    It’s nice to have a parking brake. I have owned a few vehicles with manual transmissions that didn’t and got used to killing the engine every time I stopped so it would not roll away. I find parking...

    I have experienced the wobble. When I was a kid my Dad had a 1975(?) GMC 3/4 ton full time 4wd that would do it really bad if you got mud packed into the rims. You had to hit the brakes and get one...

    Another thread reminded me of a question I have on mine. It has a steering stabilizer. I never thought anything of it before because I think every 4WD I have owned had one. I am going to have to cut...

    I had a niece do something similar on her way to school one morning. She swears she wasn’t on her phone. The tracks (gravel road) looked like she just drove into the ditch. No sign of braking or...

    I too recommend getting a manual. I haven’t pulled a drum on a front end in over 30 years and that was on a Bronco. My CJ3A has discs on the front which will come off without pulling the hub. My CJ2A...

    Should not hurt anything on a daily driver. Modern fuel lines and carburetor parts should take it okay. I think 100% gas is critical for anything that sits at all. Alcohol draws moisture into the...

    It looks like the lack of bumperettes or holes to mount them is going to be the determining factor on whether or not this jeep was part of the Navy order. If I ever run into the previous owner’s...

    That’s a nice looking distributor. Points are a bit worn. Mine was rusty and packed full of sand. I couldn’t believe it was still making spark.

    I always stopped to move either lever. I wouldn’t think it would be possible to do High and low on the fly because of the speed difference of the gears. In and out of 4wd might be doable if the front...

    I just saw a picture of CJ2A with an F head motor the other day. I didn’t notice any holes in the hood. I will see if I can find it again.

    All the black is gone from mine. It appears to be embossed brass so this tag could be military. It was installed with pull rivets which makes me think it isn’t original to this CJ2A body and could...
