My wife and I put the gantry together. It took about 2 hours because of things that had to be moved, such as a Christmas ferris wheel that I typically hang from the ceiling for storage. It was a beast, but we did it. Thankfully, when I bought the gantry, it came with a cheapo […]

It happened again Yep, it happened again. I fell in love with a picture of a Jeep. This time, its a Forward Control FC170 (or a FC150). I don’t even know where I saw this picture. I think I was doing an image search for something and I ran across it and saved the image. […]

I have been thinking of adding a gantry crane to my garage to help out with the heavy lifting. (Sorry, honey. You've done a great job so far.) Unfortunately, I couldn't afford one. Fortunately, I FINALLY found one on Craigslist for $250 with a small winch (not for lifting, though). It's not a normal gantry [...]

I wish I could say it was my Jeep that is rebuilt, but it is not. It is this website, PhilsJeep.com. I have spent a large amount of time over the last few days totally revamping this website. Personally, I like how it is now, but I am biased. Please feel free to contact me […]

I have had this Jeep project for 12 years or so. It has almost always been in my garage, taking up precious space. I was recently trying to decide whether or not to keep the project or sell (or trade) it. I asked fellow 4×4 enthusiasts on Twitter what they thought. (Here’s the original tweet […]

Many years ago, I picked up this brochure from eBay. I believe it was for the entire Jeep line of 1962 or 1963. Below are photos of the brochure.

I firmly believe this is one of the rarest jeeps in the United States. Why? Well, how many CJ-6s have you ever seen driving around? (I have seen 1, parked in a parking lot of Garden of the Gods.) OK, even IF you have seen one driving around, how many have been a right hand […]

Phil’s Jeep is officially a 1963 Jeep Willys CJ-6. However, that is what the title says. My Jeep is actually a 1961 Jeep Willys CJ-6. It is an EXTREMELY rare Right Hand Drive jeep and the VIN even verifies that. The last 5 digits show on this website that it is actually a ’61 CJ6, […]

Below are miscellaneous pictures that you may want to see. Most of the parts in the photos are included in the sale, but not all. I no longer have the original axles and frame, for example. They are not included. Feel free to ask any questions.

There are four lists below. First is a list of parts that have been used on the build. Second is a list of parts obtained for the build but not yet used. Third is a list of parts for sale. These were obtained, but not used. Fourth is a list of the parts that still […]

The original frame was bent up. This was not noticed until after it was boxed. I brought it to a frame shop and they were able to fix it as best as they could, but I could tell that it still wasn’t back to normal. “Like a pretzel,” is what they said. This bothered me […]

Last Saturday, I cleaned the garage enough so that I can easily work in it. I can even park my 1976 Jeep CJ-5 in it at the same time. That’s going to help out sooo much more. (Proof that I owned both at the same time.) [supsystic-gallery id=3]

I have been slowly accumulating the parts. I now have a Dana 300 transfer case. I have a seal and gasket kit and twin sticks on the way, as well, for that Dana 300. I have also received the Novak Adapt NV4500 to Dana 300 adapter.    I sold the other CJ6 that I had. [...]
