Where in the hell were you guys when I lived in Annapolis? There were only a couple other built Jeeps out there, and they all belonged to the guys that worked at that shop in GB. You guys don't mess with that Maryland Mud Bugs crap do you>?

How long ago did you live in annapolis? & I think the Mud duds are a joke.

I moved back down here to TX about a year ago. Yeah, same sentiment on the Mudbugs. :rainbow: friggen goofballs playin in the mud on 31's. I can't tell you how many times I got pieces of paper on my Jeep asking me to show up on sunday morning to go MUDDING!!! I have a cabin in Shenendoa Valley, up in the mountians. They wanted me to pay to go on their little trip through the trails out there.... LOL

I aligned myself w/ the Nova jeepers, rather than the Mudbugs.
This is no longer drivable after a fuel injection fire ....but this is the rig I drove when I was living in G'town. You may know of me thru it.

ya know, I lived in NOVA for 4 years and got into Jeepin about the last 8 months or so that I lived there. I had no clue there was a NOVA Jeepers. I lived in Fairfax County, Lorton, traffic just got to me. Oh well, if I ever end up living up that way again I will know what to look for.
I don't think I ever saw you rig, I spent quite a bit of time in G'town for work too. I did see a FJ down there quite a bit that was built nice, though.

ya, we just started the NOVA Jeepers club this past October. Not too hardcore, but just basically a bunch of Jeep ppl in the same area.

Don't laugh at the color (cause that's why it was repainted.Computer resolution shows an undesirable color, although the truck was actually Dodge Canyon Copper ...)

But it was this color for alot longer....

Was it running and driving for $850???

What's the year (assuming pre-'92 from the rollbar)?? That makes the 2.5 TBI right?

They were there to cover up the crappiest set of used-to-be-white steelies that I used when I actually hit the trail. I couldn't dent that particular set, and they weighed who-knowsa-what!

They finally rusted thru... dammit!:rolleyes:

Those hubcaps hid the Ford axle Warn lockouts for the "sleeper" effect in accepting wheeling challenges. :flipoff2:

I think the caps and color kinda go together... And I'm sure they would look better going than coming!

Its a 91 2.5L MPI, and yes it runs with 205,000 miles but it does not drive.. there is no transmission or transfer case. the body is in unbeliveable shape ther are only a few dings on the hood & the front of the fenders wich is fine since it will be "flat fendered"
