I'm not sure about the 4wd, I kept mine 2wd. I don't go off road in my DJ5, I use my HUMMER for that. Don't give up on that DJ5 even if you don't go with the 4wd, they are awesome Jeeps. Check out what I did with mine. If you would like to see more pics, go to facebook, search DJ5 postal jeep.

Yes, I used Aervoe #987A spray paint(rattle can). Just take it one panel at a time. Be sure to allow lots of time for prep, lots of sanding, I used 80, than 100 grit sand paper.Call Alan for the paint, he has the best price, and ships fast.(609) 953-1003

well that would for sure make me think twice about getting rid of my postal. How long did it take you to complete the sanding?

I just took my time with it, most of the work got done on the weekends. The more time you put into sanding, will show with a nice finish. Go to FACEBOOK and post pictures under DJ5 POSTAL JEEP.

will do once i get home. Luckily jeepforum isnt blocked on the work computers :P

You ever gone on any trails with your dj? i have always thought that its actually a pretty good little truck with the limitted slip rear 44 even if it is 2wd. Still gonna have to get myself a cheap jeep for wheeling though

DJ in MI

I am a new DJ owner in Michigan. It is titled as an '83, but has a I-6 engine.

I was also looking for a parts list so I could find parts like brakes that are common to other vehicles.

we just picked this DJ-5 Dispatcher recently. Its slated to be rebuilt and used as our shop truck. Just traded a 258 for a rebuilt F-134 to install in it!

Those old jeeps are cool. There's one in a lean-to on my way home from work. Been there for years.

I love DJ-5's I'm looking to buy one. Just waiting until one with a I6 in it comes up for sale under a grand. I would love to put like a 2 or 3 inch lift on it. I have seen them done but I cant find a kit anywhere, does anyone know where I can find one? Thanks. Also I want you all to know I'm very jealous of all you DJ owners!
