The CJ as promised. "It has AMC 360 bored .040 over. Pumping out like 400 horsepower!!" He takes it mudding and to the dunes. It's got locking diffs and a brand new lift

The factory windshield will just collapse in the event of a roll over, that is why they make kits that tie it down to the body or frame

Nice, my uncle used to have this old CJ7. Another uncle had a CJ5, but I don't have any pics of that one.

It's a beast! I jumped when I first heard him start it up. They've taken it the drags before and topped out near 200, no joke

Dang that's old. I'd love to see a war era jeep in person

I can understand the newer jeeps having more built windshields and roll bars

I put the bars back in so i can run the bikini top. It was different havin em out but I felt kinda vulnerable. Plus the windshield had a little wiggle room with em off.

On a side note, I got stuck for the first time today since I got my license a year ago. It was in a little (like 7' square) mud pit about 3 foot deep with a couple of really deep ruts. It was the ruts that caused the belly pan to catch. Made me realllly want my lift and tires. Or at least locking diffs. #stockjeepprobs (<- joke. I hate hashtags)

Got out unassisted after I made the 2 chicks and guy with me get out. I was thinkin somethin was weird cuz I had gotten through it fine before with more water in it. But I was by myself in the jeep.

Actually you are wrong kind of.... No one can argue that the weakest point in the stock cage is the windshield. The spreader bars are not useless but they are not exactly useful either... They generally in a roll over bend downward to be at about a 35-45* angle. I haven't seen a roll over without them so I can not attest to how it is without them, but I would assume that the windshield would buckle even more. Your main point of protection in the factory cage is the bar with the sound pods/bar and the back section.

Actually you're all wrong.

The A pillar is made to collapse, reducing the force of the crash. Sadly, this puts tall peoples heads into the ground. Facts are that the spreader bars prevent the windshield from laying in your lap, and only allow it to partially collapse. If you want to bitch about them not being strong enough, DOM costs 2-4 bucks a foot for a 20 foot stick at your local shop, you can cut and slap on your own spreaders for 50 bucks and have tube left over to reenforce more of the cage. Otherwise, you can buy kits like the BTF sports cage or various other trail cages for a few hunnys.



Let's stop being immature and arguing about the stock roll cage, please...

the DOM tubing is cheap but the welder isn't

The welder is free, it's at my house

Local buddy was gettin his DOM at 2 bucks a foot... online its 7. I can probably get from him though. That's my project after these axles are done. Cage and tube fenders will be made.

Dandy. I actually get to work on it now that I am on summer vacation. Last two days I have been fighting my new d30 I picked up, trying to get rusty bolts off of everything basically. Has to cut a lot of stuff Almost done though. Gota clean it up, plate one of the coil pads because it has a rusting hole in it. Otherwise it's alright. One shaft is missing a U joint cap, but I am swapping basically everything I can from my jeep over and keeping the other parts for spares. Sell the carrier and gear set from my old one. Anyways I need to finish my cross member, so I will probably notch it and maybe go set it up on saturday I am thinking. Not sure on the day yet. One that's done I can check what my pinion angle is going to be and measure for a DS, and order that so my guy can make it. Then basically get the 8.8 finished prepped, weld the brackets, install all the parts, paint both axles, install all my stuff from my d30 over, install my sye, driveshaft, put my brake parts on the 8.8, bolt it all in.

Thought id give my 2 cents.

I've rolled my jeep.
No busted windshield or windows.
And those "weak bars " save my life. That and a seat belt.

If anybody knows about the stock cage it's me. People give the stock cage sh@@ but it's not as weak as people think. Itll save you. And that's the point. Not the strongest but it works. There is better. But something better than nothing.

And I've been around.
Just not here

Anybody know if the hinge pins are replaceable? Just the pins inside the hinge, not the whole door assembly. I snapped one off today and would like to get it fixed back up soon.

Guys I got a boyfriend who's been begging me for the last month (haven't even been going out a week yet) to take him wheeling with me next time I go. He even offered to make me breakfast and a sandwich for lunch the day we go. Lol

Why not take him? It'd be fun. Plus FREE breakfast and lunch!!

He's lucky tho. I only know of one girl at my school that enjoys mudding. She'll bring friends along but you can tell she likes it much more

Found replacment pins. Saves buying the whole hinge assembly. Just have to press out the old ones and press in new ones. Or hammer them in. Whatever works should have them by Monday
