Still have my JK, but welcomed a new member to my Jeep family...my 1984 CJ! I have always wanted a CJ and I finally pulled the trigger on one! It's got a 258 with a 4 speed. 84000 original miles. Working a few bugs out though. Mainly gauges that don't work. Oil pressure and temp. Any advice or help is welcomed. Thanks! Hope you like it!

Nice CJ. The light bar reminds me of the one I had years ago.

Does your fuel gauge work? Wiring on the CJ's is started to show its age. I replaced my harness a few years ago but it was toast.

The fuel gauge was the only one that did work! They all work now....I fixed them. I took the light bar off because I didn't want to replace all the old lights. I think I can save the harness....just having to take my time testing/fixing.

Wow. Someone must have fixed it because they are notorious. I didn't have one for years and let's just say I ran out of gas more than once. :rofl:

I don't blame you on the light bar. Just not my thing. I think a couple on the bumper and maybe some on the windshield frame is plenty.

An updated pic. Painted the wheel centers black, bed lined the tub, and it's 50# lighter from all the junk PO added wiring.

Great looking CJ. You going to put the other seats in, or just leave it with a driver's seat?

That is a beautiful CJ. Very Jealous. CJ's have always been my favorite Jeep.

Cool CJ. I miss my 84 CJ7. My kids (now adults and FMF docs) recently told me the best memories they have is the fun we had off roading with gringo (our dog).

Man this thing is sweet! I have a YJ and I really like it, but there's something about the CJ's that I like just a tad better. Great looking rig!

I guess I have always been an outlaw...One drive in my cj7 with the 400 horse 350 might make one out of you too......
