Can you post some current pics?
I hope this message finds all of you safe, healthy and not too stir crazy with the pandemic lock-down. It has been two years since I posted any updates on El Jeepo because it has been that long since I’ve worked on it. Unfortunately, I’ve lost my mojo with this project. I’ve been hoping that after retiring, which I did at the end of 2018, that I would be reinvigorated and ready to get at it. It just hasn’t been the case.
With a lot of contemplation and angst, we’ve decided to move on from this awesome project. Yes, El Jeepo is for sale.
A lot of the major work has been completed but, make no mistake, there is still plenty of work to be done. The work is always in the details! The chassis is mostly done, just some smaller tubing work and finish welding for the cage. The engine/trans/transfer case are all mounted and done. The axles are done, drive shafts are in, carriers are Hi-9s and in. All axle shafts and drive slugs/locking hubs are still in boxes.
Major work yet to be done are the cooling, fuel and electronic systems. The dash needs to be re-installed. Fenders need to be built and the front group mounted. The seats and driver controls are in but the steering orbital valve and shafts need to be fab’d up and mounted.
I have just about all of the parts needed to finish this project minus raw materials, such as roll cage tubing, fuel tubing, exhaust tubing, wiring, etc.
I have over $40K invested in this project. I will consider offers in the $25K range. I am not interested in trades, I don’t need anything, especially another project! Please respond to this thread with questions, someone else might have the same question that I may be able to answer for the whole group.
