Haha, these are some pretty great pictures.
I love the one with the dude leg pressing the Jeep so the other guy can change the tire.

Thanks for sharing. A good pictorial history. Wish I could get a Jeep in a box for $50 with spare parts. :(

When I was a kid they advertised these kits in the trading post paper all the time. Guess they eventually ran out of them.
