77 Cj
going to look at a CJ today... friend knew iv been lookin for a jeep and called me.. dunno if its a 5 or 7 yet.. but the guy is asking $2500 or is willin to trade for my 2000 neon... (which gives me all kinda probs be glad to get rid of) Doesnt have same motor in it.. guy put a 360 in it.. ill let yall know in a few hours how it looks.. but what yall think good price? or good trade? car has 120k miles.. dunno on jeep yet.. but from what friend told me its still a Solid jeep... gotta check it myself thou.. (sry for spellin/grammer errors dont wanna fix it nice and neat atm :) )

went and looked at it.. 77 CJ5 the body has no rust whatsoever.. the frame has 1 small patch about the size of a dime.. that can be fixed easy enuff...

Motor in it is a 360 with only 3500 miles on it supposedly.. couldnt drive it today cause guy has keys and was at work.. his wife was there.. Guy got married and has to sell his jeep.. almost fill sry for him but can be good for me :D

How fair of a trade would yall think at 00 neon with 120k miles on it is? going back tomorrow to drive it.. 4w is supposed to work great also..

make sure you cheack every gear and all the 4wd gears (off road of course not on pavement)
i think 2K is a good price as long as it runs well, has a title, is registered, passes inspection and doesnt shake and rattle and make weird sounds!

BTW pictures are worth a thousand words, and could save u as much in cash!

JeepWoL 08-13-2007 11:18 PM

took this pic today.. isnt much of a close up but was in hurry... guy gets off work tomorrow at 5:30 and ill get to drive it then..

debruins 08-14-2007 09:23 AM

looks good, but really its hard to tell how everything ia even from a good picture, you need to hear it and really look at the while frame and mkae sure everything works!

btw is a great place too

forums and lots of info!

Jeep for a Neon... No brainer!!!

Worst case senario, you can part it out for more than 2500!

If it's gonna be a dd, you better consider the gas mileage difference between the two, though.

JeepWoL 08-14-2007 10:46 AM

ITS A JEEP Screw the Gas mileage rofl... here in WV i live on one of the worst mts around to come off of in winter... need a 4x4 that can make it... dont think this jeep will have a single problem :)

JeepWoL 08-14-2007 04:40 PM

anyone got a link for a place to get replacement hardware for a soft top? guy has the soft top but hardware is missing... wanna know how much thats gonna cost me first... but all i can find is both hardware and top.. cant find just hardware anywhere... any ideas?

Dare2BSquare 08-14-2007 05:20 PM

Go to Teal J's house in oregon and just take what you want!!! :D

(see the door bolt thread if you don't know what I'm talkin about)

JeepWoL 08-14-2007 05:59 PM

rofl i really dont wanna drive to Oregon for em :D

u go get em for me then bring em to me in WV :cool:

Dare2BSquare 08-14-2007 06:11 PM

btw where in WV are you?

JeepWoL 08-14-2007 07:00 PM

fayette southern part of wv..

just woundering... anyone here have a cj5 with a 360 in it?? it has plenty of power i would hope.... :D

JeepWoL 08-16-2007 10:27 AM

well guy backed outta trade at last min... somehow he talked his new wife into allowing him to keep the jeep..............

mabe someday ill finally find another jeep to use for a DD...........

around here in wv finding one without a crapload of rust = almost impossible.....:crash: :crash: :crash:

debruins 08-16-2007 12:16 PM

haha in WV, think about in maine and mass and NH
and thats too bad, but i feel for the guy if it was b/c his wife was making him sell it

JeepWoL 08-16-2007 02:34 PM

hehe i felt bad for him too... but that wasnt gonna stop me from gettin it heheeh:rofl:

The worst thing here is atleast in my area it seems peeps think "screw it just so it goes" they seem to abuse em till they break em then get rid of em...

The ones that do take care of em wont get rid of em... starting to think imma have to go a few states down to get a good one... fly down and drive back... just hate the thoughs of gettin something before giving it a good look at...:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:
