Is this the right forum now?

Well I got a new jeep, I noticed a few changes in 31 years.
Still got to keep the 'ol CJ5 though




Might run a 3rd row seating.


Some option:
Auto with 3.73 gears
Power group Windows, doors etc
Heavy Duty Suspension, Gas Shocks what not
17"rims with 31" tires.

Thing that remain the same:
Headlight S*ck
Jumpy ride
Can't see a traffic light.
No inside hood release.
18 mpg
mud on the doors
Sun on my bald spot

Things different:
Where is the throttle cable?
What are these curly things on my axles.
a Radio!
Why does everything take a 1/4 second to happen when I throw a switch?
What happened to the oil and volt gauges?
2 trip odometers?
Short engine

From the looks of it, you might be better off on the full-size board.

I REALLY like the new Rubicons, It's the payment book that comes with them I could do without!

Looks great John! That should keep Mama and the family happy while you still get your little toy!

Be careful when you park it next to a yellow Hummer - you could end up taking the wrong one home.

Man, that's cold! Am I going to have to give you an infraction?

John, I had the same problem, so I bent up a little piece of 430 SS and stuck it to the dash with foam mounting tape. Magnets hold small things to it just fine.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

Wosers... that new job's being real good to you. That's one nice Jeep.. but what's up with that back-back seat?

So... do you still have those fiberglass doors?
