Tarby Don't let it go for less than $1000...Took me 2 years to get my '72 CJ5 road worthy...I paid $2000 for mine with a twisted and broke frame, wasted clutch, and home-made leaf spring lift...the 304 v8 was mint in it. Was offered $4000 for it...told the guy $5000, being a smart a$$, and he said yes. I declined, I just can't part with it. Been on the road with it since 2008. My wife says she won't listen to me b^^ch if it was she won't let me unload it as long as she is married to

It'll go for a grand quickly.
05-19-2010 10:20 AM
toshpate thanks..getting some calls but nothing yet think for 1000 someone would want it
05-18-2010 10:53 AM
tktj I understand I just saw your avatar on another post and thought how cool your cj was then to see it smashed was a bummer.good luck .i would have loved to have it but i just sold a 97 sahara and used the cash for my 2000 tj. hope you find a good home for it
05-18-2010 10:44 AM
toshpate ha ha no mine is a keeper (BF) that is. I need the cash to fix the is limping along and needing some cash put in it or it will be broken as well.. I would rather fix the CJ but it is too big to be a daily driver or I would in a heart beat
05-18-2010 10:40 AM
tktj Groundhowg is right dont give it up, not a whole lot there to fix really. cjs are classic and worthy wheelers.Stick it out remember boyfriends are a dime a dozen .

toshpate yeppers

GroundHawg non jeepers are funny like that. they don't understand the "everything is replaceable" concept, and the fact that jeeps are unique and in high demand used. it's not uncommon to see the 4.0 engine hit 200k without any special care or mods. cars you crack frames and grenade axles...totaled. sell your car, you get nothing. jeeps. no way. they are worth fixing.

your YJ i bet you could pull more than 2500. it looks great. you could spend 300 on a lift for it, spend 700 on 33" tires, and like 150 bucks on some daylighters and somebody WILL pay like 5 or 6 grand for it because it's modded up a bit and looks good. it's crazy.
04-21-2010 04:19 PM
toshpate ha ha ha yeah he is getting it..he is pricing trading in his mustang for a jeep. he cant believe the resale price on jeeps...I tried to tell him... he doesnt believe I can get 2500 out of my yj...I said it runs, the 4x4 works, has a top...and looks good..just has issues..ha ha oh well....takes a jeeper to know one
04-21-2010 04:15 PM
GroundHawg cool. just tell your bf axles are here, radiator and fluid changes are if you go the "trail rig only" route, i wouldnt even bother with the hood and body damage. there's 3 or 4 jeeps near me that are just tubs a frame and engine lol! but even then, sanding up that body and hittin it with primer is cheap and easy too. your jeep isn't as bad as it looks. you know that. i know that. broken axle is NO EXCUSE to scrap a CJ, let alone a rare CJ Renegade.

people crack frames, blow up heads, ruin tubs...crazy expensive repairs. tell your bf in the wild world of jeeps, engines, tubs, and frames are replaceable parts. an axle replacement isn't bad at all. people dont think twice about dropping thousands on a new car if they wreck the old one. jeeps you dont need to. the more you trash a jeep and the longer you have them, the better they get.

worse comes to worse remind're the female. the boss. what you say GOES. that's what my girlfriend tells me
04-21-2010 03:45 PM
toshpate well she is next to a barn ..the guys a jeeper and building a couple himself.. and it isnt rusting too badly yet..I plan on fixing it..just have to convince the bf that it is worth it....
04-21-2010 03:19 PM
GroundHawg just a generalization. sorry ma'am

ok, you have axles. good. that's the hard part. tell you friend to not get rid of them and save a little. you'll have some change soon enough. then just put them on or have your friend do it.

radiators are cheap, even new. grab one of those and change out all the fluids since it's been hanging out in that field in the weather and you're golden.

one thing i'd do immediately though is get it out of that field. no need to rust out good parts or get water into things that'll give you problems later. also, outlaws might find it and steal parts or the whole thing thinking it's scrapped and forgotten. tow it into a garage or barn, or even just close to a house.

i promise you, if you scrap that you'll regret it. eventually you'll get some $$$ after it's gone and you'll be all "damn! if i only had my Renegade still." i have seen it twice now. people get rid of jeeps, then 6 months down the road they regret it. you've still got a nice Renegade sitting there. she just needs a little TLC. keep it out the weather and she'll be there waiting when you get some extra money.

toshpate well my friend has axles there that already have lockers on it. the roll cage wasnt damaged nothing but the front clip was damaged actually and the radiator. I know I could get it rolling well under a grand...just broke a$$ right butt

and I am not a man or a dude but that is ok
04-20-2010 11:29 PM
GroundHawg dude i wouldnt sell that thing. take off that axle, cut the cage off, and pull off all the body panels. you can get rear axles at junk yards. get a D44 or Ford 8.8. slap that on. you can then weld up your own cage homemade. as for the body panels, leave them off. just sand and paint up the frame. if you can do this yourself total it'll be under a grand and a good summer project. you'll have a sweet "trail only" rig to start off with.

do it man. you know you want to. all you REALLY need is an axle. no big deal. i wouldn't send a jeep to the muddy trail in the sky over an axle that probably sucked in the first place.

get yourself a scrapped 8.8 or if you've got some loot, a D60. bam! driveable again

toshpate I have no idea. it actually has a clear title even though insurance did total it out. they gave me 4k for it which went directly to the um ticket I got for wrecking it....stupidity at the utmost..had it towed on a flat bed to a field where it sits..was tarped for a year but then the tarp got ruined. guess make an offer... my friend has a winching trailer that we used that typically carries his back-hoe..could prolly talk him into transporting if and only if someone pays expenses (gas etc.)
04-14-2010 12:42 PM
SBakerUMC how much?
04-14-2010 12:11 PM
VolForce At least you didnt get hurt....the CJ did it's job and protected you (lol).....I do wish you were closer I would love to have something like that..
04-14-2010 12:05 PM
