Jambo #0435 (G-2)
Owner: Jeff Gerdes
Location: Wichita, Kansas
I have owned this Jeep since May of 2005. The speedometer was not working when I bought it, so the miles indicated on it are not the actual mileage. For those purist's, I bought this CJ with the drive train modifications already done by the previous owner, so I cannot take responsibility for having done them. Many of the Jamboree specific features are no longer present on this CJ.
The engine is a GM 350 C.I. V-8, the transmission is a Granny Low Ford G-18 four speed with a Jeep Dana 300 transfer case. The front axle is a Dodge Dana 60 and the rear is a Ford Dana 70, both have Detroit Lockers and 6.16 gear ratio's. I recently replaced the 44" TSL Bogger tires with 44" TSL Super Swampers mounted on re-centered and widened H1 double beadlock wheels. It has appeared in Crawl magazine doing a nose stand at the waterfall in Disney, Oklahoma. I take it offroad and it will go just about all the same places as a normal short wheelbase Jeep can go and some they can't. It is my daily driver to work and gets down the road and trail with ease.
