Happy New Year 2023 Edition

• CATEGORIES: News

Happy New Year 2023!

Normally I write a large rehash of the previous year, then provide previews for the coming one. However, jeep-wise I didn’t do a whole lot in 2022, other than post to eWillys every other day or so. I expect the posting trend to continue, that of new content every other day or so. What I really need to do is downsize my server (it’s $100/month), and move as much good content to a place where it can be preserved (though I am not sure where that will be).  But, I don’t expect to tackle that task anytime soon.

For the most part, our winter and spring 2023, will mostly involve us staying around our place. With the new lighting (see below), I should be ready by early next week to begin work on the racer again. We also have one quick trip planned for 2023, a jaunt to the Southwest, to hopefully pick up a new jeep (we still need to test drive it). Assuming everything goes as planned, I know you all will be excited to see what we get.

In other news, one thing I’ve been wanted to do since we bought this place is replace the dying fluorescent lights in the shop with LED lights. Well, yesterday I began that process.

I was going to rent a lift to do it, but then I realized I could use my tracier+fork lifts with a tall aluminum ladder to reach the lights. You may notice that the ladder is strapped to the forks, which made it feel very secure (the garage floor is sealed and kind of slick as a result, so securing the ladder was important). The whole setup worked really well and was simple to reposition.

2022-12-31-replacing-lights-shop1

2022-12-31-replacing-lights-shop2

I elected to go with the LED replacements that removed the ballast and required rewiring, but in the end I felt they would be the simplest (no more ballast) to maintain. To complete the replacement, besides the lights, I also had to buy replacement holders. So, I swapped out the old holders, wired up the new ones, and inserted them where the old ones were.

For bulbs, I went with stock# PLTS-11961 from https://www.1000bulbs.com
5400 Lumens – 42 Watt – 4000 Kelvin – 8 ft. LED T8 Tube Lamp – Type B
And for new holders I went with these from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XT7ZJLV

Gevarm Frence Jeep Model on eBay

Roger Martin shared this French jeep with a Gevarm mark on its underside. I haven’t seen another one of these. Given the box shows the jeep 1) in olive drab, 2) with a trailer, and 3) with armaments, I am wondering if this jeep should have those extras and be painted olive drab?

1978 UAZ Carmel, IN eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Bill shared this rare UAZ for sale. It’s supposed to be a zero mileage vehicle. The buy-it-now price is $29,900. I don’t know if that is a good price or not.

“A true Soviet Army SUV, this particular one is very rare due to the fact that it has no mileage, it was Army conservation and later purchased by former army general who kept it in climate controlled garage until we bought it and imported into the US. All export and import duties are paid; it is now titled in IN and can be registered in any state in the US.

It’s practically like new with very few flows that I tried to show in pictures.

The 2.5-liter inline-four features a single carburetor and sends power to the rear or all four wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a twin-stick dual-range transfer case, making it very versatile.”
