Come visit us in the CJ forum! Good bunch of people that are more than happy to help. Fortunately CJs are very simple to fix and one of the tools required is a hammer!

Quadratec, Morris, are good sources for parts, also RockAuto. Then there are tons of aftermarket parts... You could literally build a new jeep from the ground up with all the parts out there. Craigslist has always been my best friend...

And like WindKnot said, this forum is probably one of the best sources of info for jeeps out there.

Please post pics and write-ups of your progress. It will help you and others as you go along.
