76' CJ 5 as a semi daily driver?
I am looking at a 76' CJ5 with a 304 with a 3 speed and front end all gone through....is this an alright canidate for a semi daily driver...like winter and rainy days when I cant ride my motorcycle....I figure since I have my truck sold and no payment any breaks I can repair and not hurt the pocket book to bad...what do you think?
How many miles a day is your commute? I DD my '83 CJ for about 4 years, about 50 miles a day round trip. The driving was fine, but if you ever need to work on it you have to have it buttoned up again by Monday morning. Sometimes, that's not always easy if you have to wait to get a part-

CJs are not the best vehicle for snowy and icy roads. Their short wheelbase makes them rather "squirrelly" on slick pavement. It can be done, but just be aware of this. If the axles have limited slips or lockers in them (ones that you cannot disconnect) the problem is worse.
