Same here. I'm running 35 x 12.5 Wild Country Radials and I really like them, but need to get my gear ratio straightened out. I'm showing 70 and getting 60. Gas is also guzzling and I can smell it. Running a high idle as well. i feel like I can just see it draining....

Hi! I brought my '77 CJ-7 (Beast) back to DC for the summer and would love to take it out somewhere to give it a good proper introduction to the area. Any events upcoming?

Nice mderick! Some people get upset with 3A windshields on 2A's but I like them and from a functional standpoint, it's a much better design.

But my buddy has a 98 TJ with 33's but only a 4 cylinder with an automatic transmission, he gets about 13-14 highway.

Again not a good average example. How far you driving?
I have to drive approx 70 miles round trip a day on the thruway in New York. So another thing I have to worry about is rust and frame rot

Rubirocks Here's my '82 CJ-7. It's been in storage for almost a year. I'm hoping to get it out of storage this summer and get to fixing a bunch of things on it.





When I first got it:



Specs:
AMC 401, T-18, D-300, Dana 30 Front, AMC 20 Rear. 35" Baja Claws, 4" Lift

duffer Nice pics, nice Jeep Lynn. Also, that's a little deeper water than I like to get into-----

lynn Love your B Duffer.

Looking back through this thread, it looks like my pics of the '71 are no longer visible since Multiply folded.
So here is a re-post of my pics of the '71...

Pre-paint, circa early 1997



A month after paint, at the first Jeep Jamboree ever held in PA


















I sold the '71 in 2007 to a guy who has become a good friend. Here is Don, continuing the abuse:





03-24-2014 08:46 AM
duffer A few pics of the B.






I bought it in 1972 and it has been in a flux field of some sort ever since. It's about to get version number 4 of the small block Chevy (1st was a 62 327, 2nd a 1970 LT1, and the 3rd a 381-and what is in the pictures).
