Hey everyone. Thanks for tuning in.
to start, my dad bought this cj7 from a guy on c.l. few years ago . It was in oOK condition Stock with full doors and hard top. I then bought it off of him . since then, i have pretty much dedone/doing everything but drive train.
1982Cj Jeep Cj7
no power anything 258/4 speed
1st things first, got it running and driving
took it out to play... and twisted the rear drive shaft like a pretzel.
sinceI needed an new rear drive shaft, i decided to just lift it.
Aftera lot of research, I decided to do a spring over axle set up, high steer, and TJ front springs. Couldn't be happier with the results. I
then I had some drive shafts made to fit. Heavy duty . With the U bolt style yoke.
I put floors in it and new aluminum diamond plate on the outside.
With the new wheels and 35's, the steering SUX found a complete steering box, hoses, pump and steering shaft (since spline is diffredifferent from power and manual) in process of swapping that out now.
Switched over to an HEI dizzy, urithaine body bushings, rattle can Matte Blue for easy trail rash fixing.
Next in line, twin stick conversion for ttransfer case. Since its onroad/off road. I'm going with limited slip diffs and not lockers yet. I'm still on factory Dana 30 and AMC 20 wfactory 3.42 Gears. The thing does fine off road in low side so no use in changing just yet. I do have a 10.25 With locker for rear. Just looking for dana 60 for front at decent price
ill try to keep this updated as much as i can.don't get on internet mucH. . I did just start twitter and instagram follow me @stable_chaos
