New Member/ Soon To BE FSJ Owner

Hey All,

I am in the process of getting my first FSJ. Its gonna be a 1965 Jeep Gladiator with the step side bed, 232 I-6 and the three on the tree. This will be my first ever Jeep and my first car with a manual trans. It needs a little work here and there but otherwise it's good to go. It even comes with a plow. I unfortunately do not have any pics of it on my computer at the moment but I post some up when I get her.

A little about me as well. I am 26 and in the PA Army National Guard as a combat medic. I have deployed once, for 9 months to Kuwait. I am an avid outdoors man and enjoy hiking, camping, and muddin'. I hope to learn a lot here and look forward to my first FSJ.

So Christmas came early for me today.

Got the factory service manual for the Jeep in the mail as well as the fabric for the door panels I ordered.

Going with Tan 500D Cordura Nylon fabric that's urethane coated so it'll be water resistant (Same stuff they use to make the military duffle bags but tan instead of green)

I'll be seeing her for the first time on Thursday (She's been sitting at Grand_Wag_85's house since my landlord won't let me keep her at my apt.)

Grand_Wag_85 has been helping me get her up to passing NY State inspection ( )

Will be posting up pics when I see her and maybe a video of me driving her for the first time

If you have it loaded and linked on photobucket it should work.

Some Updates

So I figure I'll post up pics of the things I have gotten for Old Red so far. Progress has been slow with the build up due to personal issues. will post up pics of build as soon as work re-starts.

New Fenders From A M416 Trailer


5-Gallon Fuel Cans (Cause I Can )


Holders For Above Fuel Cans


New Shifter Knob (Factory One Was Missing And I Thought This Was Classy)


"New" Radio; FM/CB Radio From Sears


Bottle Opener For Bedside


New CB Antenna To Be Mounted On Roll Bar Between Fog Lights

Progress has restarted on Old Red. Found out what the bulge in my headliner was, a massive mouse nest. This also solved the question of where some of the cushioning from my seat went. Good news is the headliner came put in one piece so now I can make a pattern for a new one.

Found out I need a headlight switch and a floor dimmer switch. Kinda figuring out that mud wasps seem to love Jeeps too been finding empty nests everywhere. lol.

I promise I will update with pics as I get picture worthy progress complete.

Well the wiring harness came in and I'm in the process of getting it hooked up. Got the headlights working and the marker lights. The new door locks I got for her had to have a little redneck body work done to enlarge the holes so they would fit, which also meant filing down the factory retainer clips so they would fit as well. Got the windows so they actually function too, happy to have functioning windows now. Now comes finding a place for the fuse panel in a truck that never had a fuse panel. Anyone have any ideas as to mounting location? I'm thinking it might end up under the seat since anywhere else it interferes with pedal movement or is inaccessible if I blow a fuse.
