Scott "Jeep4Brains" Shafer purchased his early '53 CJ-3B from the original owner in 2000, complete with hardtop and PTO winch, and with very little rust or body damage.
Here Scott coaxes the Jeep across a crack at Moab, Utah. For some trails he puts on the 33x12.50 tires, but he says, "I never go anywhere without the trailer...."
Another shot (120K JPEG) shows Scott's (non-original) hood ornament.
Scott also has 1953-style 16-inch NDT tires, and when he's running those on the stock rimes and driven by the original drive train, he says, "The biggest add-on is the headlight rings."
Thanks to Scott for the great photos. -- Derek Redmond
