Wow, that is a clean/nice looking '5!

Assuming the mileage is since the restoration/rebuild?

Amazingly clean garage too!

Thank you for the complements. I just completed the shop around last October, the shop is something I have wanted since I was a mechanic back in the 70's. I love the 76-79 CJ-5's because I know them intimately since special ordering my 1st one from Toledo back in 77. This new 79 that I posted photos of has everything NEW on it. OEM Steel Tub (not an import), all body panels and braces, brake lines, complete fuel system including all the lines and frame retainers, tank, skid plate, emission components, ETC. (except Edelbrock intake, 4 barrel & air cleaner, valve covers). As a result of loosing the warm air updraft (Factory Air Cleaner) it's a little cold blooded but I'm going to tighten the choke a bit, adjust the carb mixture screws to peak rpm and set the timing as far as I can get away with. When I saw this on line, a twin to my 77 Loden Green, except 304 in place of 258, for sale and hit the owner with a price it was a done deal. I looked at over 100 dig photos, video and had a cert mechanic check it over since I am in SC and the Jeep was in Colorado. In the photos and even up on my rack in the shop it appears as though it rolled has just rolled off the assembly line 1900 miles ago, SERIOUSLY. The frame even appears new on the inside and outside. I believe the motor was completely gone through due to the cleanliness of the block, new freeze plugs, etc. Who ever put the rear main 2 piece seal in failed proper installation (leaking) so we fixed that last week, made the cooling system a little bigger by adding an over flow bottle and closing the system at radiator. One thing I did use for the 1st time on seals and gaskets because of some of my research, is use Loctite 518 anabolic sealer. Especially where the 2 piece seal 1/2's meet and in the corners of the main bearing as procedures call for, but I also used the primer that was recommended by Loctite (#7649 Sealer/Primer) for this sealer on all the sealing surfaces, block, pan, and on both sides of the cork and rubber pan gaskets. I've driven this a few time since the seal was done and it is bone dry. Gasket stayed and no pooching. I'l be putting a few custom touches on it because I'm real particular, but only to improve what is there already.

One thing I forgot. . . I love my Mohawk Lift! Especially with a real bad right elbow, shoulder (very limited range of motion), and just had my right hip replaced.

New here, and relatively new to CJs, so I'm doing a lot of searching and will have a few noob questions on the horizon.

'82 CJ-8 258/T5/D300. AMC Model 20/D30.

Has had a decent restoration, the last to be figured out is the dash and of course a few odds and ends things.

Great looking 8! Love the lift/tire/rim combo! Very clean. BUT why the black hinges? Those I'm not liking.
