*Update*

Hey JF, its been awhile.

Winter is on its way out the door here so you know what that means!

Ive started on some body work today and called to get bids for a new 258. Hopefully mine isnt in too bad of shape so maybe i can save it. Any word on how much I should be expecting?

On a personal level, My father passed away in March, so now the jeep is a tribute to him. Im moving to North Carolina in a few months and will be pulling a U-haul with the jeep. Any advice?

how big of a uhaul? i think the general consensus is not to tow with the short wheel base of a cj. i have towed a small trailer like a 6x 4 with a 4 wheeler on it but thats it and it was only for about 40 miles. it did fine but i was only towing 400 lbs.
