|CJ-John||Yes factory tach and clock, the clock doesn't work but I may try and locate another. took it out for a drive last night. it wanders a bit but I'll check tie rod ends today and order a new steering stabilizer. Motor has good power and I do think it's a granny low first gear! 2nd thru 4th are all that's needed on the road (1st is to lower to bother with) I'm going to work on it's road manners 1st. long before it's off road stuff. So far so good!|

Glad you finally got it. Keep posting updates and pics. Looks to be in very nice shape. Also see the factory tach I think in the dash.

|CJ-John||Finally it shows up now the fun begins! Started by changing the tires and wheels, checked brakes as I went. Front brakes shot, right front ball joints gone. I got the ball joints replaced, I have to wait until tomorrow for the right rotors and pads. pulled the old wiring left over from the plow setup. pulled the hard top off. Now it's starting to look like the toy it's to be!|

|CJ-John||Well they tell me it's in Chicago waiting to be delivered by next Thursday not so bad! Now they hit me for another $50. so a total of $175. over quote (should be called a guess) Still better than breaking down on the interstate! updates as they come in.|

Well good luck. I wish people would live up to their word a little more but that is part of life.
I'm sure you are ready to have that dude home.

|CJ-John||Yes I thought about the carb issue, I'm not sure how much it will act up. I have driven the mountains a couple of times, yes there something else. I'm not worried about the up hills it's going down that worries me! This jeep has lived it's whole life at 8,000ft. So I may have to rejet along the way or run with the choke on a little. I'm still hoping the broker comes through for me.|

One thing to think about is the elevation will be I'm guessing 7-9000 feet. Denver is 5k or so and by the time you get into Kansas you are way on down there. I am not sure how that will be on the carb.

|CJ-John||Well it's looking more and more like a road trip. A word of advice check into shipping before you buy out of state. The quote seemed good but then the broker does not seem to be able to get any truckers to take the job. So I see 1850 miles of bliss in my future. But at least I'll get my jeep home at last!|

|CJ-John||If the trucker cannot get it before then I have a ride to Colorado on the 20th of this month so I'll go out and drive it back then. I'm very frustrated with the broker I contracted with he say's because of it's location none of the haulers are interested in it. So I'm trying to get it to Denver Tuesday and get it shipped from there! Any Denver forum members willing to have it in their driveway for a couple of days? John|

|Dempsey||When you think you will have it home?|

Waiting for my CJ7
I'm still waiting fro my CJ to be shipped and or I fly to Colorado and drive it out! So the only thing I can work on are my new Dura trac's and the used wheels I have ready for it. I like the old style stuff so here they are. And here's my jeep sitting 1850 miles away! can you say road trip?
