJ-8

And here's a couple pictures, what it looked like when I got it:


Here's what it looks like now:




Here's the one at the MATI:

^ Nice Postal! I saw one driving around the other day, I like the metal top. The Postal Scramblers show up once in a while in our Craigslist. This year's Alaska Meet and Greet is at the MATI, I'll be looking for the restored Scrambler when I head down there.

Cool, definitely check out the restored one, it's really slick. You can see a lot of the neat ways the postal workers would customize the tray and ****pit area to let them work more easily. I'm not sure that it's exactly the way every postal came from the factory (mine had a completely different step bumper that looked to be stock, but who knows), but it's a really nice restoration.

The MATI in general was just fascinating, the ingenuity of people to make the exploration of the state possible along with the technology for mining and all was just incredible. Still one of my favorite museums ever...

You should have restored it to the postal look with the paint and stripes and stuff, then lifted it and put the 35's on...

And you should put rockwells under yours with 60" tractor tires.

To each their own.

I wasn't trying to be a smart-***, I was saying I think it would have looked unique.

EDIT: Couldn't tell from the tone of text. All good in the hood.

I'm not the cool guy anywhere. Notice the smiley? I was just giving you crap man, no worries.

I wondered about a USPS look, but the body was in such shape that there was no point in painting it and frankly I didn't care enough to bother. I am more about having fun with it and knew my time to mess around would be limited and getting into anything too big would have taken forever. With no welding skills, fixing the body up would have been a long, slow, painful learning process. I didn't see the point in doing it up like a mail Jeep if it wasn't a nice paint job, otherwise it would look hack (well, more hack than doing what I did anyway).
