In all the years that I've been a jeep owner, I've never done this. Great info!

Mine is 211C28 which decodes as a 2 bbl 258 built on November 28th, 1978. That makes a lot of sense now since it has a remanufactured tag on it.

The motor came in my 1976 CJ-5 that I had and had the T-150/Dana 20 combo behind it. I swapped in a T-18a later. If I decoded the CJ-5 VIN, it showed a 232.

Now on my 1976 CJ-7, which I purchased in pieces, the VIN decodes as having the 304 V8 with auto and quadra-trac, which wasn't there when I purchased it. The frame and body had seen its better days on the CJ-5 so the entire drivetrain, axles and suspension were moved to the CJ-7. Oh yea, I also swapped in wide-track axles from an 82 scrambler as well on YJ springs.

Thanks for posting! Learn something new every day!

1976 CJ-7 (resto-mod), YJ "family" cage, 6" YJ Springs, 35" BFG MT's, Warn 8274, 258, T-18a, D20, WTD30 & WTAMC20, 3.54 gears & locked F&R.

There are several older threads here on the forum regarding engine codes. If you read this thread you should end up with links to other threads and pages to find your code:
Builds \ CJ 1980 CJ5, w/ a 232 and Carter YF

Do you give the Jeep wave at night when they can't see you?
