Ruger wanted to come. 
I told him he had to stay. 

Leaving the farm. 

I stopped and picked up my Dad on the way to get the jeep. 
Short 20 miles and we were at the jeepBig smile

 With a really dead battery and a tank full of old gas,
I decided it would be quicker to winch it on the trailer.

I’m happy to find all three tags in place. 
I looked up the # and confirmed it’s a 1948. 


The big tag is quite corroded Ouch
What’s a good way to clean these??

This jeep has a the cleanest frame horns of any jeep on the farm, I don’t see any of the typical crack in the cross member, which tells me the jeep hasn’t seen heavy use.  

Also happy to score a license plate bracket. 

Also something I’ve never had.....Shocked
Now that’s SUPERClap

Muley said you jumped the snake to get that Jeep. I think he thinks all jeeps on his side are supposed to be his. LOL

Great score Ben! Always room for more and using your son as a excuse sounds normal to me. In about 10 years he'll be ready to try it. (On the farm). 


By then you'll have to go electric Cry  

How's dad's GPW?
