SUBSTANTIAL REWARD Offered!!!!!

When I looked out in the driveway I saw that someone stole the rest of my Jeep!

They were the cleanest of theives, too. There is no debris on the drive. I'm hurting. I will take donations from one and all. ]

Come to think of it, this is a golden opportunity for all members of this board to pull together! Everybody just send me your Jeep parts. Not all of them but enough to ........ well you know!

H8Monday can start with an engine and transmission and transfer case. Or maybe someone else can start with a 'rest of the stor... er, frame'.



Seriously, I just wanted to have some fun.

I am nearly though with the electrical project that was inspired by this board and have been thinking about the continuation of my long term Jeep plan. Jeepgod got me to thinking about all of the things I hadn't been thinking I could do and the list got longer so I decided to actually write it out and LIST it. (What a concept!) There are 42 items on the frame alone. I got to thinking about laying on my back with a grinder/acetylene/file/drill/etc., etc. and having to be back on the road the next day since this is my daily driver and I quailed at the thought.

I call Jeep. Yes, they will sell me a frame. $1800 plus tax. I asked what was the price for people who worked for a living and they said $1800 plus tax.

Called a salvage yard. No, they don't have one. I said where. They gave me a number and I called: the man said yes $500. I said GOOD! Where are you? He said Branson, Missouri. I thought: Jay Anger will surely go pick it up for me. Told the guy I'd call him back. Jay wasn't home so I called another local guy and he said yes, $300. I said GOOOOOOODDDDD!!!!!!!!
Went to look at it and it was from a burn job. Said, no thank you and called anothe guy local. He said yes $300. I said, is it ginked? is it burned? he said no and no and I went and looked and bought. And since I am going to slightly lengthen the frame front and rear (thanks again, jeepgod!) I also purchased some extra straight pieces of frame from another wreck so that I don't have to run around trying to match material and size and etc. Fifty more bucks.

Now I have a '91 frame with spare tube for modifications and many little spare pieces (complete set of tubes including fuel injection lines) and the factory service manual that gives me all of the measurements for perfect alignment. I now plan on building a fixture for working on it at bench top height. I hate being bent over and having my back kill me for a week.

it's gonna be funnnnnnn!!!!

Re: SUBSTANTIAL REWARD Offered!!!!!

I had a small bout with pneumonia last week - so I was kind of out of commission for a while. Sorry I missed the call! I need a REALLY good excuse not to do my homework now that bow season is over . . . you know, that's what is really crappy about going back to the university at my age - everyone EXPECTS me to be responsible! Geesh!

Because life has more meaning when you take it in 4lo.

Re: SUBSTANTIAL REWARD Offered!!!!!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Jay Anger.......at the risk of intruding where I'm not invited, I am going to implore you to NOT THINK that you are "over" the pneumonia. PN is a VERY sneaky ailment, and an exmarine friend that I STILL MISS is dead because we all thought he was OK and over his pneumonia. Be extremely careful. Listen to what your body might be telling you. And above all, don't think that you are over it when it may still be lingering.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] On another note: I gasped a little when I read SLN's post. A close friend DID lose a CJ-3B out of his driveway. He had owned the Jeep longer that he had been married and his kids are outa hi skool.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

Re: SUBSTANTIAL REWARD Offered!!!!!

Well, my body is telling me to hunt, fish, and Jeep; but -

Hunting season is over.
I don't own a boat, and my friend who owned one just moved to Florida.
The engine is out of the Jeep and awaiting parts at the machine shop.

Dang.

Guess I'll have to take your advice and come home after classes today and go back to bed! So thanks Dave - suddenly the three situations above don't seem as taxing! Oh and a special thanks to you since now I can say, "But Honey, Uncle Dave TOLD me to stay in bed today! He also implied that if you serve me steak and eggs in bed, I will feel much better!" I don't know if it will work or not, but I guess it is worth a try! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Jeepgod - if you were only 1000 miles closer . . . . Guess I'll have to go to Branson!

Re: SUBSTANTIAL REWARD Offered!!!!!

veeery interesting. I want to strech my YJ too. this is the best example of what I want to do that I have found.


Bobed CJ-8 with YJ rear proportions. Even with the TJ flares, the distance is proportional to a YJ from the flare to the rear body seem and from the flare to the door.
