I am Randall from Southeast Oklahoma the part of Oklahoma that has mountains. I have always had a jeep of some kind since 1976. I currently have a 78 CJ5, and two CJ8 Scramblers, and now I have a not sure what year but do know it is a MB Jeep. My dad has a friend who had bought this MB and just didn't have the time or money to get it going so I gave him $600 and now I am in the process of getting it back on the road. We just rebuilt the steering column, and will be working on the brakes next. I am amazed at how the Military Jeeps in the MB and GPW era are to work on, I guess they were built with simplicity in mind so that they could be fixed and put back into battle. I LOVE this thing.
