Welcome to the best jeep forum on the web!!

That is a sharp pair of early CJ-5's you two have, especially with matching trailers!


Can you post up some more pics?

Thank you! We have had them in the family forever and we enjoy using them. Its hard to modify them tho since they are pretty much stock. The blue one is anyway..

I would really like to upgrade to the wider leaf springs for a better ride and maybe get rid of some of the death sway. I just can't get myself to do it since it has been in the family since it was driven of the showroom floor. I feel like it would be a jeep sin adding newer year parts... correct me if i'm wrong. Maybe if i just put some new shocks and rebuild the steering it will help.

Here's my girl, she will be candy apple red metallic in just a few week. It has a wrangler tub conversion that is nearly complete. I had to "safety cap" both rear ends of the frame and change 2 of the mounts as well as add a new crossmember. I have done tons but won't get to much into it here. Also the rear fuel filler will be filled in, I am installing a chrome round filler on the passenger side to retain the cj gas tank and because I think it will give the back a cleaner willys-era appearance.





went with the wrangler family style roll bar so my kids r safer plus never been a fan of the cj roll bar, but that's just me. Full frame sandblasted

and por15'd all new pre bent stainless brake lines. new front clip and hood. Bought the tub for $ 150 ( thanks craigslist ) but required tons of

fabrication. Special thanks to Sari Marsicano, Gary the Welder and my brother Steve for all his fabrication insight and work. Tub has a new cargo

floor welded in as well as all the repaired mounts thanks to the torch happy salvage company I bought it from. Oh well. floors are por15'd up and

down (underbody) and may be rolled herculined soon.

Tailgate conversion was mostly painless except for the slag burn from welding upside down. LOL.


oh yeah this pic is most recent and decending in reverse chronological order

This assembly was a dry fit to see if we had all our body mounts lined up right before welding them in, felt goog though to see the body somewhat assembled, haven't see that since before Halloween 2011

switched to hei distributor since this photo - huge increase in spark and power. I drove this all summer with the HEI in it before we tore the body off as seen above.

Robrich very nice work so far. Keep up the good work, can't wait to see the final product. Candy Red, should look very cool, not to mention upset one or two of the "old timers" on the forum. Planning to add any high=lite colors or even a pin-strip or two?

yeah, I gotta be me. The paint is actually a candy apple red metallic single stage acrylic enamel from trinity1945.com . As far as accents all hinges are stainless and I have painted the roll cage a silver metallic. I like the way it looks so I may do the dash that color as well just to brighten up the area especially for night use. I was thinking about striping along the rockers with this... ( I made it on paint)
