Finally got a Jeep!!

It isn't much but its still a Jeep. Needs some work to pass VA inspection but I will get it there. I really want to make it legal so I can enjoy the open top before winter. It has sat for the last 2 years and some rust has collected in random places. The engine was rebuilt 20K miles ago.

It looks cool, congrats on the Jeep. I'm glad you want to use it rather than letting it become another rust bucket.

from one newb to another, welcome to WF!!

They are all I had and the e-brake doesn't work. I also don't want it to roll back into the propane tank filler for my house.

Thanks for all the welcomes everybody!!! I have a lot to learn about these monsters but I'm sure I will have fun in the process.

Levinoss- I wasn't too sure about the color when I bought it but its growing on me.

Debruins- For the most part the Jeep is in good shape but it has some rust issues I need to tend to.

Josh

Nice Jeep! And welcome...
Just a few points to touch on since you're new here:

1. If you didn't know anything about Jeeps before...You will.
2. If you didn't smoke and cuss...You will.
3. If you weren't an insomniac...You will be.
4. Watch out for Tiny Terror... She's mean and she makes boys cry.
5. If Scout tries to "Invite you over the see the kitchen!"...Run like the wind!
6. Tuesday is Steak Night. Happy hour is from 4 to 6pm.
7. There is absolutely NO parking in the RED zone. You will be towed.
8. Never-Never listen to a thing I'm saying.
9. Never come between either two women or dogs fighting...You'll get torn to shreds on both counts.
10. Lastly... Have fun and enjoy yourself! These are all really great people!
