Talking Pix of my Money pit

Well here they are, not the best pics but snapped a few off it before I got it over to my freinds wharehouse to pull the engine.

<a href="http://www.atlantic.net/~sun1/Jeep.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.atlantic.net/~sun1/Jeep.jpg</a>

The facts on it:

Paid $300 for it hasnt been driven for 10 years was buried up to the tub in Georgia mud. The guy bought it for a hunting jeep and passed away. The beat up 4 banger actually has 63K miles on it but every hose on the thing was dry rotted to shreds.

Originally had a Hydrolic Ramesy wench (I think Ramsey) welded to the bumper had that torched off when I pulled the beat up front end off (A tree had fallen on it and had to be chainsawed off before I could pull it out)

The only bad rust on it is at the base of the tub area and under the window frame. Window frame isnt that bad not sure If I am going to replace it.

Picked up a good condition 258 for $150 that Im going to replace the 4banger with. Already have new Fenders/hood/Seats and more. Going to pull steering colum this weekend and have it sand balsted next week before I drop in new engine and start that and the Suspension work.

What ya think?

That's in so much better shape than some of the crap, er... Jeeps I get to fix!!

Seriously good deal you got going on there, bro. You are right about the money pit thing though. I can't think of anything else right now but my Jeeps. Of course, my wife is complaining about the deck rotting away, and the windows need repair, and the stone wall needs rebuilding, and the list goes on...

Looks like you are already in love, so enjoy the ride! Keep posting those pics!

Not done much serious off roading in 15 years Gun and never anything around here. Basically this is a new toy for me and something Ive always wanted to do but never had the time.

There is always the Ocala National Forest. Thats probably the closest serious trails I know of. Theres quite a few Jeep clubs around, Once I get this thing up and running I will get involved with them.
