Sad task ahead, cutting up an old CJ
She once was a proud Golden Eagle but was reduced to a pile of twisted scrap iron on a drunken night of fun by its previous owner. The jeep caught a tree stump on a long down hill ride and landed in a creek after going end over end and a couple of rolls. Out of the 4 people in the jeep, one was hurt (not badly) and the others were just beat up a little. Another tub and frame was bought and this jeep was pretty much stripped of anything that was not bent or broken to rebuild the new jeep. I bought this rebuilt jeep and got what was left of the old jeep in the deal. A friend of mine was kind enough to let me store this old jeep on his land but is moving and the jeep has to go. I went out to take a look at the jeep the other day to see if there was any chance to save it but there is just too much damage. I have no title or vin plate (went to the rebuilt jeep) so I am just going to have to cut it up and haul it to the scrap yard. I hate like hell doing it but sometimes even a tough old CJ has to be put down...sniff [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
BTW, I have the driver's side hard door that somehow survived the crash if anyone needs one.
