UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3200.

A rare combination of a Lefty and a Trencher. If you go to see it, don’t forget to visit Carhenge, a place I’ve yet to visit.

    Dave……..great advice on Carhenge………went out west to pick up an old truck and motorcycle 10 yrs. ago. It was right on my route into the ranch with my “stuff”. Well worth a stop

    Imagine that……..I have actually been to a place that you guys have not !!

    Hi Dave, thanks for all the great info on this site. It has become my “go to site” for anything Jeep! A friend of mine found this CJ-2A with trencher on Craigslist over this past weekend. I struck a deal with Pete, the seller, and have purchased it to go in the collection of Jeeps I have in Sturgis.

    Congrats on the purchase Don and thanks for the update. Hopefully, it’s not too long before we can go through Sturgis. Just have to get my wife healed up (We were back in the ER last night and surgery this morning … 2020 can’t get over too soon).

    – Dave

    Thanks Dave and so sorry to hear about your wife. Hope she is doing better. Last spring you mentioned of making a trip to Minnesota which made me suspicious of your possible travels to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester? Last spring my wife was at Mayo for 5 weeks receiving cancer treatment. Best wishes to you and your wife.

    Today I made the 3 hour trip to get the CJ2 and pleased to report that it is in better condition than the pictures showed. It’s seems to be complete and considering the age and use, I’m really pleased to provided it a new home.

    Please stay in touch and I look forward to meeting you and your wife.

    Thanks Don … she spent a second night in the hospital; the infection doesn’t seem to have been completely subdued by antibiotics yet, as one of her eyes is nearly swollen shut now. The doc has mentioned that she *might* have some permanent facial damage, so things are still up in the air as I write this.

    Last Spring’s trip to MN was to get a puppy to replace my wife’s aging PTSD dog named Zollie. Zollie has been an excellent PTSD dog for my wife, one she picked up while living in Nebraska (and before meeting me). The breed (Sheranian) is near impossible to find in the Western US, so to prepare another PTSD dog while Zollie was still alive, we decided to go with the same breed; MN was the closest place to get one. However, our plan went awry when the new pup bonded heavily with me (oops). Moreover, our new pup seemed to need a companion dog far more than our first. So, last month we completed a second quick trip to MN to get a second young Sheranian from the same parents, but different litter. Those two young female dogs have bonded well and occupy each others time, though neither one will likely make a good PTSD dog. But, they are cute, smart dogs and easy for my wife to handle (she can’t physically manage a big dog any more).

    Glad to hear the jeep looked better than in the pics. That’s always a pleasant surprise, as it is so often the reverse.

    One way or another, we’ll make it there 🙂
