Well i might have paid to much, but its what I wanted. i gave 3700 and drove it away. It ran fine I just have a bad case of A.D.D and needed something to do. Well I definitely got my work ahead of me. The 77 was my birth year so I kinda was partial to it

A fellow Mississippian!! I live in Louisville, KY now, but I grew up in Madison, MS and my whole family still lives there!!

I don't think 3700 is too much, it looks to be in good shape!

If you really want something, then you never pay too much. You hold it's true value in your heart and mind. It's what it's worth to you. I like it, I think it looks cool, these things are getting to be classics. Good luck with it!!!

so with today being fat tuesday my office was closed so i decided to work on the jeep. after about an hour or so of grinding on the frame the shop owner walks over and says "hey i have an industrial sand blaster if you want to use it" i almost crapped my pants. where was he 2 weeks ago when i started with the 4 1/2 grinder. has anyone used a good sandblaster to do everything including the tub?
