Mail Jeep

Hey i was wondering why there is never a real demand for the old Mail Jeeps. Does anyone know of a good reason of why not to get one. They seem to be all over and cheep as dirt.

Just a guess but I think that most of them are 4x2? And none of them were built for off-road?

Thinking the same thing. They are all? (i think) 4x2's and most are right hand drive. That would be painful to deal with.

I don't know what engine they had in them though. That might be worth getting but my guess is that it is a 4.2 carburated so not hard to come by in the aftermarked world. The rear axle? Probably an AMC 20? I'm sure someone here will know.

1978 CJ7 I6, 2.5" dik cepek spring lift, 0.5" shackle lift, Cooper Discoverer S/T 33's, 1.25" Wheel Spacers.

Whats Next: Wide track swap, winch, new seats, eventually a 4.0 mpi swap from a 90's cherokee or wrangler.

All of the Mail Jeeps I have ever seen had limited slip Dana 44's with the springs mounted above the axle.

2 wheel drive,(for the most part),right hand drive,(takes a little to get use to), can't remove top. Most came with auto trans also. Still cool Jeep though. Would make a sweet ride to tow behind a motor home.

Seems like everyday is a Monday.
