Interesting subject Spence! I have an 62 CJ-5 it is totally stock with 3 options, It has the full bench seat, the heavy duty 10 inch clutch, and a PTO operated ramsey winch. It also has a full metal cab, which of course is removeable. This is a pretty good rig, kind of slow on the highway, I never take it over 50. For what it was designed for it is hard to beat. I also own a 70 dodge power wagon W200 it has a 318 engine and standard 4 speed trans. Have never had a bit of mechanical trouble with it, although fighting the rust is an ongoing task. I have a mig and keep a supply of sheet metal on hand. I have had some bad luck with new 4x4 vehicles in that if they have automatic hubs or electronic shift transfer cases, you may find yourself walking home. That crap will fail when you need it the most. In this country here you need a vehicle you can depend on. I wouldn't take a new one off the pavement. I will keep my old timers forever.
