Totally new to the forum, and I'm about to pull the trigger on the purchase of a 1981 CJ5 that is in pretty good shape. However, I have a concern that I'm hoping y'all can help me with.
My only hesitation is that the engine is a GM I4, with a 4 spped tranny. Am I going to be disappointed by the power? I have test driven the Jeep, and it seemed OK.
Whatever Jeep I buy will not be my daily driver. It will be for tooling around town, and taking out camping, etc. If I hit any trails or mud, it will be fairly light. I don't plan to get it stuck every weekend.
I am getting a good price on it, a nd have spoken with the mechanic that has done most of the maintenance on it. He says it's worth the price.
You opinions are appreciated.
Thanks - Jonesie
