Welcome! Nice Jeep too! I've got a buddy that lives in Brevard, not far at all from you.

Re: New guy from NC, checking in.

Not in Indiana. A guy had torn in all to pieces in SC. It was a mess. I have been trying to trace it back to its original owner.

But yes, this is the one you speak of. Originally from Indiana.

Re: New guy from NC, checking in.

I like the vents. I need vents. What'd those come off of? Know?

Re: New guy from NC, checking in.

The vents came of a Z34 Chevy alumina. The fit is OK at best. The studs on the vents are real long, but they work perfectly.

Re: New guy from NC, checking in.

Welcome to the Club! Funny how these jeeps keep poping back in here in different parts of the country!

Welcome! Those definitely look like WNC pictures. The first one reminds me of a berm like that Tim sent me up and over... And right into a hole on the other side. I miss running the fire and access roads.

Yea sounds like he didn't care for it at all, I see it still has my star of life on the back of it. Here are pics of it when I had it.





And here's mine now

Re: New guy from NC, checking in.

Thats a good looking rig your rolling now.

I am in the process of sourcing everything I need to paint it. I'm not a fan of red, and when I pulled in my driveway the night I got it, I realized EVERY car we own is now red!

It's nice seeing old pics, that way I can piece together what is, and isn't in it anymore. The CB mounted to the left of the driver is gone, but the hot/ground plug is still dangling there. There is also a switch at about shin level on the left side of the center console that I cant figure out. I think its for the rock lights, but they dont work either.

I've haven't owned it long, but believe me when I say I was balls deep in it the first 2 weeks I had it. Still trying to track down a few bugs it has, but all in all its an awesome daily.

I am also debating raising it up just a hair and running 35's. The 33's go perfect for light wheeling, but there are a few places where we go that it would be real nice to be back on some 35's.

Thanks again for the pics and info! Pretty soon it will take on a completely different look, and maybe then I can call it "mine"!
