I was having this feeling that sooner or later you are going to end up in buying a jeep after seeing your posts in the 4x4 forum for quite some time. Congratulations and start a thread on the detailed restoration once it starts off.

Slightly OT: Looks like post THAR-launch, interest for buying old jeeps haven't died down as initially thought to be.

Please post pics of current status of the jeep. I think it’s the correct time to start your own thread now.

@Kandisa: Thank you and dude your thread is an inspirational one!! You guessed it right; the Jeep bug has become a Jeep Epidemic!!
@ Sreejesh: Thank you. It seems that way but there were other surprises in store for me!!
@ Mohan: Buddy, my jeep is currently getting restored with another one from the same forum..Any guesses with whom??
I not a good writer and technically zilch and thats why delaying to start a thread. However I will start it soon.

Guys, I know it's a bit too late, but going through all the pictures uploaded, I am tempted.
Circa 2004 I was very keen to have a proper Military Jeep. Hunted around Coorg (where I then lived) for a military-disposal vehicle in good condition, but couldn't find one.
It was then I saw an advertisement in a local newspaper - a CJ-340 for sale!
I bought the Jeep, stripped it down and re-modelled (restore maybe an inappropriate word here!!) it along the lines of a CJ-3B.
I joined the Jeep Thrills group when it had just started.
Derek Redmond was kind enough to post a reference to my Jeep in the CJ-3B page!
Unfortunately, I re-located to Bangalore in 2006 and parking of this 'beauty', (if I may call it) was to be a problem - I was moving from a bungalow in Coorg (with ample parking) into an apartment with a single car park!
I then did the inevitable (in retrospect-foolish/idiotic/...) I sold the Jeep!
When I see all the posts now, I have tears in my eyes, I mean it!!
I miss my Jeep!!

Bopanna,
It looks like a CJ-3B, are you sure its a 340?
I know the feeling and what you exactly feel.

You are going through a Empty Nest Syndrome, get another one for yourself ASAP.

@ Chanu: Wow! Your Jeep looks real good now. Though you've just done a wheel/tyre swap and bingo, I hope that you've got more mods planned for him (definitely male, to quote from Bajaj's ad campaign!). How's the Jeep's mechanicals? Looks well maintained.

Thanks Coloneljasi for your lovely comment even I wonder just a wheel swap did not only bring a great change the way it looks but changed the way I drive it.

Yes I have planned a ton of modds like snorkel, front grille mesh, pipe foot board, strengthening rear door and bringing the spare wheel to the middle as it is cracking the tail lamp, halogen lamps from Hella, bucket seats and further on.

Default Missing those Jeepy days !

@ sudarsan and sreejesh , I committed the same mistake of selling the current with out getting a new Jeep (but I bought a CONTESSA , and is under modification now)
But still a Contessa can not give a satisfaction that which a jeep gave you !
Missing the Jeepy days.
