It's a cool old Jeep alright, I hate to sell it. Fun to drive. I think it could be driven to Colorado. I'd do a tire upgrade first. The safest would be to transport it on a car trailer. It's a little cold blooded, starts a little hard when the weather is real cold. But runs strong. Only real problems that have slowed it up was a bad (rusted) fuel tank, which I replaced and points & gap that I took care of it. But I have neverr driven farther than about 40 miles from home.
