    Thanksgiving weekend was our much anticipated trip to Havasu Landing for their annual Poker Run across the desert. This being the CJ5's first time out in the dirt I was wondering how it would do. The past 3 years we did this run in our JK so I had plenty to compare. We ran with our buddies in a Zuki with Toyota axles, 36's and a 1.6L, and my other buddy in his buggy with an ecotec. We could not keep up with the buggy... but I was happy with the amount of power this 258 had out on the trail. I never once had concerns with the brakes or power. It did take a little getting used to how far we would lean over in off camber situations. But the biggest thing I noticed was how much I was smiling as we tore down the trails. Secondly was how much attention a CJ gets in an event like this.

    Ok, I guess none of the pictures I've posted have been viewable since my settings were private. Didn't know to even look for that. Hopefully that worked.

    I finally finished my 1952 Willys M38a1 and got it on the road. Hopefully going to first parade this weekend for the local Christmas parade. It has really got me motivated to finally get going on the Tuxedo Park Jeep. So I am going to start on it next week. These Jeeps are so much easier to drive that the flat fender models a lot more room inside and easier to get in and out of . any way this Jeep is not all military as I changed it over to 12 volts put in a toyota starter and a one wire alternator . I did keep the military switches and made them function as original. Best thing I did was to Raptor line the inside and color matched it to the Strata Blue Air Force paint. I just wanted something different that the green ones and this blue looks great and the paint was about $40.00 per gallon and it has held up pretty well. Any way just thought i would post a few pictures. I still have a few more things to do to like top bows and some other missing accessories but it is a great start.

    I like that M38A1. It looks good and very drive-able.
    A couple of questions come to mind:
    How long have you worked on this? As one who has been working on one in my "spare" time for the past 10 years,
    congratulations!

    The Raptor lining looks good and should prove to be very functional.

    Where are you located?
    We will look to see this beauty driving around.

    Looking good.

    My M38A1 was the same color blue when I got it. It was originally OD, but had been surplus-ed to the Civil Air Patrol.
