Hi from another newbee!
|10-20-2007 03:34 PM|
i would ask over at earlycj.com/forums but i know some of then over there cut out part of the wheel well and moved the seat back. i can tell you that im 6' 1" and i ahve no problem once im behind the wheel, that hard part is getting in b/c it is lifted and the steering wheel sticks out
however a CJ7 may be a better option. i would personally find a CJ5 near you and get in it, see how it feels, oyu dont need to test drive it to know it wil be WAY too cramped
btw my 6' 3" uncle can drive it just fine, but idk how it would be if it was ur DD

|shameless||another thing about CJ5's, I'm 6'5" how much room does the old cj5's have in the drivers seat area? I have a feeling that I'm going to be better off with a cj7 or a yj. I've even considered an early model bronco or scout, but I'd rather stay jeep.|

|shameless||thanks for the welcome nregas1, glad to hear theres plenty of info. I'm still leaning toward a vintage mb or a willys cj versus a newer one. I guess its just going to come down to whatever deals I come across when the time is right.|

I'm seth, I dont yet have a jeep. I used to have a 95 wrangler but it met its fate between two other vehicles. I'm joining so that I can do more homework on what kind of jeep I want to get. I think I want an old willys but at the same time you cant get as many parts for them as you can the newer jeeps. I hope to learn as much as possible here. thanks for the read!
