1973 DJ5, and i have no clue where to start
Hey all, My name is Spencedaddy, and i've never owned a jeep, and i'm going to buy one very soon as my second....truck...thing...so i'm buying a DJ5, thats right, a DJ5, right hand drive, i have the ability to purchase one of these things with about 70k on it, pretty well maintained, not driven hard......
i need some advice though,
what should i look for for problems
how much should i expect to pay
i want this jeep pretty badly, and its owned by a close friend of my family
and i'm going to do something very radical to it
something that might make some jeep owners a little angry
i'm wanting to do a swap with the motor of an AMC Javelin, since its an AMC motor, put in some new gears, small racing zrated tires, and up the transmissions ante
i'm going to make a muscle jeep
i've always loved the look of jeeps, but being a muscle car guy, currently a muscle TRUCK guy, i don't EVER go off road, and have no intentions to do so, ever, i love my asphalt. So i thought i would do something fairly radical, and i'm sorry if it gets me a bad rep on the forums, but i had to ask somewhere.
So where do i start boys, price wise?
i'll be buying this thing june 4th, and then driving it from Albuquerque to Nashville.
