cj5 for winter project
I just bought a cj5. this one may be a candidate for the worst cj of the month. I will post pics when i get it home after he gets the title for me. UGH It has no roll bar, I have no clue where the tall peterbuilt seats came from but passenger isn't even bolted down. The front drive shaft is in the back, the front axle makes weird clunk when turned by hand, the old multispray painted pealing wheels are original, 1.5 inch shackle lift by a terrible welder, home made tailgate aluminum plate over wood frame. Wiring harness is not a harness but individual wires strung wherever, lights don't work(NONE) No back seat at all, and the worst part there is no stereo or speakers at all. Good thing shop has one as it won't be leaving there for a while anyway. But hey it has a smooth running v6, good solid frame, and for the most part a solid tub. I can do it. It is pretty much original but won't be when I am done. going to have a tilt wheel as I hate the solid shaft. will get a good 3 inch liftbody work and paint and I will take every bolt out of the drive train for all new bearings bushings and seals because we cross water often.
