Morning all ! Iíve been absent from this site since I sold my Ď78 CJ5 back in 2017. I was lucky enough to score a sweet Ď81 CJ7 from a good friend. He bought it from a fellow he knew back in 2013, put a 2Ē suspension lift, new shocks, new BFG ATís (31) along with new Aluminum wheels. He drove it occasionally and then parked it.
304 transplant but they kept the stock SR4 transmission. I will say the beach and streets are all this Jeep has seen and will see. The SR4 is running smooth for now. When the time comes Iíll upgrade.
Honestly I prefer the narrow track axles, gives a much cleaner look. I like the tires staying inside of the body profile. I put G2 one piece axles along with 3.73 gears. Dumped the crappy cracked hard top but kept the doors.
Leaks-yeah we got leaks. Replaced the rear main so no more brown puddles, the. Replaced the ďletís start leaking since nothing else isĒ steering box.
Water pump and radiator are next since the other day both dcid d to give up the ghost within days of each other
Oh yeah, only paid $8000 and showing 89000 on odometer !!!
Yeah, it is a sickness
