the FSJ charter -

     FSJ information
This list is for the discussion of Full-size Jeeps (FSJ)  

An "FSJ" is any vehicle produced in North America, carrying the "Jeep"
nameplate, with 2 or 4drs, in 2 or 4wd, whose wheelbase does not exceed
132", nor is less than 108", and whose tread width is no more than 63" 
nor less than 57". 
This definition is known to include the following models:
                       Wagoneer: 1963-1983
  Gladiator and J-series pickup: 1963-1987
                       Cherokee: 1974-1983
                 Grand Wagoneer: 1984-1991

FSJ readers are NOT a splinter group. It is our intent that 
the FSJ mailing list supplement other Jeep and 4x4 internet
resources and not replace or detract from them. 
Other resources beyond/beside FSJ-List: 

  Mailing list: offroad
  Mailing list: JEEP-L

You think you want a Full Size Jeep?

1) are you a mechanic? 2) are you married to a mechanic? 3) are you related to a mechanic? 4) are you independently wealthy and know a good mechanic? If you can't answer yes to any of the above, this may not be the best choice in vehicles for you. :)
