Update,
I went home a little bit ago, and unloaded the CJ from the trailer. It is sitting under the shed roof, and ready for a cover. I'm thinking I will set the hardtop from my CJ on it so as to keep the dust out. Mine doesn't get used hardly at all, so no big deal. Also, I noticed the valve cover has openings that need sealed. I will tape them up to keep the dust out of the engine the best I can.

Once I get more time, I will jack her up and put blocks under the axles so the springs don't sag over time. The front pumpkin is open and needs sealed up, but other than that she should be fine for 3 years.

Pictures to come.

Made the final leg of the CJ Express Monday and got to meet Eric(BioTex), and his friend Robert.
I learned one thing in this journey, I ain't as young as I used to be...
Ran into some pretty strong wind in Lordsburg.
I wondered why I had to tach up to 3K to make 75 MPH... Anyway here are a few pictures: God bless.

More amateur photos...

A couple of more and the trip home.
First picture has Robert on the left and Eric(BioTex) on the right cinching down the chain boomer.
Fourth picture is the Rio Grande as taken through my window.
Home Monday night, 900+ miles round trip from Buckeye,AZ to Las Cruces, NM. I
have met some really fine folks during this little excursion.
Gil, I have no doubt your CJ will be closer to done than you think when you get state side.
I need a nap...

To everyone who has made this possible (I'd name everyone in a list, but I think there is a character limit on posts, it's that long) THANK YOU SO MUCH! I could have never asked for a nicer group of people to meet. Hopefully in April after I graduate and before I leave for Okinawa, I'll be able to meet up with BioTex and buy him a beer, it's the least I can do!)

I think it is just awesome that this all came together the way it did and of the outcome.

It leads me to believe that there ARE still people in this world willing to help each other out. Maybe it's just a Jeep thing, maybe it's not.

With that said: Anyone want to hook up a veteran (Air Force) with a nice Dana 44 rear for his Scrambler?



We could do a coast to coast write up on this one......

So THAT'S what Eric looks like!! Nice to have a face with the name...


Great effort. What a blessing! Proud of my Jeep friends!

The Rio Grande doesn't look so grand. Is that normal?? I thought it was bad over here! Agree the scenery is beautiful. Is that Arizona in the first pic with rocky hillside? That's cool.

The first picture is a rest stop outside of Benson, AZ called Texas Canyon. Great big boulders all over the place. It is usually my first pit stop leaving Tucson, because as we all know, you never buy coffee, you just rent it...
The Rio Grande was lower than the last time I was over that way, so New Mexico is suffering from the same drought that the rest of the west is under. Once the snow starts melting up in Colorado we'll see lots more water down stream. God bless.

I didn't know you were an AF Vet also.
BTW. I felt like I was a hero for donating a couple of parts I wasn't using to a few Border agents/service members/cops. You guys make me look like a piker. Good show on all of you. As somebody else pointed out, be proud of yourselves. I'm truly proud to be a small, newbie, part of this crew, and not have been thrown off here. Yet!
Had I found this forum earlier, I would not have given my jeep up to my Bro, even though I luvs him to death...and it wouldn't have let it sit for the last 7 years w/a bad frame. I learn something here everyday. I hope to give back more than I've recieved here someday.
