Jeeps grow on you

New to the forum here from NE Arkansas. After being in the Jeep family since 89 with my YJ my son who will be a senior in high school next year has had a love for the Jeeps especially the old FSJ's. 2 weeks ago he was able to buy a 77 Cherokee Chief. He and I are both excited for this new adventure into the old FSJ. This looks like a great place to get info and looking forward to hanging out here.

Great! There are a few of us on here doing father/son FSJs! Make sure you do a build thread, even if they are just little projects here and there. The build threads are super encouraging to those of us who are not masters at this and it's a good way for the folks who are masters to offer up their advice. My truck would be a pile of parts sold to someone else if I did not have my build thread.

Post some pictures, too!
Here is one way to post pictures Read thsi thread
and here are two more: read this one, too

Watch the classifieds and use the wanted adds. You will save a ton of money compared to wrecking yards and fleabay.

The title “Jeeps grow on you” caught my eye. Indeed they do! Remember this, “if you are not having fun than you are doing it wrong”. Welcome
