My *new*85 CJ7 Project... Pics included..

Hey guys,
I was wondering if you could give me some OEM specifications on my 1985 Jeep CJ7. Like, what kind of rear is in it, etc.

Heres a link to some pics: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2959312/1

Heres what I know:
1985 CJ7
~139K Miles
AMC 258, new carb, distributor, plugs/wires, alternator,radiator,distributor,master cylinder. Smokes a little. Runs smoothly though.
4 Speed, 4wd
Power steering/power brakes
Fiberglass body

It needs a serious cleaning: the seats will (believe it or not) actually clean nicely. It needs a windshield frame, (a new one was included with the sale). The top is in average condition, no rips or anything.
Do you guys have any ideas for cheap upgrades that I can buy? Or, any stock specifications? Any input is appreciated.
Tom

Hey Tom. Congrats and welcome to the forum. I bought my 1985 CJ in October so I'm new here as well. The first question to ask yourself is what you'll be using it for. Mine was purcahsed for daily driver first and off road second so I've been doing things to improve the heater, drafts, etc. Getting up to speed for a 48 mile round trip each weekday. Some guys just use them for off road and couldn't give a hoot about heat etc. In any case I'm new so the other guys here will tell you alot more but what I can tell you is that the specs for all year CJ's are in the Chilton's book at your local auto parts store. My 1985 has an AMC 20 rear and Dana 30 front with a Dana 300 T case and T5 manual trans. I have issues with some grounds (wiper motor) and did little things that made a big difference like replaced every blade fuse. So cheap things to work on first would be that sort of thing. Besides a new heater core my biggest upgrade to date was a new cup holder. Enjoy!
