Thanks for all the info on the dauntless. I only have an 86 CJ-7, cause I am 6'5" tall. I can't fit into the driver seat of a CJ-5, maybe a seat mod can solve that? Anyways, excellent thread, thank you! I want to get another CJ one day, and have it be a pre '74 so I don't have to smog it.

Best regards,

CJ65

My dad bought this cj brand new in 1966. It was the second V6 CJ5 in Yakima. The first was delivered
to be my dad's, but when he arrived to pick it up, it had almost 200 miles on it. Everybody and their
brother wanted to drive it. My dad was planning a trip to Montana hunting and had planned to take
the cj. He had traded his 1964 cj5 in on the new one. He told the dealership he did not want the one
everyone had driven, so they let him take it to Montana for the hunt, and when he got back, this cj
(originally white) was waiting for him with close to zero miles. He kept it until 1986 when he sold it to
his brother who gave it to his grandson (must have hated him). The boy rolled it almost immediately.



This jeep is a 1957 cj5 I built in the early 80's. I put the 225 dauntless in it and kept the 538's.
I replaced the tub with one from a 1972. A guy in Yakima named Jim Craw bobbed the fenders
(same as on my dad's). Notice the way he carried the factory shape all the way through the bob.
I always thought these were the best looking fenders. With the v6 and the 538's, you could say it
was perky.
