Harley, if you do the scrambler thing, let me know lol. i wanna do that too, i just don't want to royally mess up my only roof lol.
Okay,I will..a combination of being busy doing other things plus laziness is why I have not started..I have 2 tops,a cj7 and a yj.I plan to use the cj7 because the yj one is very nice.I have to do some measuring but I think that if I cut it straight across just in front of and in back of the side glass it will be the right length.I will also have to notch out the rear corners of the top to match the tub..I'm thinking that to get a good strong bond between the 2 halfs,I might pop rivet some steel strips on the inside of the top and then fiberglass the seam on the inside and outside..if all that works out,then build a sheetmetal piece to bolt in from the floor up to the top..I welcome anyones comments or suggestions..
Howdy all ! I'm only on here every so often. And you are right about the wrangler thing. I have had all except the JK (yuc)- '64 CJ3B, 92 YJ, 02 TJ, and most recent, '78 CJ5. SO far I have replaced the seats, top, wheels and tires. All gauges are functioning, the only issue is the heater core is leaking so I had that bypassed. Don't really need it down in Texas. Showing 71 k miles, had 69 k when I bought it last year. From the second owner, who knew the original owner so I believe the miles to be accurate. Gonna keep her as stock as possible, 258, 3 spd T-150, and 1 bbl carb.
Sweet looking Jeep! It looks in really good shape!
Thanks ! We lucked into it when we found her. I had just sold my TJ and we decided to wait for a bit. Well I was grazing on Craigslist and BAM just saw this one. Boss lady said lets go look. I lasted literally two months without a jeep. Right place at the right time !!! Some minor rust issue along the seam of each front fender. and the driver side pan was replaced. Other than a mess of mud-dobber nests in every nook and cranny she has been trouble free.
OH NO !!! I spotted a drop of oil ( yes,1 drop ) on the concrete under BadBoy..Everything is new on this jeep so it freaked me out that my baby was bleeding..Turned out that it was just the fitting in the block that feeds the oil pressure gauge..So,false alarm..I did put a new fitting in it just to make sure...
I am sure after all that time you spent it gets jealous when you are not tinkering. Hence the little drip, just enough to pull you back !!
Yeah,I think it is jealous of Junior too..Even though I drive BadBoy most everyday,working on the farm I tend to use Junior because it is easier for my much overweigth (150 pound ) lab to get in and out of and easier to load/unload bags of pecans in and out of...here is Junior (350 chevy,350 turbo tranny,divorced gmc transfer case,gmc 1/2 ton axles )
