opinions which to buy 1980 or 1985 cj7
I have the opportunity to buy either a 1980 or 1985 cj7, but are unsure which one. Both are good priced. They both have the 258 six, but the 80 is a 3 speed and the 85 is a 4 spd. I have not seen them in person and neither person that owns them can tell me anything mechanical info on what the transfer case or transmissions are. I have a good guess they both have model 20 rears and Dana 30 fronts. Gears I have NO clue.
What do you guys think which I should buy?
Is the 3 speed better than the 4 speed?
Last did they all come with Dana 300's, 208 or Dana 20's? I thought 20's went out in 1979? I could be wrong though.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!!
