Re: Mail delivery Jeeps
I've got a Postal Jeep, and have had a few people from the Postal Jeep board ask me when I will get it running smooth and new floorboards put in because they want to buy it for $1000-1500! Imagine, getting out of a vehichle as much as you put in it! I'm sick of tinkering with it now though, so it's going into the shop so that it will (hopefully) be running and driving like a champ to go to Ocala for the Labor Day weekend. (If it gives me too much trouble I've got the 258 in my Wrangler that will drop right in [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img])
They don't drive fast very well though. Sure, with a tiny, leightwieght vehihcle and a 3.8L I-6 you can do 90-100mph (well tuned, of course), but it would take someone with balls bigger than their brains to do it. From what I've heard, 60 is about the highest relatively safe speed you can maintain in these rigs.
