In 1972 I bought a 1970 CJ5, stock with the Buick 225 V6 in it.
By the time I sold it 3+ years later it had a Paxton supercharger on it. The transmission was a Ford 4 speed top loader. The front axle was replaced with a Dana 44. There was a lot of other small modifications also, but I have forgotten a lot of them.
Used to take it our almost every weekend and beat the crap out of it an it never left me stranded or broke down.

When you aired the tires down, it would go just about any place that you pointed it in. THEM WERE THE DAYS............
I had extra leafs added to the springs and also had them re-arched. It was a real danger driving down the highway, real squirrely in the wind, but boy was it ever was fun.......

There were jeeps in our family, but this was my first one that I owned and rebuilt. 1984 J10.[IMG][/IMG] Before that, while I was home from college, I bought a 1978 CJ5 Renegade with 304 V8 off a repo man for $1100...it was in sad shape, but I sold it a week later for $2500.
Since then, have always had at least one jeep in the garage...
