Jeep Farm? Karma?

Went out to see the 'Gimmie' jeeps the old guy offered for free...
I'm going to have to do a LOT more work for him to make this right!

You all wanted pictures, here they are...






I'm allergic to bee stings, and a nest of ground hornets kept me at a distance...
But they won't be there after the first frost!

One of the pair is a V-8 with auto,
The other is a I-6 with Dana 20.

The red jeep next to the boat is one he just uses to move the boat around with and is for sale.

The old tub is full of hornets! So I can't tell you much about it, except it's sitting on blocks, with axles under it, and it has an engine, but no radiator...
Couldn't determine what engine, just saw the fan...

Wow...

I'm stoked to see that just taking your time out of your trip to help someone with no plan of thanks in return and you happen to come across this. Good for you!

looks like a winch on the front of the brown one!

You wouldn't believe how may people I hang with think I'm going to 'Give' a jeep to them because I got them for cheap...

Don't know what they will sell for, but I do know the girlfriend wants one since the have hard tops and doors...
When women get involved....There goes a bunch of the fun of this!...

Anyway, there is a DJ out there also, in good shape as near as I can tell... It belongs to grandson who is 30 something now and hasn't touched it since he was in highschool...

I've been playing with the idea of an electric conversion for a jeep...
That may be a perfect candidate if I can get it right.

true! lots of roof space for solar panels to help extend range. put a bunch of batteries in the engine compartment and trunk space and put a false deck above them so you can still haul some stuff.....

that would be sweet

Check out the other thread I started on this 'Idea'...

Lot's of freed up room between the frame rails if you don't have all the drive line components...
I don't need a mud bogger, but I would like to have 4wd!

Smile Bank A and Bank B

Aaron, What I want you to do is go back to DAY ZERO and add up all of the minutes that you have spent working for free so that others could drive. Then I want a list of parts and equipment that you never got paid for so that others could drive. (Be sure to include all of those half-inch segments of solder that were used to solder up a pesky connection so someone could drive.) Then I want a list of all the posts that you have put up so that others could figure out their problems and, yes, ..... drive. As soon as you have all that, I'll help you add it up and we'll label it as: "Deposits To Bank A".
So then I'll want a list of everyone who has helped YOU when you were sitting beside the road with a froobled framis or when all of your fuel was exhausted or when you were stuck in mud up to your eyeballs. When you have all that data collected, I'll help you add it all up and we'll label it as: "Withdrawls From Bank B". Chances are about 119% that the withdrawls will be lower than deposits, but EVEN IF THEY WEREN'T, it's perfectly OK to deposit in Bank A and withdraw from Bank B. That's kind of how things work; and if you don't agonize about keeping track of whose alternator you used to get home or who has your trailer spare, it makes it better for everyone. Is there any doubt in your mind that you DESERVE a couple of free Jeeps?

By those standards a lot of us deserve a few free Jeeps. Aaron was just lucky enough to stumble into his. Where are yours? And mine?

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