    For those of you who would like to quickly find the CJ5 folder on your desktop (we all have one, right?) I created a desktop icon that looks like this:

    Standard Jeep.png
    It's not my artwork. Credit goes to Bart Kowalski who has put his image out there free for personal use.
    To create a desktop folder icon, do the following:
    1. Download the JeepCJ5.ico file here (right click the little image and "Save As">JeepCJ5.ico).
    2. Save it to your desktop or a picture folder...a place you can remember
    3. To change your Jeep desktop folder from the boring Windows folder, right click the folder and select "Properties"
    4. From the pop up window, select the "Customize" tab.
    5. Click the "Change Icon..." button
    6. You'll have the ability to browse for the JeepCJ5.ico. Browse to the folder where you saved it and click "Open"
    7. Click "OK" and then "Apply" and voilĂ !
