1980 CJ7...My new toy

I just picked up a 1980 CJ7 with 103k original miles. The windshield frame is roached, but the rest of the Jeep is solid. I got it just under a week ago and have already collected a few parts to start building it.

The steering wanders all over the place, so that's going to be my first mod. I lucked out and found everything for a power steering swap for $100 along with a stock air cleaner box and shroud. I also ordered new ball joints and got the RR heavy duty tie rod kit.

This morning I'm getting a tilt steering wheel, front grill, and who knows what else 😉. I already located a windshield frame that also has the wiper motor and associated parts.

I've got a lot of plans for this toy! I'm going to get a complete soft top, 2.5" YJ OME lift and run 33" tires, convert it to FI, and add A/C. I am sure there will be a lot more stuff along the way!!!

Stay tuned...Eagle One
