Dan in Nampa:
Just saw your post. I live in Boise, jeep stays in McCall. I probably won't change out the gears. The jeep gets me where I want to get in McCall--fishing, hiking, sightseeing.
Had carb rebuilt, and new heater fan (which died). Now I'm ready for winter (and scraping ice from inside, as I've read about)!
My jeep has Acme hard top and doors. I'm looking for locks for the doors, was referred to Austin ( I think the company is), sent them a photo, but no luck.
Do you belong to jeep club in the valley?
