Texapple welcome to WF
Let me blow your hair back: Texas native, grew up in Christoval (all my people still in the area)!!! Alas, I'm languishing on the East Coast, however this is where I aquired the "sickness" and there's no turning back
Looks like you have lots to share, glad to have you with us.

Howdy ya'll,

New to the board, old to the jeep game. Got my first jeep at 17, it was a 72 Jeepster Commando, yellow with removeable white top. Loved that jeep, until I was hit broadside by a drunk and rolled it. Rebuilt it with leaf over axles lift (homemade) and a full cage, and soft top from a FJ-40 (lot's of mods there :-) Owned 2 1978 CJ-5, (258 and 304) drove one (258) cross country twice (CT to CA and CA to TX to LA where I shipped it to Panama) Had them both in Panama, highly modified. Owned two XJ's (88 still in Montana and 99 here in Texas, both 4.0's/stock/family transporters) and one YJ (2.5 w/5 spd) while stationed in Guam. Currently own a 97 2.5 TJ (it's my wifes, but I do all the maint). The most recent acquisition was a Texas ranch Jeep I bought off Ebay. I highly not recommend buying a Texas ranch jeep off Ebay. I'm a fairly capable mech, and this thing has been the near death of me. Although now that it's running correctly, it's a joy. The best and most capable stock jeep I've ever owned. Also owned a 43 MB project that I bought in 1992. It's still somewhere in Montana, Butte, I think. Stock except for warn 2 blade locking hubs. Had dreams of swapping a 500ci caddy into that one.

Anyhow, that's it in a nutshell. Oh yeah, also owned a FJ40 that I drove cross country from CA to CT in 84. That was a hoot. Lot's of off roading experience care of the military in the US, Europe, Africa, South/Central America, and Pacific.
