No idea, just stumbled on the pics. I'd sure love to have a flatbed version of the first one to move my other projects around.

"A little work".

You're not giving yourself enuf credit...........That's just cool!





This fine Jeep has to have more of a story......................details man, details.

Like how did you come up with ID # ? I understand the "84CJ7" but what about the first part?

No - they were lost in a hard drive crash. The jeep was in really bad shape - the only body part I could resuscitate was the front grille. I was able to use the chassis, engine block, axles and overdrive. The rest was begged, borrowed or stolen.
They are relatively easy vehicles to restore because there is no interioir as such - just the seat covers. Finding parts is the challenge.
