Cj Selling the Jeep to start the next project

Jeep runs great. Cruises 50 mph on the highway no problem will run 65-70 but lets face it thats not what its intended for. I usually backroad.

I have a 1982 Jeep CJ5 Laredo

All U-joints recently replaced
All front bearings replaced

Smittybuilt XRC 8 Winch

5 point race seats
Custom Roll Cage
Lockable Console
4-Speed with Lo-Lo Range

Plenty of stuff I'm leaving off i'm sure.
Specs 1982 Jeep CJ-5 Laredo 4.2L specs, performance and photo (since middle 1981 for North America U.S.

The pics were last year at a oklahoma state university car show featuring black and orange vehicles so I had detailed it pretty well. I've put a couple hundred dusty dirt road miles on it since so it needs a washing but it is still identical to the pics.

As far as damage goes the bars are scratched from brush, trees, and the occasional rock. There is a small rust spot under the windshield (typical for these) and without some major body work (taking glass out, fixing with bondo, repainting, reinstalling glass) its not worth messing with to me until it gets a lot worse. And I keep it in the garage out of the rain.

I've broken a few U-Joints and finally figured out that it was caused by some loose u-bolts between the rear axle and spring which was allowing some axle twist under load and pinching the needle bearings. Once I tightened the bolts it hasn't had issue. Also broke a factory motor mount so I replaced all the motor, tranny, and body mounts with polyeurethane ones. When the motor mount broke the fan went into the radiator so it has a small pin hole that was repaired. I wore out the front driver side outer bearings and I think they were original so I replaced them.

Let's see.... I can't think of anything else at the moment that's been broken but I'm sure there has been something.

This jeep is very well maintained and has 4,000 miles on the odometer since the full professional engine rebuild. Ready to go today.
