Ready to go Camping ….

• CATEGORIES: Camping, CJ-3B, Features, Old Images

UPDATE:  I did a little more research and finally found this photo at the CJ-3B Page.  There is a complete discussion of the history of the CJ-3B, including a note that the CJ-3B has a custom body extension and a Sears top was purchased that was also custom extended. It’s a good story to read.

I’m not sure where this image might have originated, but I spotted it at

Egon’s recently restored CJ-3A

• CATEGORIES: Features, International

When I last heard from Egon in early 2010, he was considering mounting a flat fender body onto his CJ-5.  However, during the intervening months he had the opportunity to purchase a mostly restored CJ-3A, which was originally brought to Europe for the Swiss Army.

The body on this flattie was replaced about 12 years ago, while the transmission and engine are original to the Jeep.  He spent time this year finishing the project, adding a roll bar, new rims and new tires.   He plans to use his new toy to hunt and explore in and around his Liechtenstein countryside.

I’ve also included a couple pics Egon sent me about a recent hunting trip to Russia where he spent time with some friends.  In his email about the trip, he mentions the All-Wheel-Drive Niva, about which I was unfamiliar;  So, I researched the Niva, which lead to this post.  He notes that the Niva functions well on the Russian terrain of Kirov, however it is a little small for a hunter and all his gear.

1948 CJ-2A Idaho Falls, Id **SOLD**


A reader purchased this deal.

“My wife says I have too many toys! I bought this to restore and play with and I have never gotten to it. It is stored inside I bled the breaks but they probably need a break job to be dependable. Starts and runs great. Motor really purrs. It’s in nice shape for how old it is. Sure would be fun to fix up or restore like new or play as is. Come take a look .”

Year? CJ-3B Tippecanoe, OH **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, Engine • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was Auctioned.

There are a couple interesting issues with this CJ-3B.  First, note the unusual windshield, which almost appears chopped down.  Second, note the fenders; These just don’t look quite right.  I’m even wondering if they are plywood?

The image below does provide a pretty good shot of that left front frame rail and it looks pretty clean, suggesting the frame is in really good shape.  The body also looks pretty straight, which adds to my confusion about the fenders.

Rat Patrol and another tipped Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

As part of the ongoing series on jeeps tipped on their sides for repair, a reader named Warren reports that the first episode, season 1, 14:51 minutes into the show of the Rat Patrol features a brief view of one of the characters working on a Jeep on its side.  I don’t have a copy of the video, but here is a snapshot courtesy of Warren.

What to do with your extra Astroturf ….


Of all the things I’ve seen done to a jeep, I can’t say I have ever seen a jeep dressed with astroturf (or carpet of any kind).  For the record, this is an All Wheel Drive Russian Niva.  See all the pics on here:
