New Addition
 
brought her home today :D from Maryland
Yep, we've added to the fleet: '75 CJ
She's a beauty.....(will post pics soon)
As soon as we were in the driveway, my husband was looking her over and making his list of general maintenance and upgrades (I hope he doesn't melt the American Express card :eek: ). This Jeep will be the show pony of sorts, while we continue to modify & wheel the other two.

I'm tickled pink!!!!!!and the hubby's just grinning!!!!!

Very cool. Congrats. Keep us updated.

Nice, but is it a 75 or a 73 as your sig says? Dana 44 rear? OR do you now have 2 CJ's?

Texapple 01-08-2006 01:03 PM

I was just seeing if you were paying attention :D ...oops!
We were told it was a '73, but the title states 1975.
As for the rear end, I think it's a 44, but what do I know? Frank's out there under it right now. Remember, he's the mechanical 1/2 of this gig, I'm into the "cool factor"

Allright Frank we need more facts man. :D What kind of CJ is it? 5, 7, or 8? Does it have the 302 or the 258 etc... These are the things we need man......:D

I'm glad to see some CJ action in here.

Let's have some specs!!

Texapple 01-09-2006 07:53 PM

ok, ok!!!! :D You know Frank's sitting here laughing :D
I can tell you some things:
CJ5 - rebuilt 258 & 3 speed transmission - fiberglass tub - Dana 44 rear & 30 front - 31" BFG M/T - rock crawler wheels - soft top and doors
manual steering & brakes (boy, have I been spoiled)

it's pretty plain, but pretty none the less

Sounds like you guys have another nice project started there. It is nice to find the glass tub, I 'm sure you have the same rust problems in Jersey that we have here in PA. Have fun with it.

Thanks
I'll have to be careful and make sure that he spends as much time under my TJ :D I was promised a raised belly skid and an atlas transfer case!

I guess painting the house will have to wait a while longer...........lol
