The Second Coming

It's been almost 3 years, a shell off restoration, a 2000 mile move across the country and a whole lot of labor this spring and summer.

Welcome to this world "The Doghouse". Today is the day we officially take her on her first voyage as a finished camper. A short jaunt to the Champoeg Rally in NW Oregon.

Here she is waking up this morning at the house.

Ain't she cute?

If you want to read about her upbringing.

Awesome, that looks like the extended Jeep TJ as a tow vehicle.

That 4.0 straight six is a bullet proof engine ! Its a torque monster !
Oops, I said 'bullet'. Hope I don't get your thread erased.
I have a 98 TJ and a new JKU. I could not get rid of my trusty old friend, great little vehicle, handy as a shirt pocket.

Let us know how it tows you AS. The AS looks great as well !
Impressed,
Safe travels ! Have a good one,

The TJ pulls it quite well and it's coming up on 180 K.
We're just waiting for the diesel to come out and then will have a true torque monster.
