Depending on what you are bringing out, I do have a complete column from a late 70's model, tan in color. You make it to Nebr. and we'll see what we can do.
Have a safe trip and we will see you here tomorrow. Call if you have any issues we can assist with.

I don't think that will be a problem! We have a TON of parts at the house. I can't think of anything we need unless it has to do with non-jeep things.

Ok so we left on Saturday for Utah from San Antonio and plan on heading down to Colorado on Tuesday. I can say that we made it successfully to Utah and the jeep did it's normal rich running/loss of power at the high altitudes...but it was not a problem...it still kept going and got us here with no problems. We were even driving at altitudes over 7,000 ft and the jeep ran rough but kept running and starting without a problem. Tomorrow I am going to be working on it with a friend (mechanic) in a repair shop and we will see if we can't make some headway in getting it to run better at high altitudes. Hopefully all will go well and we won't make things worse....we plan on rolling into the KOA sometime Tuesday evening. It will be good to meet you all and do some wheeling!!
