Re: Nominations for Club President

I think the MIJC.org website should stay up, but it should become a ‘Members Only’ website. Club specific things can be discussed or announced on this site. The forum categories ‘MIJC events’, ‘The Back room’, ‘website q & a’, and ‘MIJC club info’ should stay on the forum. All the other categories a...

Re: Nominations for Club President

Rants from an old guy: I rejoined the club this year after being out of the club for several years. I looked at the club member list of 45, and I only know 24 names on the list. So, many who may read this post probably will wonder who this guy is. So, to those who don’t know me, my club history incl...

Jeep value

Trying to determine a good price on a Jeep. 2006 Rubicon 1. Low mileage vs high miles - if it has 40,000 miles VS 90,000 how much does that add to value? 2. If it only has a soft top VS has both soft top and hardtop with matching doors, what does Two tops Add? 3. Automatic VS manual, price diff? Opi...

Manual vs Automatic Transmission ??

I would like to find a 2004 - 2006 wrangler Rubicon. There are alot of them on Craigslist, and the majority have automatic transmissions. I’ve never owned a Jeep with an auto trans. My only experience with an automatic was riding with Ray Miller in his red Yj with auto trans. Going down steep hills ...

Re: Inspections March 3rd

Sorry TSE, I bought a real Jeep! But, I was talking to Osterdock last week. He apparently had a brain fart, because he did purchase a 1995 YJ! The sole purpose for the YJ is to plow snow in his driveway! He measured the bumper height on the YJ rear bumper, and said he may have to have a lower push b...

I have decided to retire from MIJC. A lot of you know that I was one of the founding members of the club, and I have enjoyed a lot of years of Jeepin' with fellow club members. My Jeep inventory now only consists of the 47 Willys, which is a 'street machine' and not an offroad vehicle. My motor vehi...

Unless the event has grown in size since the Springfield Reunion a few years ago, you will easily be able to see it all in one day. Effingham is also home for the Mid America Corvette business. They have a free Corvette museum that is nice to see at least once. Also, the state's largest 'Cross' is i...
