Welcome Carson. Sounds like you have some very special family history in your jeep... which is very cool. Please post some pics of it at some point... and they don't need to be pretty.

to many jeeps, parts, and accessories to list here, but apparently enough to keep me in trouble with my wife.

The story of my jeep is kinda odd. It has been in my family since before my time. My great grandpa (Darwin) got it for pulling a small trailer "i think" and to just mess around in the mountains with. He put a Chevy V8 in and i think also plowed snow with it for a while. Then he died in 99 and it sat for maybe 9 years in a shop. Someone replaced the gas tank at a point in time and other than that it had nothing done with it. In 2015 my grandma got it passed down to her. They fixed the master cylinder for the brakes, got it a new clutch cable and had it running. In 2019 they passed it down to me because i am pretty much the only mechanic in my family. it had lots "and still does" of problems that needed to be gone. The carb was messed up, we had to adgust the clutch and many more. this year "2020" i have taken the roof that overhung off the sides and had no doors off. i have fixed a slave cylinder and replaced the carb and other things. It still is nowhere close to being driveable. the plugs are bad and carb is still out of adjustmentAngry. but there is lots of time to finish my many problems.Smile
