    Roam Automotive has a Jeep addiction.

    This little nugget's going to debut on the 6th Annual U.P. Overland trip the end of the month!

    Do you know where in Colorado it came from?

    I remember one like/similar in Colorado Springs in the mid 90's.

    LOL! Primarily cosmetic. Engine (289 Ford) is tight, brakes good, etc. Runs really, really well.
    Going to give the cab a vinyl wrap ( not original paint ) - and the camper will be painted to match.

    Debating wheels ( MT ) and tires ( Duratrac ) today. The tires on it now are brand new... may just paint the wheels and be happy with it?
    We're talking about a little bit of lift if we go with new gear.

    Interior of the camper is cool. Fully functional. Sink, Beds, Bunks, Stove, Fridge, etc. So cool.

    More to follow. I emailed the previous seller from Colorado ( Pueblo ) for more information about it. The local guy in Marquette had it shipped out and it just sat for a couple years.

    We'll be posted quite a few pics on the Roam Automotive Facebook Page too if you're a FB'er.

    I like that bed setup. Me, I'd be tempted to just use the bunk bed, and leave the table setup.

    Wow, this is awesome! My suggestion to your wheels question would be to paint what you got. This rig definitely needs to stay old school a bit. A small lift to reinvigorate the suspension sounds like a good idea to me.

    My brothers and I dreamed of a rig like this. An old, rugged machine, with some comforts of home for the three of us. My oldest brother wanted to take a trip across Canada (I don't know where the idea came from) and he called the rig he was dreaming of the "Canadamobile". He actually got a start on it with a very early Toyota pick up (2wd, I think it was a '72?...) that he found a little camper top for and added more capable tires. Alas, those tires were not enough as he slid it into a tree in a snowstorm right in our neighborhood in NJ.

    Fond memories... sorry to hijack
