So ever since I can remember I've wanted a CJ, my late father owned a CJ-5 and CJ-7 and I've always just loved them.
So the intro's done, here's the facts:
I'm 19 and in college.
I own a 2000 XJ, it's my daily.
I also have a very cancer ridden 1985 FSJ Wagoneer with a good 360 in it.
I've got about 2500 extra dollars that I won't be missing anytime soon.
And here we go: I found a 1985 CJ-7 for sale at a stealership. The owner is asking 2950 for it. It has the 4.2L in it with a 5-speed tranny. Miles over 100,000. Frame looks good from what I can tell, no rust on it, body is clean too except for under the rear tailgate, it's starting to develop some bubbles.
It's got some 15 inch D-Windows on it with a full size spare, poison spyder rocker guards, tube bumper in the rear, and custom steel bumper on the front end with two mini-stinger looking things on it.
The only down side that I can see that definitely stands out is that it does not come with doors and only has a bikini top. I live on the Coastal Bend of South Texas and spring is coming up which I don't think would be too bad of a problem to me.
So there is my story, and here is my question, are there any other things that I should look for on the Jeep that could signify that it is junk? Should I just invest in my XJ, (nothing wrong with it)? I don't know I really want it what do you guys think is it a good deal?
Here are two crappy pics of it that I managed to snap with my phone.
