JeepItUP,

Looks like you got yourself a YJ.

They are a Wrangler, they have square headlights, are were produced from 1987 to 1995

Take note to the thread title you posted in.

I figured i only payed $500 for my streetbike, im making a $3000 profit, but i am starting to like the jeep and deciding to keep it. Ill put picture up of the bike that i traded for the jeep and jeep pictures.
Jeep has 155k miles, 4 cylinder, 5-spd, 2.5 inch lift, brand new rims and tires. I mean when i got the jeep still have little hairs on tires, that alone surpased the price of the bike. He also put in a overhead speaker bar, and a back tool box, has a hidden under dash kill switch, a cd/mp3 deck, with 5 in lcd screen. So pretty much good trade!

Hey copper, thanks for the information, that clears up allot of mystery.

The D.O.T. has not voted yet. Beadlocks are actually safer than traditional rims, but the issue is that most people won't check the torque every month. Believe me, I called the CHP BEFORE I spent the money on those beadlocks.
This is interesting info, I see beadlocks everywhere around here, I wonder how many of them get in trouble. Of course they look good so fake beadlocks are also really popular, must be because the real ones are illegal. J

not trying to fuel the fire, but I'd be interested to see any law from any state which says that beadlocks are illegal.

I have never actually seen this in writing; however, I have always heard it!

This is the exact reason I originally asked copper if they were "real" beadlocks...

The way I see it, unless Johny Law Dog wheels himself...chances are, he wouldn't know what "beadlocks" are. If he's a fellow wheeler, hopefully you would drive away w/ a simple warning.

We could probably get a clear answer if we posted this somewhere besides the CJ picture thread too. Just a thought, as I'm even more curious myself now...

I know for a fact that they ARE, indeed, ILLEGAL in the state of Colorado.

The funny thing is, that Sgt. Cortez started his response with, "I run them on my personal truck..." So that made me feel easier about paying all that cash for beadlocks. And, yes, most law enforcement is not hip to what beadlocks are - YET.

My pics never showed up. I hope someone can help me with a free click or something.

1984 Scrambler
258 Straight 6 original engine
Almost all original.

Purchased from my father who drove it straight off the dealer's lot. Never seen extreme trails, just some dirt roads. Future plans include engine rebuild, lift with tires, lockers, new gearing etc.

Okay, nice CJ. I think you can't post pictures until you have 50+ posts or become a supporter

WOW, what a great looking Scrambler. The only thing that makes it better is that you got a cool story to go along with it. I would definetly keep that one in the family.

Is that the original paint and decals? If so, that is awesome too! I would also leave that factory paint alone, as there are not many left w/ that good of factory steel and paint left.

Looks great, and please keep us posted w/ pics while you "beef" it up!

I am currently deployed to Iraq (again), and the way I cope with my addiction (Jeep and Harley) withdrawls is to take a bunch of photos before I depart. Well this time, all I can find is posing shots, and almost everyone has one of my bikes in it along w/ the Jeep (sorry). I have been a lurking member for a couple years (?think its been that long?); however, I just recently started posting. There is a lot of great information and helpful knowledgable members here. I cannot wait to "finish" the Jeep upon returning home.

Here is a pic of the CJ posing w/ the Dyna:


Here is a pic of the CJ with the Springer:

no arguement from me, I'm actually intersted to see what they based the illegality on, (ie, did they pass a specific law, or interpret an existing)

Beadlock

If some one is sure about the laws in certain states I will be the last to argue (or second to last maybe) JP mag has a bit about it in June 08 mailbag page 6 saying there is no written law. (This probably varies by state, I have always heard they are illegal) wonder if it may be related to a split rim kind of law? Just a guess...

Possibly some kind of 'racing equipment' rule?

I'm sorry if my post came off as harsh. I didn't mean to be. I was told that by a Denver cop.
