Hey guys! I'm new here, but have been around the block before. ;) I run a forum that I started in 2000, it's a 4x4 community for the Rocky Mountain area, RME4x4.com.

Stan aka smfulle is a member on RME and he's been encouraging me to join the CJ2Apage.com and share my recent projects. My background is in rockcrawling, so I'm not a factory original, numbers-matching kinda guy... but I do love vintage steel and really enjoy getting an old vehicle back on the road, or off the road in this case!

I have a 2012 Wrangler JKU Rubicon that I've built up and we take all over the place, Rubicon, Moab, Baja, etc. I also have a CJ3A Crawler project that I'm building from the ground, up... it'd getting some pretty big mods; 8" body stretch, MB grill, 2A windshield, Vortec 4.3, 4L60e, Dana 300 and Toyota mini-truck axles. If I have the $$$, I'll run ORI shocks. I'm building my own frame and doing as much as I can myself. I also have a '48 CJ2A that has a Buick OddFire V6 and is more or less stock otherwise. I bought it needing work and have slowly repairing things and getting it back on the road.

I have build threads on RME for both CJ's that I'll share here over time, copy & pasting if you all don't mind.

I have been using this forum for quite some time for early-CJ tech and it's been very helpful! Hopefully I'll be able to participate more in the future & get more involved!

Here's my Crawler project... still a long way to go-





And my '48 CJ2A after some recent work this weekend....

Thank you! Are you in GJ? I live on the Redlands... I've seen someone driving a very clean CJ2A around town, would that be you?

Hey Greg, welcome to the 2Apage!  I'd like to invite you to bring your 2A and join us for the Fall Color Tours.  I realize that next week may be too short a notice, but perhaps next year.  You obviously have some excellent mechanical skills and I think many of our group would like to meet you and see what you've done.  So check out the events forum and I hope we'll see you here soon.
