You will usually find a fellow jeeper out there willling to help out. Just keep looking!

Here's my last jeep

Both my wife and daughter are pissed I got rid of the 65. I can't figure out why tho. My wife never rode in it in the 14 years we owned it and the Daughter was never gonna get to drive it unless I was with her!!! It needed more bux than I wanted to spend!! To finish it right that is!! I may try your idea for craigslist tho. -Sparky- Oh 94 is the year.

Hey all, No work on the Cj this week end. I had to build a retaining wall in the back yard. I did get out on Easter sunday and checked out a used tub. I bought it for 400 Bux. It came with the steering column, heater assembly ( from a Yj ) and the wiring loom with the computer for a V6. Plus a clean dash with all the guages. It is also an 81 with the title. The inside of the tub has been rhino lined. I think I got a pretty good deal. What say you?? Sparky

Looks good!! Looks like you got a little bit of work cut out for ya but for that price it's worth it. Keep the picks coming. I should have my build thread started by the end of the week. So what are your plans for this thing?? What do you plan on doing to it??

Stan, I plan to fish, prospect and 4 wheel trails like the Rubicon, I am leaning towards an engine swap to 4.0 or maybe a chevy 350. I would prefer a automatic over the manual. I am not sure how a 4.0 is with a auto trany. I think they came this way in Cherokee's and maybe Cj's and Yj's but I don't know. -Sparky-

Here are a few mor Pictures of the tub. It is pretty clean but it will need 3 driver side seat attachment blind nuts welded back on, a simple job compared to some of the stuff I see the east coast guys dealing with!!

When I post your pics, the site makes me type in 10 letters min. It does not have to be free clicky, would you like something else? How about "cjs are best"
