Have you ever dated Jeep DJ (Dispatcher Jeep) heard? That was a variant of the Jeep CJ with rear-wheel drive, which at the beginning (Model years 1955 and 1956) was built by Willys-Overland. In the years 1967 to 1984 the name came back under AM General aegis. And especially the DJ-5A to DJ-5M were eye-catchers from 1967 onwards. It had the front of the CJ, a four-cylinder Chevrolet Nova engine under the hood and a 2-stage Powerglide automatic transmission. In 1971 there was a variant with a radiator grille that had five bars and no indicators that were only used for Mail distribution was used. Under the hood was an in-line six-cylinder from AMC and it was similar to the CJ series. However, it was a closed vehicle with rear-wheel drive and with "Sliding doors". They could even stay open while driving. There was a flap door at the back. Almost all vehicles only had a seat and a container for letters in the place where the passenger seat was usually built. AMC's daughter AM General brought many different engines to the jeep over time. In the end there was an in-line four-cylinder with a displacement of 2458 cc. But there never was Postbus with a V8!

And as crazy as this specimen as Hot Rod never looked like a DJ. It will be available to buy soon at Barret Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. There he is described as a "1971 Jeep CJ Mail Carrier", although it is clearly a DJ from the dispatcher line. It was originally dated Tuner Stone Cold Customs rebuilt to be exhibited at the 2014 SEMA show. The vehicle began its life as a converted copy for the US Postal Service USPS. In the course of the full Restauration as well as the extensive Tuning were all unnecessary components like trim and Blinker removed and he was on a specially made chassis with Airride air suspension posed. The incredibly clean case in White with lots of chrome all around houses one chrome-plated 6,3 liter V8 engine (383ci) of the Chevrolet brand with about 400 PSthe one with two 4 cylinder carburetors is equipped and attached to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission was paired.

Like all the other jeeps that drove for the USPS, this one is one RHD. At the time, this was necessary to make the driver's job easier by giving them easy access to the mailboxes on the side of the road. And this configuration was used during the renovation maintain. But otherwise the cabin is no longer in the same condition as it was back then. There is now one red leather interior, specific Circular displays, one Foosball stereo system with bluetooth function and a chic one Billet aluminum sports steering wheel. The classic, on the other hand, retains its retro style thanks to the original sliding side doors and the huge ones Jeep letters on the tailgate. Further changes are complete darkened windows, specific Billet Budnik chrome rims (Intro V-Rod, 15 & 16 inches, 195/50/15 and 225/45/16 Toyo Proxes), a Fabric panoramic roof from Lexan and one too High-performance sports brake system from Wilwood are built in.
