Well i started this post back in 2007 and now i can finally show my CJ8!! bought it a couple months ago.. lots of bells and whistles. Cleaning up some things and she will be ready to go!! 1982 check my profile for specs if you are interested.
so after you saw what i had to do to it, are you glad you didn't trade your tj ???
Ha ha ha, yes I am glad. Looks like it needed a lot more work that I would have thought. So instead I sold my TJ and bought a scrambler with its own problems. But I guess that is part of being a CJ owner.. Fixing stuff.
Enjoy it, and nice work so far. Wish I knew how to weld like you, or weld period. It would be a very handy trade to have owning one of these old rigs.
