Thanks, Brian. Yeah, it's got the venerable in-line 6. They finally switched to a V6 in the 2007 and 2008 models, and everybody is lamenting the death of the I6. Wow, 325K miles is tremendous mileage. Kudos for your son!

I'm in southeast Kingman, near Hualapai Mountain (you can see it in the background in my first pic). Gimmee a holler next time you make it out this way. Your old windshield misses you!

I spent a lot of time in Jeeps in the Army, back in the 70's.
I have always been on the look out for just the right deal as well, just not looking hard enough I suppose.
Two mil vehicles I wanted were the Jeep & a Gama Goat
I always loved spraying on-coming targets in traffic with the output of the engine compartment bilge pump. A well timed pulse of the pump switch could paint a target vehicle with bilge sludge with no over spray on the ground ahead or behind the target.
Thank you sir. Interesting vehicle, that Gama Goat. Had I known about them before I got the Jeep.... ;-)
Actually, there's a wild animal park just outside of town called Keeper's of the Wild. They have an old Swiss Army vehicle they use for tours that looks quite similar to the Goat. Pretty awesome.

Ooohhh, an Unlimited Hardtop. I resisted the temptation to get an unlimited, and opted for the smaller standard body instead to be able to get into smaller places. We've still got the Suburban when we need to haul the whole family plus luggage. That blue one looks really clean. It's just crying for some more aggressive rubber though.

But that jeep looks fun - very nice, Joel - very nice indeed!
Thanks, Ted. Wind storms are part of the price you pay living out in the desert. I'd say we get one windstorm like that a week on the average. Although, this has been an especially windy spring. At least it doesn't rain all the time like it does back east.

Hmmm, maybe we'll start a JCR (Jeep Cowboy Reunion)
. So that's me and Ted, but who's the third?

Nothing runs like a Jeep.
My buddy has an '86 that is built to the hilt. I love riding in that thing. I can't wait to own my own ... when the time is right. Probably when I move south.
A Jeep AND a bike in the garage . . . LIFE IS GOOD!
And your girls are going to have a blast as well.
I was hoping you'd see this thread. Being an ATV man like you are, I knew
And yes, Life Is Good.
