The following pictures are from the previous year's winter trip (2004).

It's an interesting story.  This old 1965 Kaiser Jeep CJ-5 has been around a while.  The beginning years of it's life are unknown but Paul got this Kaiser years ago to commute to college.  It was old and beat up then but it served him well.  At some point an engine rebuild was done by Paul and his dad.  Then it was driven back and forth hundreds of miles to and from the cabin several time, finally to make one more trip up to the cabin where it then sat.  For 7 years.  Outside.  Then one day, a few guys though it would be interesting to see if this old Jeep will fire up.  Cranking away a old-Kaiser-Jeep.jpg (33007 bytes) cylinder fired.  Then two.  Then three of the four were firing!  After a little tinkering the "Hurricane" 134 I4 engine was firing on all 4 cylinders.  It was alive again.  Paul then re-adopted this old Jeep, towed it home and made a few worthwhile modifications to the Vintage Kaiser Jeep. 

Here, Paul in his 1965 Kaiser CJ-5 cracked through the ice along the creek, and got locked in the ice requiring a good yank out.

Some of the modifications made to the old Kaiser Jeep CJ-5 include:

  • 2 1/2 inch Suspension Lift and New Shocks

  • Truetrac locker installed in the Stock Dana 44 Rear axle.

  • Dana 30 swap of the stock from Dana 27 axle, replacing the front drum brakes with disc brakes.

  • Truetrac locker installed in the front Dana 30

  • 33" Interco Super Swamper Boggers mounted on black American Racing Steel Rims

This old Kaiser sat right here, on top of a remote Pennsylvania mountain, for 7 years
