Default CJ-2A for the Veterans Freedom Center

Rich and Kevin have been working on a frame off restoration of this CJ-2A for our local Veterans Freedom Center for a number of months.

Today is the big day - the VFC is having its grand opening today and the CJ-2A is being revealed for the first time. Here's a sneak pic of it at the shop today getting it ready.

There's a nifty little surprise on the jeep that you can't see in this pic

before the big reveal...had to bring our own jeeps too



there was a great turnout - makes you proud of your local community when they show up to support local veterans



4 months ago this was an wrecked JK with popped air bags...now its the parts getter and general run-around town company vehicle

I don't know my machine guns I just took what they said. I read the 7.62 on the side of the ammo box.
