    Been a while since we had a Beer thread...

    Thanks, Eric!! It's been a long time. I didn't realize how much I've missed working on the jeep and keeping up with all you guys until this year. I've been working hard on the jeep lately, and hope to have it running in time for the Nationals!!

The interior was shot, but the frame was good, the body was pretty good, and the engine ran strong! Here's a pic...
