Re: Jeeper killed in Clayton Ok.
I have got a daily driver, stock 83 CJ-7 with a 3" body lift.. Eventually I do plan to make it a toy, but I feel that this is one of the safest vehicles I have ever owned.. I actually just had a near miss today on the way home from work when someone in the oncoming lane decided that there was enough room to turn left before I made it to the lights.. He was wrong.. I got hard on the brakes, and had to weave to the left a little to miss him, but I felt as in control, as I would have if it was a planned detour.. I didn't even trust my 89 Ford ranger (completely stock) that much...
It is funny that this thread came up just after I stated this same thing to a buddy of mine after the incident, but my condolences do got out to the family, and friends of the people mentioned above..
Just one last though.. My next major project after the engine swap is a full roll cage because as safe as it feels, you just never know..
Better safe then sorry..
