Here's another of my personal projects that I need to sell due to looming retirement. This Jeepster can be driven anywhere. I bought this about a year ago and drove it 200 miles home. I discovered when we were servicing it ( I own a foreign car service shop) that it had a flat cam lobe so I replaced the cam, lifters, timing chain and gears, water pump, belts and hoses etc etc. Now it runs great and will cruise 65-70 no problem with lots of power in reserve. This is the Buick odd fire 225ci engine. I did a compression check yesterday and all cylinders are between 125-135 psi at our 4000' elevation. Clutch, 4wd, drivetrain all work great! Tires and wheels are new. Heater, wipers, lights all work good. The paint is thin-could definitely do with redoing. It was originally white and interior still is. The pictures describe the interior-seats have some tears in them but generally in good servicable condition. The body is quite good with a few small areas in the floor pans. The rocker panels will require work eventually (see photos) We've greased it and checked all the fluid levels. I can't verify the mileage but given the overall condition of it it may be close! I'm not trying to make any money on this-just want most of my investment back as I have to sell most of my vehicles in the next 18 months. Ck my feedback-I've sold lots of vehicles all over the world and never an unhappy customer! I'll help as much as possible with shipping. If you have questions send me an e-mail or call me (Rick) at 308-430-1778 (cell). Happy bidding!!

Dodge and Jeep are announcing recalls of a total of 895,000 Durango and Grand Cherokee models worldwide from the 2011 through 2014 model years. There's a possibility that the wiring in the sun visor can short circuit and cause a fire. It specifically affects vehicles built between January 5, 2010, and December 11, 2013, and there are approximately 651,000 of them in the US, 45,700 in Canada, 23,000 in Mexico and 175,000 outside of North America.

Screws that fasten the sunvisor to the headliner may pierce wires in the visor, if the part has been removed or serviced, potentially causing a fire risk. If the wires short circuit, they could overheat and potentially combust. The automakers report three injuries caused by this defect, and according to the investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "there may be a total of 52 unique fire incidents."
To fix the problem, Dodge and Jeep will inspect the vehicles for suspect wiring, and all of the models, whether damaged or not, will get a new sun visor spacer with a wire guide to stop the possibility of short circuits. According to the automakers' announcement, "this condition is not present in vehicles which have not had the headliner or vanity mirror serviced." They will notify affected owners, and repairs will begin in August.
We've known for some time that the new, Fiat-based baby Jeep (which may or may not be called the Jeepster) is set to arrive at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. What we weren't sure of was whether its platform mate, the so-called Fiat 500X, would be doing so alongside or at a later date. Well, according to Reuters, we'll get to see the first all-wheel-drive 500 later this year in the City of Lights.

Yes, we can expect the 500X to arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, according to an official with an Italian trade union. The unnamed source cited retooling at Fiat's Melfi factory, in southern Italy, which currently produces the Grande Punto. It's expected that the newest member of the growing 500 family will replace the Suzuki SX4-based Fiat Sedici, although when the X will go on sale remains an open question.
According to Reuters, both the Jeepster and 500X will be built alongside each other in Italy. Whether the 500X will cross the pond with it's slat-grilled cousin, though, remains to be seen (we're leaning towards yes).
If you want to build a cheap truck that can still do dirty deeds off the beaten path, it's best to start with solid axles and a solid V8 engine. That sums up the lessons learned after watching the 2014 Cheap Truck Challenge from the Dirt Every Day video crew, who took to the deserts and surrounding areas near Reno, NV, in an attempt to find the best 4x4 for under $4,000. Fortunately for us, the whole sordid journey was captured on video.
This isn't the first time the boys from DED filmed a Cheap Truck Challenge, and this year's festivities pitted together a 1993 Chevy S10 pickup, a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 1975 International truck in a series of challenges ranging from donuts to drag races, with plenty of hill-climbing and rock-crawling action in between. We don't want to spoil all the fun, but suffice it to say one competitor was found to be lacking while the other two performed (mostly) well. See for yourself in the video above.
