1973 Cj5
 
I just got my second Jeep and figured I would start a thread to keep track of the progress. My first Jeep 1983 CJ7 so this is my first CJ5. I am pretty inexperienced so I use the thread a lot for advice.

Thanks for looking. I have learned a lot. I am a total amateur who is learning all the time. Suggestions would be great. It is an every day driver that hits the rocks in Southern California. Thanks for looking at the update!
