Hey guys, Tomorrow i'm going to look at an old CJ7 ( i think a 1976 ) of an old family friend. i'm not sure of the condition, but i can post some pictures up after I see it. I'm just wondering for those of you who has restored/done a lot of work to fix up your CJs, what have you put into it financially? roughly how much work has been put into it (i know itll be worth it ), and things like that. Thanks for any and all help!

Well CJ's are awesome. Post some pics and your end plans and I can come up with a estimate. It all depends what you want.

Poor Jeep. She is rusting away to nothing.

I think you made the right decision to walk away.

Sorry for the bad picture. Ive owned this jeep since brand new and I will probably be buried in it. I started the rebuild years ago, rebuilt motor,fiberglass body, all new interior, top, ect.. Ive got more money in this than Ill ever admit to but its my baby and its worth ever penny.
