Looks great. I'm picking up a 75 CJ5 this weekend for a resto mod project.

sounds like me and my 79 CJ5. I am constantly buying/selling/trading on jeepforum/craigslist. I once bought a 79 Cj7 frame complete with engine and axles for $250. It had a nice set of wheels, tires, and a lift. So i took off all the items i wanted off and parted out the rest. At the end of it all i got 4 aluminum wheels, a radiator, 4 brand new 32" tires, a dropped pitman arm, and a 4" 4wd lift and still had $750 after stelling the engine, axles, and frame.

I really enjoyed your story and you have a really nice jeep.

So if I paid you $1750 for it you would be $250 ahead and could build another one And it would be a CJ5 to be proud of!

interesting Franken-jeep...
Either you are incredibly fast or have lots of time on your hands. In either case, I am jealous.

Well in the last few day I have been working on building a new front bumper. I am into the steel $100.00 but I bought more them I needed. Also out of that steel price I bought enough to build a mounting system for the winch cradle to the front of the CJ5. I bought the 8000 warn winch and cradle that has never been used from a guy for $400.00. That puts me into this CJ5 a total of $2000.00 now. This time I did not do a step by step of me building the bumper and winch cradle mounting system though. So here is what it looks like after paint before I mount it on the CJ5.

I finally got around to finishing off the bumper a few days ago. The winch stuck out some from the bumper so I built a stinger to guard it. Went to a friend shop and borrowed the use of his mandrel bender for a morning to bend up the stinger and the tubing for the tow bar.
