I have been bombing around my property and the neighborhood for a week and fixing everything that comes up. Now it is road or trail ready. I have 2 other vintage jeeps already so I will sell this one. I have a truck and trailer and can deliver it for you at low cost as I am about 100 miles from Colorado Springs.
