Added a seventh Jeep to the family

I had a seventh jeep follow me home today. In fact it was delivered by a massive forklift. To see a CJ5 lifted 10 feet in the air and carried over an apple tree and fence like a little Tonka toy was really impressive.

I now have two '68 CJ5s. I plan to the use new one's body as it is in great shape with the axles, frame, and windshield from the other to create a nice restored Jeep for running about. The "left overs" may get mixed with the remains of my '79 CJ project to make a short wheelbase wheeler.

The windshield and hardtop have been moved to the CJ6 ('79 CJ) project.

That's a terrific find! Where has it been all its life?
