Sorry about the Jeep, I've got a 71 also. First, and I may be wrong, if so I'm sure someone can correct me, but I beleive AMC bought the Jeep from Kaiser after the 70 model year, so the 71 is an AMC/Jeep. Although from what I've noticed on mine, I don't thank they changed much that first year. Definately not a 7, probably a 5 or maybe a 6, need description, either will bend when hit by a tree. Third, krage motorsports/jeepdoc, recently did business with them, good service and many parts, kaiser/willys overland, haven't had any dealings with them, but I downloaded there catalog and they offer about anything you could want. Then there's always JC Whitney. Hope you get her fixed.
If the wife didn't hate it so much, I might not love it so much.
