I had been talking with a guy who had a 75 CJ5 that he was getting ready to part. I wanted the 258 out of it for some donor parts for a stoker. He didn't have the time to part it and he didn't want to deal with people nagging him for parts. One day we were talking and he said he'd let it go for $500. During the course of the conversation, he mentioned he was looking for a 231 to rebuild with a 4:1 kit. This morning for $400 and a transfer case, he dropped this off.
It's your run of the mill CJ5. 258, T15 (or so the PO claims, everyone tells me the T14 was factory), Dana 20, Dana 30 & Dana 44 axles.
My 4 year olds playing on it.
Sitting next to the XJ. The CJ has 33's and the XJ has 31's.
Had been sitting in a barn for the last few years. Somebody went through the effort to put this on.
Free set of doors. They'll probably be up for sale/trade soon.
Picked this up on CL for $50 last night to replace the missing windshield.
New dash and a complete rewire is in the future.
The mighty 258
And so the adventure begins........
