    Jeeps and guns go together like Oreos and milk. I'm wondering how many other Jeep owners/enthusiasts are here at TFF? Post up!

    I grew up with my 7-slotted friends. Here is a pic of my current (4th) Jeep, an '06 TJ. If you are a Jeeper, post a pic of a current/past/family/friends' Jeep!

    Nice, Glen! I'd have to hang on to that one. Truly a classic flat-fender.

    Thanks
    134L flat head
    Husky overdrive
    11" brakes
    Runs great.
    Just does not fit the needs any more.
    I have 2 Can Am atvs and don't use the Willys any more.

    i've always wanted a WWII Willy's Jeep, preferably in the original army coloring. the only problem would probably be keeping it in running condition and gas mileage. any way i could fix one up so it's good(or at least better) on gas?

    Man, you just don't see flatties anymore. I wish I had some extra cash, I'd love to give it a new home.

    Hang on to that XJ! It's hard to find one that has not been beat on. I had a '87 that took many undeserved beatings:D. I've got alot of pictures of that thing in places it should not be. It always got out and got me home. I wish I would have kept it.

    320k on that thing. It has some 'character marks' on it but not bad and no rust under the fender flares like most. I've had to do a lot to it over time but nothing more major than starter/alternator/computer/shocks etc. I do need to work on the interior, her dog got mad when she left her in there for about 20 minutes so ate the sun visors...

    I have TWO kids, that's right, TWO JEEPS. The oldest one, which happens to be for sale, is a 1953 vintage M38A1, a complete frame-off restoration professionally done by International Repo Depot, new everything on it top to bottom, along with an M100 trailer, also complete restoration. Comes with radios, dummy .50 BMG, all cables etc for the electronics.

    Also have a 1995 Wrangler that goes everywhere a mule can go. Lots of fun but NOT for sale. :D

    Aren't I the lucky one.

    Here she is, '93 ZJ, First year of the Grand Cherokee. This ones a Laredo with a 5.2L V8, factory spec'd at 220 horse. Gonna order some ProtoFab bumpers for her and have the windows tinted. Other than that im just gonna drive.. Oh yeah, and keep good mud tires on it. A 4X4 is worthless if the treads cant grip the ground.

    Opposite of the cool old Jeeps. Picked up a '12 Rubicon three months ago. Added a LoD front bumper and Warn winch. So for I'm loving it.

    Not my first Jeep though. I had a '74 CJ-5 and a '68 Wagoneer. Really missed the CJ over the years and picked up the Rubi as my mid life crisis vehicle.

    1946 Willys...."NellyBelle", named after Pat Brady's Jeep on the "Roy Rogers TV Show". These were produced after the war for agriculture use because of the shortage of farm tractors after WWII. Features a PTO for running equipment and front weights for added traction.

    Now it's used for parades and special events....seated in the front: Roger Staubach (QB Dallas Cowboys), rear: Nick Lowrey (kicker, KC Chiefs).
