    Hi Early CJ-5

    We recently purchased a 1950 Willys from Albuquerque New Mexico and would like to get it transported up to Mechanicville NY. It will run with gas poured into the carb so it will run up onto a trailer.

    If anybody out there is making East West runs I would much rather pay a Jeep person than just a nameless transport company.
    Thanks in advance.

    I got Davis Transport out of North Carolina...It cost me twice what the Jeep cost me to get it shipped...very nice guys...only took them 3 days to get it from Albuquerque New Mexico to Malta NY...it was over 2000 miles....I was impressed with them...they text as they go along too...

    I am actually going to try to lower it down a tad...if has some funky oddball looking 1.50" thick body mounts that I would like to get a set of .50" or .75" thick one instead...this is going to be a "mall crawler"...

    thanks for asking...

    Hi Irovet

    Ended up running $1650.00 to go from Albuquerque New Mexico to Malta NY....I only gave $850.00 for the Jeep so overall not too bad for something that is virtually rust free compared to the last 3 (Jeeps) I had which were all local rot boxes from the Northeast part of the country.
