Got a new website up. Check out Misfit, my Postal!

Thanks to the help of Ricochet, I managed to get this website working properly tonight/morning. It is the story of Misfit, my Postal Jeep, from the time I bought it last year to the present.

Misfit the Postal Jeep

I hope you all enjoy it and have a few laughs at my expense!

I've got the Wrangler to go off-road with. The DJ is staying 2wd and short until the stock M-11 automatic goes out in it. Then maybe I'll dig up a T-18 and D-20 and put a little lift on it.

I just forwarded your page to my brother. He just picked up a 71 DJ to play around with.

Thats awesome. I'd put lockers front and rear and see what low gearing and low lift can do. Just like the old military jeeps.

Re: Got a new website up. Check out Misfit, my Postal!

Its 2wd, so there is no drive axle in the front. As for lockers...if it had an open carrier instead of the Trac-Lock carrier (most DJs had Trac-Lock from the factory) I would have already installed one of those EZ-Lockers I've got sitting around here.
I just used it to push/pull down 5 fairly small palm trees in my front yard, and then haul them into the back yard for landscaping... it gets pretty good traction, and has plenty of power!
