Great feeling driving one for the first time.
When I put my 48 together and drove it down the road my wife said I had a smile on my face a mile wide.

Here is a picture of mine after its first drive.

Im restoring a 73 CJ5 and have been trying to decide on a color. It came with a pretty new Spice colored Best Top so i want to match that. I think your blue would match great. What color blue is that???

1986 cj 7

does anyone know about what a 1986 CJ 7 straight 6, Automatic would go for? I just bought one from an individual, The body and paint are in good condition a little rust. The soft top was all torn up. The engine will not start. He had it completely rebuilt to include all the brakes, transmission, and transfer case back in 2000. I am in the process of attempting to get it running.

There is a forum just for estimating value. Unfortunately it's not as easy as a new car, location has a lot to do with prices. A non-running CJ here on the eastern shore would be around $800-$1500 depending on condition. However the same jeep 200 miles north would start closer to $2000 as long as the body is salvageable. Use the correct forum and a fellow jeeper from your area or someone that knows your area may chime in to give you a decent answer. Now post a picture of it as we need our fix!

Why are you wondering what its worth.

You already bought it.

The price must have been right

If it breaks once, shame on it. If it breaks again, shame on me.
Fix it right or better the first time.

Leaving the 33's is your call. I personaly thing that 33"s are the perfect fit for just the right stance (my opinion).

Allot will depend on your gears. If your running 2.73:1 gears your most likely having to drive around in 3rd gear just to keep going on a hill.

My 84 had 2.73 gears and on 31" they worked ok but when I went to 33's I needed to regear to get the engine rpm back in the torque curve.

If you take the body lift off you will still have good clearance for the 33's and make it easier to get your leg up and in.

360 swap done and new supertop installed. Still very much a project, but at least it's drivable now.
