Ha, funny to have found this particular tread. I know it is an old one but here it goes.
I am form CR, moved to NJ 25 years ago. My first ride was a 1947 JC-2A that I enjoyed very much. Back in a jeep after many years, feels just like the old days!!!
BTW, I have seen a newer JKU (red) a couple of times parked between a house and a horse barn that says "PURA VIDA*COSTA RICA" in white letters right above the rear fenders, pretty cool looking jeep.
Have seen it on my way to a job two or three times but never got to see or talk to the owner.
