    If Senior Chief puts on his dress whites and drives his truck, we all would be put to shame of the amount of females attention he would get....

    As the others have offered, if you find a Jeep in the Southeast, I would be happy to check it out for you.

    Update as a formal member of the flat fender club

    Update!! Good news and not so good news, lol. The great news, I'm now a formal member of the flat fender club. Fresh of the boat from Japan, my wife took delivery of a 1980 Mitsubishi Jeep still in original Army kit. The not so good news, I'm still in Afghanistan, was extended due to the stuff going on, looking very much forward to getting home and tinkering on the Jeep!

    OMG!!! Are you kidding me? Your wife is an Angel, what a nice vehicle. Wow top notch man.

    I hope you get home soon. I am sure you are aware of the news on Afghanistan here. We all truly appreciate the personal sacrifice and physical effort you put into the defense of our freedom. You deserve that "Flat Fender"!

    I agree with bmorgil your wife is a Angel, where in the world did she find that beast? That isn’t even a project she found you a finished example, it doesn’t need anything but a driver!!!!
    Praying for a speedy and safe return so you can enjoy your family and your new “Baby”!!!!

    wait a second. is that thing right handed drive?

    Thanks all, I married the right woman for sure, lol! It is a 1980 Mitsubishi Jeep J54, made under license from Jeep's CJ3B model. It has a 2.7l diesel and as 5JeepsAz noticed, it is right hand drive. May take some getting used to, especially on corners. It is in pretty good original condition with 25k miles on it. The frame/underbody still has the original heavy duty mil-grade undercoating. The tailpipe, all the way up to the manifold, is the only thing showing it's age and will likely need to be replaced in the near future. I have no idea how to replace a tailpipe, but look forward to learning.

    It is 24v with some modern additions like defrost, an am radio (original), new tires. The top will need to be patched and then replaced in the near future and I need to figure out how to deal with the surface rust.

    Started the countdown again, 27 and a wakeup. I'm excited to start tinkering!
