I am selling my 1978 Jeep CJ 5 because I have to move to Alaska due to my wife's Air force commitments. The Land Rover won out over it because of the northern weather and driving comfort considerations. If you are interested please call or e-mail me for pictures, and I'd be happy to show it to you. Oh yeah, I'm asking $5500 OBRO.

I drove my 55 CJ-5 w/ a soft top around Fairbanks for three years. I would let the Airforce ship the CJ and drive the Land Rover up to Alaska. I had the Army ship my CJ and my wife and me drove our Rubicon down from Ft. Wainwright to Aspen. I would not let that little CJ get away, I regret selling mine.

Tortoise-
I would love nothing better than to bring my cj to Alaska, it would be baddass in the snow! I am having to sell it because of financial reasons- sell my jeep, use that money to pay off the remainder of my wife's f150 2wd when we sell it, and be in a better position to do all the necessary fixes to the rover for the drive up. (rover=repairs)
Sucks, I know. I don't want to sell it.
P.S. How's the drive? Any tips?:drive:

For the drive-go to a local bookstore and get a large paperback called "The Milepost". Specific info updated every year about the Alcan.

I cheated and took the ferry. The Army paid for it so I took the mini-cruise!!!
If you go in the spring/ summer it will beautiful. If you take the Ferry you will see tons of wildlife.

I had considered the ferry. I don't know how the compensation will go, which way we'd net more. The only problem with that will be that we have a bigger dog and a cat that are traveling with us. Did you see any dogs on the ferry? I wonder where they'd go to the bathroom.

Sadly, I have sold the CJ.
