October 20, 2011Well since there is not a Commando forum ( hint) I figured I would post here. Picking up my new to me 1970 Jeepster Commando tomorrow! I have been regretting selling my last one ever since it left my drive on a trailer over a year ago. That one had a Buick 350/TH400/D20/D44/D27SOA and pretty solid for this area. This one has the original 225V6/manaul 3speed/Dana 20. Not sure of the axle yet? I am thinking D44/D27. It has a SOA conversion and front Disc brake conv. Needs a lot of body work attention, but as i told the wife, it is a diamond in the ruff Plans for it are to be determined, but I am thinking 350/700R D60/D44 conversion ( since I have the parts laying around) for a 80/20 daily driver/light wheeler. I will determine more once I get it home and review exactly what I have purchased Pics this weekend

November 3, 2011Hey Guys, It`s been a long time since the last time I posted on here. Funny thing was I came here looking for any info on Jeepsters. They have always been my favorite model. I have been looking for the right one for a while, and waiting for the right time.
That looks like a great start.
Hope all is well for everyone, it`s been a while and a lot has changed.
I have two children now and want a Jeepster to haul them around.
