Jeep tales and tips

Dear Editor:Many additional comments could be added to Tim Willoughby’s Jeep article (“Jeep Brakes and the Wonderful Willys,” Yore Aspen, Oct. 13). For nearly 40 years, I have had a ’63 Jeep in Aspen. Bought secondhand, it has about every accessory possible. The original owner added a Dodge brake booster that works fine. Brakes are not the big problem on part of the Pearl Pass road where you need some people outriggers to keep from rolling. 60 mph is OK in overdrive.Roland FischerLakewood, Colo.
