1981 Jeep CJ7 ...... plan change!!!

Well , my 82 CJ7 got to the point I had it mechanically sound and driving well .... it just needed a lot of tub repair or a tub swap. A local father and son wanted a project for when he turns 16 in a year and a half so I let Rustful Dead go to a new home.

I have found 2 projects to keep me busy though!

More updates as I get some progress .... still in school full time, but I should have a break this summer to sweat it out and make some progress!

The body and frame are solid and this is going to be built to run as a daily driver/trail rig and will eventually get fully restored.

As soon as it is up and running though you will get to see why Rustful Dead really found a new home!

Since I like naming my jeeps please feel free to suggest some for this one!

It will be running a crate 304/TF999/Dana 300 and I'm currently assembling the 304 and reconditioning the donor brackets and mounts I found for it.

Should be 4" lift on 33's .... I'm thinking of calling this one Beast. The guys I bought the TUB/Frame from were going to make a rock crawler out of it

Thanks!
Paul

Nice!

I'd get after that windshield frame, while it's still salvageable.
