Well this is my 79 CJ-7.




I traded a 91 toyota MR2 turbo for it. I think I got a beeter deal. I live in AZ so not having AC sucks (not that I have ever had a car with working AC) but I plan on putting AC in next summer and a hard top.

I also had some ??s on brakes. right know it has manual brakes. I want to put power brakes in it. I work at a junk yard and have a wagoneer and a cherokee for parts. Does any body know If any componets will bolt in or any mods I can do to get better brakes from what I got?

Thanks Chris

There is also the option of putting a Ford econoline van brake setup in there. Some lincolns are also compatable or I have even heard of putting corvette master cylinders and boosters in.

I think you may be able to put a yj booster on this thing....I put a 1995 yj double diaphram on my 89 yj......I have driven manual brakes and as you know thats a completely different ball game especially depending on how old the booster is on your yours.My 95 yj brake booster will lock up the 31inch tires with ease.Stay safe and jeep on,nice jeep!

Clean jeep you definately got the better end of the trade.. there are many options for changing brakes over and depending on what rim and tire size you want to run
