My ‘95 Cherokee is sitting in the driveway with driver’s front on jacks. Need to replace the hub and can’t get the damn thing off. All the bolts are out and it’s frozen solid.
I drive my 65 CJ5 around the block sometimes. It feels like it is going to come apart at 45 it being geared so low but it is so much fun.
It only has a foot and change of pipe for exhaust so it is kind of loud for a 4 - 134. I’m sure it annoys the Stalins next door just by it sitting in the carport.
It was a craiglist find in SC near the NC line up above Spartanburg.
The passenger side locking hub appears to be frozen in “free”.
I also use it as a stock video subject as well when working on it which is why it takes me longer to do anything since I am (rusty/ancient) mechanic and camera jockey.
This is one I caught with the 100mm fixed macro that came about by accident. It isn’t much but it got accepted. No special effects. Just the lens and a 60D.

My $0.02 of advice: 50/50 mix of acetone and transmission fluid. Soak heavily over and over for a day, heat, then MANY short taps with a real metal hammer (while wearing safety glasses, I will show you the ophthalmologist’s bill) _while tension is on it with a puller_. It WILL come off.
Ya wanna sell that old fridge that's lying on your front lawn? :)
