hi there i love jeeps as most of you do...
these are the jeeps that are up and running now in the family, ill give you folks some info on them and pix for fun (not on the wrangler cos this is a CJ thread)
CJ8 is my dads but my daily-driver(he uses a land rover), the wrangler is mine and the white CJ5 is my dads,
the CJ8 is siting on 36" mudders and has is mostly stock, d30 in front, amc20 in back and 258 in the hood, i love this car so much !
(the red CJ5 on the trailer is a organ donor for a 2012 rally jeep)
this CJ5 one is not in the family any more but I'm doing my best to get it back.
this pix is taken in 1987, it was my dads til 88 when my mom made him sell the jeep ...
he competed in one formula off-road competition in 1987 (if you don't know it already its an Icelandic 4x4 sport (YouTube it ))
the fuel filler cap wasn't thigh enough so fuel+hot exhaust = fire
now this CJ5 is a crazy thing ... so amazing and so depressing at the same time .. it has a 350 SBC from a 71' camaro, hedman hedders and a edelbrock 1406 carb and on the back of that engine is a 4 speed saginaw with a husts shifter, its on the original axels and 33" tires.
we built this car for rallying this summer(2011) and ended in 2nd place in the overall championship in the SUV class
hopefully you liked what you saw and read.
my spellin, grammar and vocabulary isn't the best (that's what you get for having English as 3rd language)
91' jeep wrangler renegade with a 360AMC V8
2 3Bs...You're killing me. Been wanting one to restore for a couple of years now, but haven't found one in the shape I want...in other words, they have a frame left...haha. Nice score you have there!
Thanks! It still hasn't sunk in that I have a pair of CJ3B's!
We have the red one running already. Which was more for grins and giggles than anything, they are both going to be tore down and rebuilt from the ground up. And no, I'm not keeping them both. My dad is going to get a heck of a deal on one of them.
Ok, the week after I bought these two, I bought two more.
I bought these two the week after I bought my first two.
The blue 1961 CJ3B is undergoing a restoration (Almost to rolling chassis), the CJ5 rolling chassis behind it is for parts. I'm using the body from the maroon 3B (about all that was good on it) on my 1961 and we beat around on the red 1953 CJ3B.

Got this CJ like this, the guy before me did a great job. Ironically we were in the same Jeep group over ten years ago. Love this Jeep.

My dad wanted a stock CJ, except the carburetor issues when he goes up in altitude in the Idaho mountains. Runs good on the howell TBI.
