    Believe me, I understand. If you get half of what you want and half of what you need, being whipped isn't all that bad.

    Hey, good luck in Korea, I think you'll enjoy it. At least, I know I did.

      Hey Big Buro just north of you in Idaho, Jeeps are cheap picked up my flattie for 750.00 it was driving, and 90 wrangler for 1500.00 but no hardtop. I used to think the same about EFI engines until I put one in my 44 GPW I will never go back to a carb. I can go from our altitude of about 2800 feet to the Rubicon or Bear valley CA and still runs the same. Dont let those sensors scare ya, they will run even without them, not good, but good enough to get you off the trail, just take an extra computer and fuel pump

        believe it or not, I actually thought about swapping in fuel injection on my 66. My wallet got the better of me though. I don't disagree that the EFI works very well on most applications and especially when compared to the carburetor. BUT, I know what I have, I know how to fix it, and lord knows, I know how to make it run even in the worst of situations. You just can't do that with the computers and sensors and injectors, and...... All that. No thank you, I'll keep my little V6 with the carburetor.

                Not bad. It looks like you do good work. Is this a product of your own hands or did you have the work done? It appears that it's sitting in a shop of some kind. Hopefully, we'll get this meet and greet thing going and be able to compare notes.

                  I try to do everything myself I did need help with the bending of the the roll cage and some of the initial wiring for the EFI. The thing I am probably most proud of on the GPW is the reverse rotation, 1977 Ford pu dana 44 front axle thats in the rear of it, I used 1978 Scout rear housing ends, front spindles, hubs, rotors with GM backing plates and calipers, Moser axles and Mile Marker locking hubs all on the rear. almost all but axles and locking hubs out of the wrecking yard.
                  I probably cant make the meet and greet back east I just cant leave the buisness that many days this summer with everything else we have planned BUT I will be in California for the get together in July

                    HEATERS! they put heaters in jeeps now? Wow my 51 cj doesnt have one I have thought about trying to fit one in it sure would make it easier to see out the windshield on those early morning runs. I have always liked the looks of the flatfenders and I am verry happy to have spent my $300 wisely. I have a hole in my door from a limb, thats what I call a narrow trail and that was one of my first drives after welding all the holes up in the body and giving it a fresh coat of paint. As for the new jeeps I have never driven one but if anyone has one they want to give me I will let you all know how I like it.

                      For the Dailey Driver and off roading duties, my TJ.
                      For off roading only, my old CJ-5 was great. I still miss her.

                        My first and only Jeep is a TJ Wrangler;
                        But I've always wanted a Scrambler since the first time I saw one.
