Did I score a good deal or not really?

Just got a 1986 CJ7 with the 4.2/258 motor that runs just needs fuel pump and new lines! Has 5-speed trans, Dana 44 rear, Dana 30 front and it's got a decent amount of rust but the frame is good! Paid $300 for it and thought it was a steal but not very familiar with jeeps! Been wanting to get one forever now got one and plan on making it a trail rig and play toy! Any thoughts on if I got a decent deal or not!

Terrible deal. I'll do you a favor and take it off of your hands for $301

Seriously though I think you scored big time!

You did not state the mileage, but for $300 what do you have to lose? $300?

That's good then! It needs a lot of work and I've got it tore all down and trying to fix a lot of the rust! Just making it a low cost project to play around with! Heres after 2 days of work on it! Got it saturday morning and worked on it then and Sunday!

You scored buddy. The 44 rear is worth what you paid for it and it has the dana 300 transfer case. If you just parted it out you could easily make money on it. Good luck.

Thanks I am wanting to fix it up somewhat to take on the trails and use as a hunting rig or just a fun low coat build! My just sell it after I'm done fixing it and get another to redo

How is the frame in front of the axles? Get a picture of those and I'll answer your question.

The frame has little surface rust but that's it same as both axles! Cleaned some rust off frame and it is not bad! I can get pictures later on
