    I don't think I've seen one done to that extent, but I give it a thumbs up. The wagon would ride nicer with the lengthened wheel base. Then you could put a wider rear seat in if you choose to.

    Walking is pretty good exercise, but pushing isn't. Last weekend the Heep was out for a 40 mile run. At a little past half way back, she coughed a little at cruise. She had my full attention, so I...

    The body is pretty easy to remove, even if you do not have a fancy automotive lift or a bunch of friends. It looks like you have all the needed tooling, so you'll have a breeze of a good time.

    It's a Timex, for sure. She is rusty and crusty, but she handles well on the open road, and through the back county. By the way, I found out what the noise I was hearing/feeling. When I did the...

    Rain doesn't bother the Heep. Rust spots, just buff them down.

    Welcome! 7AC!

    JC Whitney was the greatest! Montgomery Ward also had Jeep parts and accessories as well. Somewhere I have a set of lock out hubs that came from Monkey Wards.

    My current neighbors have come to expect the unexpected when the trailer gets hooked to the truck. At any given time, I have a constant rotation of oddities.

    I play the part of a quality engineer, so I know you'll have no issues in rebuilding your engine. The 134 is pretty basic, and as long as you follow your Dad's manual, you'll do just fine.
