In over my head.. Lol
I just bought a 72 cj5 that needs some serious body work and possibly some clutch work. I was told the engine runs good. Anyways, I am a COMPLETE NOVICE when it comes to any thing mechanical with vehicles. I have owned a cj7 and an 87 wrangler and they had no mechanical issues at all, i bought them already repaired. So I am no where near a mechanic, so I have two manuals (Jeep cj rebuilders Manual by Moses ludel and a chilton manual). So I'm sure I will have a ton of questions.
All I am really trying to do is get this jeep up and running. Nothing fancy. It's going to be my "beach jeep".. So wish me luck and ANY input would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks, Brent
Ps. Pics coming soon

Working on vehicles is a lot more intimidating than it is difficult.
As long as it's not your daily driver you should be fine as long as you keep track of all the fasteners and make note of any suspension or timing settings BEFORE disassembly.
