Speedometer

Hey,
I was looking into restoring a '75 304 V8 myself so i researched it all, go to this link:

Quadratec.Com

And follow it to CJ, then you should find a speedometer under electrical. Im pretty sure theyre like 99 bucks, not too cheap, but its a important part. Later

Hi Tuts, I am building a 75 cj5. In additon to quadratec, go to 4wd.com, mostly same stuff, but other parts too.
One or both of these sites lets you order a 'vintage' jeep catalog for 75 and earlier. Also, go to ebay and navigate to parts and search for used jeep parts. Sometimes you see guages there for cheap.

Interesting color scheme. Why dont you just put some of all those colors into it. Say in pokadot, cammoflage, or perhapse plad.

Well, it doesn't need any. It already has a fiberglass body with 33 1/2 inch tires. also the 304 v8 is real nice. Oh and instead of a tiny roll bar it has a whole roll cage. the usuall tree bender, air shocks...... yea and i guess thats about it. What about you?

Tuts,

Probably the best place to get OEM parts for just about any CJ would be Surplus City. Prices are superb. Check it out
