Done did it again...

Well, buying my third jeep. I have put pictures up of the jeeps that I have had over the years. Someone told me this morning, "you're a glutton for punishment, I want one!" I can't wait to start tinkering on number three. Bare with me because I will be posting pics to get you guys opinions on what things to do to improve it.

The first jeep I had was a 1978 CJ7 with a AMC 304. If I remember correctly, it had performance headers with hornie head side pipes on it. Man it sounded great! Bought it for $3500 in 1997.

My second jeep was a 1979 CJ7 with a inline 258. It had a fiberglass body which made finding good grounds fun. Absolutely loved that jeep, but we found out we were expecting a little boy. Bought the jeep for $4,500 and sold it for $6,500 which was cheap.

This third jeep I will be picking it up tomorrow. It is a 1978 CJ7 with an AMC 304. I will post more details as soon as I can get it home and get to "tinkering'.

Let me know what you think of the brown mule. Ideas, suggestions, etc.

It has a 5000 lb. Warn winch that has been wired using a trailer pig tail that I will be taking out. I will find a hand controller for it and also clean the winch up.

More to come...

You should be kicking yourself for getting rid of such beautiful jeeps lol. Looks like the mule needs an LS1 swap, but I might be biased... They all look great. Good luck in your venture. Are you married? That seems to be a big factor in jeep builds haha. I somehow found a way for the better half to let the old CJ7 mistress live with us permanently.

***edit*** I really like that second blue CJ. That is a real eye catcher. What direction do you want to go with the mule?

Direction...not sure yet. Yes, I am married and my wife talked me out of buying a motorcycle because she would like us to get another Jeep.
