“Wow this is cool – what kind of Jeep is this exactly? From Europe? South America? Is this Korean war era? Falkland Islands? Northern Ireland? These are the kinds of questions I get which is a lot of fun. If you don’t like attention, this is not the Jeep for you.

It started out as a retired postal Jeep (DJ5). I’ve since extensively modified it to be of roughly the same dimensions as the rare Willys CJ6. Frame stretched 18” with lots of hand fabricated body modifications, roll bars, etc. Custom safari top (the only top), new seats & seatbelts, Bluetooth stereo. I tossed the tired 4-banger and swapped in a stout Ford 302 & C4 automatic. Engine has 351 heads, 4bbl, new electronic distributor, water pump, radiator, exhaust manifolds, battery, etc. etc. Fairly aggressive cam, sounds great. Way more motor than this light truck needs, but it is fun.

3” suspension lift with new steel rims and reproduction military tires from Coker. Manual brakes and steering. This is NOT 4×4. 2-wheel drive, with positrac rear axle like all postal Jeeps. Note it is also right-hand drive, which is easier to get used to than you think. If you’ve ever driven a boat, those are all right hand drive.

Not an off-roader but something fun to cruise around with the family in. Lots more room inside than a CJ5 or CJ7.

I like toys so will consider trades up or down (this plus or minus cash) for other Jeeps or maybe full-size broncos. CJ, YJ, TJ maybe, but no JKs. Absolutely no ATVs, bikes, boats.”

    Having previously owned a ‘69 DJ-5A, as well as a ‘75 CJ-6, this is pretty well done.
