4Jeepn Looks like an early production 79, as I think I see the roll bar bolts along the rear sides.

celticthor Did the trade, here are some pics of it

celticthor The 1st thing I am going to do is remove the body lift, since after checking it again it doesn't look like I will have any issues running 35's without it

4Jeepn I would recommend to replace the body lift, with a 1" or stock spacers.

celticthor According to the owner it has a 4" skyjacker lift, 3" body lift and a 2" shackle lift. I am going to go do the trade today, I drove it on Friday and the only issue that I would need to correct is buying a longer clutch rod since the owner just welded another rod to it and it sometimes catches when I push the clutch in

4Jeepn why does it have 9" of lift for 35's? What kind of lift. Also the 79 would be a narrow track, which means the tires will tuck in side the body. I like the wider axles which where early 80's versions.

jgano23 the biggest thing to worry about is rust. if it is rust free, you are off to a very good start. i would also make sure that the frame is straight and in good shape.

Looking To Get a '79 CJ-7

I am a long time Jeep owner ('77 FJ Chief, '98 XJ Rockcrawler) but I have always wanted a CJ. I have a opportunity to trade my 1998 Chevy K3500 dually for a rust free (really, I am also a aircooled VW owner so I know how to find rust) '79 CJ-7 running a 9" lift and 35" tires. I don't have a need for a huge dually (all I haul is my 35lb dog)

I am just wondering what issues I need to look for
