    I realized today that having two jeeps is like having two girlfriends. You can only be with one at a time but some how you have twice the headaches.

    I am thinking this applies to boats and motorcycles too [smiley=fun_84.gif]

    i had a jeep wrangler in college...it was awesome but constantly required $$...most of it due to my stupidity

    When will your other jeep be finished?

    Great restoration!

    Two jeeps, older Harley and a real old Beemer with a sidecar taught me one thing. "Don't force it, use a bigger hammer"

    At least FSU taught me enough common sense not to buy an overweight 25 HP 4 stroke. Where did you go besides Cracker High and CCNA boot camp?

    the jeeps cool, but would be better accepted round here if it really was a FORD, and that tag is just reeeealy degrading.

    Don't waste your time picking on FSU, UF or any other state school because I could care less and my pride comes from being an alumni not a football fan. My wife graduated from UF so it really does not matter to me. Frankly I will be happy if my kids go to community college or anywhere else.

    LR last time I saw you you drove a Jeep. [smiley=headshake.gif] If it ain't your vehicle the you might as well be posting [smiley=spam.gif] But if you must know I am a big Ford fan too. The only reason I did not get an old Bronco before I bought my Jeep was because Broncos were already worth too much money. CJ7 Jeeps run about 10k less for a vehicle in the same condition.

    Awesome jeep! Still ride like a bumpy ride? I'm happy with fish florida tag on muh f-150 with 33" tires and a bull bar but rather to have a jeep myself but can't tow a 5000lbs big toys....sucks.

    The Jeep looks great, however, I must admit that I would take an old classic bronco anyday of the week! You are very correct of the money issue with them, the jeeps are more affordable! I have had 4 classic broncos and would give just about anything for another. However, funds push more towards the jeeps. Great looking jeep Tom.

    That looks just like my 1986 CJ7 258 I had New till 1991 sold it to get the down payment on my first house.
