Here is my Willys CJ6 that I am fixing up. If anyone has any ideas or parts that could help me make it better let me know. I really need a top, winch and some fender flares. I was thinking a long whip antenna and CB radio would be cool. A set of stock seats and frames would be cool. Does anyone know where I can get a rear swinging spare tire holder? So much to do!!!!! I love this Jeep!

That is just beautiful. I wouldnt touch a thing. Love the old school wheels. From the looks of that tub I wouldnt want to drill holes for flares or the snaps you'll need for a top.

If you do decide you need a full soft top you can get them

I was shocked that I had found one that was rust free.

I did'nt think I liked long wheelbase CJ's till I saw your's! it's pretty cool....but I would loose the stairs if it were mine.
I had a pair of early CJ seats but are gone now, I still have the rear but looks like you have the original? I do have an old CB you can have that came in a box of parts with my 5, I'm not sure if it's any good but can check if interested.

Any help I can get would help. Can you check if the CB will power up?

I have been trying to convince my wife that we need to get a Tiger Top since the two car covers that I currently cover it with let rain in if it is more than a sprinkle. She has been against it because Christmas is coming and we are watching our budget. Last night I went to her again to see if our finances were good enough to go ahead and order a top. She said that we are close but still needed to wait until after Christmas. Then my prays were answered...... I asked if she had got the mail (She said no.). I went out and checked the mail and guess what was in it. A check from the V.A. It seems they haven't been paying me the right amount for about a year. Crazy thing is.... The check was for the exact amount that the top plus shipping cost! I am blessed!

Well.....It looks good, better than I remember but put 12v to it and proceeded to go thru 3 fuses before I stoped. When I get a chance I will pull the cover off and see if something is obvious. Stay tuned for more.

You now have a new school old school rig. cool
