Hi from Kittery

I am not a Jeep owner, I am working on a 53 Willys Jeep for my local VFW. I hope to gain some knowledge from everyone and show work in progress photos for anyone interested. As I figure out this forum stuff I will be adding photos. I have submitted several emails to OE Jeep customer service websites for assistance. The VFW has helped the local community in countless ways and I am just trying to give back. I assisted in a cannon rebuild for them and they want to use it in parades so they had a Jeep sitting around that needed help. I would like to get it running and able to pull the cannon.

I've always loved the old military Jeeps. I can't wait to see how the one you are working on turns out.

That's awesome! Welcome to the Forum. Lot's of great folks and ideas here! And don't forget "The Wave"!

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
