Damn Jenn, that really stinks!  ...and Matt might be in that boat too?  CRAP!!  When does that stimulus package start to help someone we know?  I'm really sorry.  BJ >:(

Lucent posted their figures yesterday and held off on the layoff that was supposed to be tomorrow....but they said they will revisit the situation Aug/Sept.....so still a waiting game....    :-\

I hope if he needs surgery again that doesn't increase his chances of getting his pink slip..... :(

Sorry Jenn, I'm serving my fourth week of furlough and the company could still have a layoff. :-[

I am in that situation myself and it sucks but to get back on topic: 

I have a set of brand new and never  installed Super lift soft ride spring for a CJ2a  These are military wrapped at one end and near stock height.  They do not have bushings.  These are what is on my  1946.  If you are not interested I will probably trade them to Vintage jeep for a motor or motor parts if I can.  It is becoming apparent that after a year of trying my engine is not going to free up.  I need replace it or my estimate at the beginning of last week was $1600 to rebuild the L134 cid.    Congrads on the flatty though.

Send me a PM on a price or trade Jeremy

I don't know...there's almost enough there that Mike might wanna restore it rather than tear it apart!

We can definitely make one whole CJ2A out of the 2... that's one of the reasons the early CJ's are so much fun to work with!  ;D

Just curious as to where you got the quote and what all that included.

Well I changed the oil in the ole girl today. Changed the air filter.  Dave had been working on rebuilding the water pump and putting new ani-freeze earlier this week. So I told him I just want to see if it runs and drives. I had him hillbilly wire her up so we could start her. Took some coaxing but she turned over and started. Smoked for at least 5 minutes (I don't have any mosquito's in my yard, LOL)then we took it for a test drive up and down the street. I felt like a kid at Christmas!! So its alive!!!!!
I backed her back into the garage and we started taking some parts off we will be putting on the other body. Now we may just make quick work of this project. I hope to have the body and other parts switched over before Mikes Willys show.

LOL Charlie.

Hey Mike check out that link for another project for you.  :DLOL

I do truly believe if I ask Dave for one more Jeep he will flip out on me. When we get the Willys done maybe I can talk him into a CJ8. Chances are though he is going to want a new motorcycle.

Thanks for the link,  I responded to it,  we will see where it goes from there. 


Believe it or not I know the seller,( CV4W member way back when)  Going to try to look tomorrow,  There is a very good chance that I will be acquiring a donor jeep as well.  Jenn,  what specifically do you need to get yours running (better)?
