Looks like some kind of soft top- Whoa.

That’s my take too. I know there is an XJ running around COS with a custom soft rear top. I never saw this Waggy but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for it for more pics if I can.

I wish- he was keeping 3 of the 7 old jeeps. The 1414X was one of them.

I did snag a rhino grill and 4 pie plates. A buddy of mine snagged two AMC engines.

If he was willing to sell the X, I would’ve bought it.

No doubt! I need to find myself one of these magical jeep forests though...oh, and then a barn or shop to put them all in, and time to work on them all, and probably the money for all that too! haha. Great pictures though.

Passed a junkyard a couple weekends ago here in Colorado.

Then yesterday I had to drive to/from Pueblo. Saw a Waggy and Cherokee about the same vintage and probably owned by the same person, off the road. Didn't get a pic though, sorry.

I'd guess 60s Chevy but I'll look closer next time I'm by that way. I'd like to stop by and see if they'd let me wander around.

Spotted this gem in Illinois. Looked like it was in really nice shape, especially for being in the rust belt. Image

So the wife and I had absolutely nothing to do today. We decided to visit the local gun store to look around. After that she mentions she isn't so interested in getting a Jeep renegade anymore. I ask what she likes instead and she says"let's go test drive a JK unlimited.
We did and she admitted it was a lot nicer than she imagined. Not that we can afford it but at least I’ve brought her to the dark side finally!
While we were pulling into the used car lot I spotted something I thought I was imagining. After finishing at the dealership we drove down to the Jeep dealer and I about peed myself with excitement. There, out in front, sat TWO mythical unicorns!

It may seem weird but after being teased since about 1997 hoping for Jeep to offer a pickup again, it was like a fresh breath of air to see one live and in person. Unfortunately I looked at the sticker price... $53000.00+! I won’t be affording one of those but it did my heart good to see it in real life.

Today was interesting. Drove to the bank and passed a grey jtruck going the other way. Then, as I'm heading to storage I pass the same truck and it has a load of lumber in the back.
Coming back from storage I see a different jtruck in the same general area. That one was a whit/red stepside. Who are these people!!??!

Passed this guy heading north towards Colorado springs. Rare bird to say the least.
