Norfolk VA check in

Well I'll share my Jeep experience so far. I was back home in Wi on leave last July and decide I was going to buy a Jeep. So I turn to Craig's list and find a '85 CJ-7 with a SBC swap 6" lift on 36" super swampers, 4 speed, with 4 wheel disc brakes. Had to have it. So me and my brother go look at it test drive it, come back the next day and get it. So leaving the sellers house I get to the first stop 1/2 mile down the road. Brother waves me on saying it's clear, I get about have way out and a Honda goldwing comes flying down the hill so not knowing what a V8 in a CJ-7 really means I hit it and turn left. Well as you can imagine it went up on two on the drivers side I some how got it back on 4 but the bounce sent it on the passenger side. All my new owner excitement just gone felt horrible didn't get hurt but felt defeated. Now I had it shipped to VA Beach to OAJ getting it fixed up and more manageable for me. Lowered to 4" lift, swapped to 33x12.50, rear diff was welded so replaced whole axle to unlock the rear. Just waiting on body work then I'm ready for round 2.
