I'm looing at buying a simular one it's a 79. Are the decals on the hood standard like the one's in the pic. I thought their was some stripes across the hood and rocker stripes.

I don't know about the stripes mud. The jeep use to be brown, so maybe that's all the previous owner put back on
Div. it's in pretty good shape. Hard top has a piece missing on the passenger side between the door and window, rear hatch and a spot on the drivers door has a rust spot and the drivers floor pan is rusted. Other than that its in pretty good shape. Good platform to build on

No problem...had a 1979 Renegade CJ5 for 3 months before I sold it back in 1994...Ugliest damn thing I ever had...never did take pics of it. It was Green with the orange, brown, yellow Renegade package...
I bought it from a Repo man I worked with at the time when I was in college. Had no 1st gear or reverse (t15 3 speed), but with the 304 in it, I started it out in 2nd, and then slammed her to 3rd. More rust holes in it than swiss cheese...I don't even miss it after all these years...lol!

Thanks Jake. I think I like the cj better than the other 2. There's just something about it

That does look nice! Have you wheeled it yet?

Not yet. I've been doing a few things to make it run better (motorcraft carb swap And HEI). The 4wd isn't working in high range. I guess there's a clip on the transfercase that's broke. I'm putting a twin stick on it, then ill hit the trails
