Again not a good average example. How far you driving?
I have to drive approx 70 miles round trip a day on the thruway in New York. So another thing I have to worry about is rust and frame rot

Boesch I have an 81 CJ7 with a small block Chevy 350 and a 3 speed transmission. I have a 20 mile drive one way to school. I'm averaging about 8 MPG's but it's a straight shot. It gets a little hard to handle once I get about 60 mpg due to the 33' swampers but she's a champ. I only take her to class to show her off. But my buddy has a 98 TJ with 33's but only a 4 cylinder with an automatic transmission, he gets about 13-14 highway.

duffer Nice pics, nice Jeep Lynn. Also, that's a little deeper water than I like to get into-----

lynn Love your B Duffer.

Looking back through this thread, it looks like my pics of the '71 are no longer visible since Multiply folded.
So here is a re-post of my pics of the '71...

Pre-paint, circa early 1997



A month after paint, at the first Jeep Jamboree ever held in PA


















I sold the '71 in 2007 to a guy who has become a good friend. Here is Don, continuing the abuse:

duffer A few pics of the B.






I bought it in 1972 and it has been in a flux field of some sort ever since. It's about to get version number 4 of the small block Chevy (1st was a 62 327, 2nd a 1970 LT1, and the 3rd a 381-and what is in the pictures).
