Saw this in Lima, Peru

Just got back from South America and saw this Jeep in Lima, it was parked behind a fence at an apartment building. That's all I can tell you about it, thought it was neat and thought I'd share!

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Soles in Peru, 3 to a buck so yeah I'd give them a 1000 soles for it

Saw a lot of old cars there, some real classics in really great shape, some of the old trucks I'd love to have..

Then there were things like this, Armored car, lots of them along with men with machine guns, the old car that I have no idea the make or model, and then the governments armored cars, with machine guns, darn lady stepped into my shot, lots of other guys around with AK's so I didn't want to appear to be taking shots of the armor around the Governers Mansion in Lima...

i'm gonna hi jack your thread since i don't have your email or anything.

i rebuilt the top end, valve job, water pump, motor mounts, fixed the exhaust manifold, finished the exhaust, new radiator, new oxygen sensor. fixed up the inside, replaced horn button, trim bezel, and radio. installed full gauge cluster, trans cooler and temp gauge, factory bumper w/ fog lights and protectors, installed fog light switch and wiring w/ factory harness. put in a rear view mirror w/ map lights. drop in factory bedliner, front tow hooks and skid plate, all factory. 30" mud terrains i got on trade for some work. and obviously did some painting here and there.







thought i had some pics of the interior, but not handy, you get the idea. i still haven't spent more than i paid for it, i got lots of parts for free, or cheap. obviously if i had to pay for parts and labor it would have been insane, its a great little truck, its got a good home, i love that thing.
