DJ-3A Hardtop Mount Kisco, NY $375

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $300. This looks to be the sliding type, based on the additional pic that shows the handle at the front of the door. Technically, this is the DJ-3A version. The CJ-5 version of the top had windows. But, I believe this would fit a CJ-5.

(07/25/2019) There’s some rust on this top, but I can’t tell how deep it is.

Everyone kept suggesting high performance parts when rebuilding the motor. I had to remind everyone what it was going back into. That light weight body does not need a high performance built motor.

1978 Jeep Expedition of the Americas

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos • TAGS: .

Mark Smith was the leader of the 1978 Jeep Expedition of the Americas (also known as the Expedicion de Las America), a 20,000-mile, 120 day odyssey that covered the Americas. Much of the trip was on roads, with the offloading of the the Darien Gap, the section of land between Colombia and Panama, the focus of the trip.

The narrator in the movie notes, rather dramatically and erroneously, that the Gap had only been crossed once before by the British Army. In fact, the Darien Gap had been crossed at least once before in 1960 by a group in a Landrover and a Willys truck, the story of which was published in National Geographic and clearly titled “We Drove Panama’s Darien Gap“. Though Frank and Helen Schreider drove the entire length of the Americas in their SEEP, Tortuga, in 1954, one place they didn’t attempt to drive, but instead floated around, was the Darien Gap.

Fortunately for us, the 1978 trip was captured on video, so we can enjoy some of what they saw during their adventure. Vimeo currently has a twenty-seven minute video of the trip. It’s a little dated at times, but still interesting to watch:
