Good morning and Happy New Year everyone. I just got back in town from spending the holidays with our boys up in ND. With that, please accept my apologies for the late start here. I want to thank everyone for allowing me to participate and a special thanks to
for the nomination. There are some awesome rigs owned by members of this site and the one's currently competing do not appear to be lacking in any way. Congrats to them as well for their nominations. Upon getting home yesterday, I jumped in the truck and headed down to the shop where my 89' is having some work done to it. I had hoped to get it back by middle of next week, but now it's looking more like near the end of the month. I fear this may hinder my participation in this months running, but I'll do the best I can with what little I have.
Intro: My name is Jack. I'm a 43yo small business owner, husband, father of two young men currently serving our nation in the USAF, new grandfather, Patriot, gun owner, hunter, fisher, and proud owner of an 89' Eddie Bauer I'm currently having a love affair with...so my wife thinks. I had been wheelin' a 56' Willys CJ6 for the past 15 years. It hasn't had the tarp off of it since I bought this Bronco!
History: I do not have much history on the truck. I bought it from a customer of mine for $5000. He bought it in AZ and kept it stored at his river house, using only to launch his boats. With the exception of some clear coat peeling on roof & hood and a small ding by left rear tail light, this truck was clean and straight. No rust! He brought it home here in CA sometime in 2015 with intent of setting it up for wheelin'. He put an E-Locker up front on the TTB, a trussed 9" with Detroit Locker in the rear, winch bumper up front, spare/cooler carrier bumper on rear, RatPack sliding tool chest in bed, and new 35" Good Year's all the way around. He took it out once to Ocotillo and then changed direction...he bought a jeep. I noticed it a few times in his company's yard before finding out he was selling it. With the intent of giving it to my boys to drive around hunting and fishing while stationed in ND...I bought it. All it took was the 45 minute drive home from his yard to squash that idea. I pulled in the driveway, showed it to the wife, and said we're keeping it! Here it is the day I brought it home. Sorry if photo quality sucks. I can't seem to figure out how to make photos full size.
To be con't...
