Tell you what, I'll try to swing by outside the gate this weekend and get a pic next to the "Air Force Plant 44" sign (ya, google it and you can figure out where I work).
Check out some of the threads in the Military Pic Forum. Lots of cool military looking TJs there.

For it to be something with a historical significance must make it that much more special. Again, congrats on your accomplishment and good luck with any extras you decide to do.|

Well, after 9 long months and lots of visits by the brown truck, I now have a road worthy 71 year old Jeep. I can't really say that I am done because I still have a few more things I'd like to do to it. I'm thinking about making it into a radio Jeep. I really like the last picture of the engine when compaired to the one in the first post of this thread.
Here are the particulars:
Modern day modifications I have made:

I am feeling pretty good about this.

|Retroman1969||Man, that looks nice! I can almost see it and that trailer flying over rocks and ridges like the old army films.|

Okay guys, a couple of "teaser" shots here, I'm 99% done and have been itching to brag.
I've been pushing to get it running so I can go to a re-enactment/airshow next weekend. I was able to take it around the block today but still have some work to do. I can't get the brake lights to work and have some other brackets and connections to make. If all goes well, I'll try to post some pics in a week so you can see the truly "finished" product.
Here it is parked to my wife's less than a year old Ford and you can see Sarge in the background on the second.
Now that I think of it, I may need to change the names of the Jeeps.

That is looking fantastic! It looks "right".
I agree with the poster that mentioned his frustration in seeing a couple of vintage jeeps going to waste by someone inexplicably unwilling to sell them. Sadly common in my dealings with vintage vehicles over the years.
Eugene is a success story.
Best of luck! I can sympathize with "setbacks" as you'll see from the updates in my thread.

|ElectricJay||Looks amazing! Great job!|

|Atise||Holy. You are doing a amazing job on that jeep. Good job|
