CJ of the Month for November 2012!!

Congrats to Skerr!!!

Year of CJ- 1979 CJ5

Engine- Stock 258 with MC2100, Team Rush, 80s model intake and exhaust manifolds

Transmission- Rebuilt T18A with Granny

Transfer Case- Rebuilt D20

Front Axle- WT D30 with 3.54 gears

Rear Axle- WT AMC20 with Superior 1-pc axles, Lockrite, 11" drums

Suspension- Bone-Jarring Rough Country 2.5" lift springs, ProComp 9000 shocks

Tires- BFG AT/KOs 33X10.5X15 on Soft 8s

Additional Mods- This was a first-time frame-off project for my son and I. It was taken down to the last nut and bolt and rebuilt. The tub, fenders, and hood are glass and required a great deal of work, including closing up the PO homemade tailgate. Tub has received the wheel-house notch and a 1" body lift. The windshield frame (metal) has been repaired and welded to remove rust holes. Axles were upgraded to WT from an '85 CJ7 for a better footprint. Regeared the axles to 3.54. My son made the bumpers, tire carrier, sliders, and roll cage. The A and B pillars were purchased from Extreme Custom Fab, a great product. Cage is tied into the frame at 6 points. Dash is custom with a gauge kicker panel that my son also made. Gauges are aftermarket SunPro (inexpensive but look good). Tilt steering column is from a 1979 1 ton Chevy, junkyard purchase and completely rebuilt. Custom battery box with ground buss. GrandAm seats mounted to cage. Corbeau 3-pt harness. LED flush mount tail lights. Paint is Mil-Spec Desert Sand and my first-ever paint job!

I would like to thank the Forum Members who donated materials and parts, EXCEPTIONAL parts, who without them and their caring, generous nature, this build would not have been possible! God Bless You, Guys!

Transfer Case: Dana 300

Front Axle: Stock w/Warn Hubs

Rear Axle: AMC 20 w/Detroit Locker and Moser solid axles 4.10 gears

Suspension: 2.5" SkyJacker

Tires: 33"x12.5"-15 Hercules Trail Diggers on American Racing AR23's

Additional Mods: 2 piece Tom Woods front driveshaft, rear Tom Woods driveshaft, 1" body lift, fiberglass body, hood and fenders, Magnaflow open muffler, K&N air filter, Carter P5000 fuel pump, Corvette C6 exhaust manifolds, custom Griffin radiator, Wayne Hartwig (150tunes.com) chip tune and wire harness rebuild, House of Kolor Tangelo Pearl done in my garage, custom rear tire/kayak carrier, 6,000 pound Ramsey winch, Borgeson steering shaft, aluminum dash, Wet Okole Hawaii neoprene seat covers, Body Armor front bumper w/custom Tangelo D-rings, rear receiver hitch w/custom Tangelo D-ring, TANGELO license plate, Stewart Warner mechanical oil and temperature gauge and SW gas gauge, ScanGauge II, bikini top, Bestop full top, Olympic front light bar to support Thule kayak pads, Carr aluminum "Mama" step, POL Raptor bedliner, Optima Yellow Top battery. No radio, no A/C.

History: My son, Jason (Big Jake to his ironworker friends) bought it in 1990 while in high school. With mostly my money and wrenching together we did somewhat of a frame up restoration adding a Chevy 4.3 with a Howell Engineering harness, advance adaptors engine mounts and bell housing, fiberglass tub, fenders and hood, painted it Purple Passion, raised it 3.5" yadda, yadda. In 1996 he won the winch at the Cadillac MI Jeep Jamboree. Since then, we mostly take it out on nice days, ride the 2 tracks up north and use it at the Silver Lake Dunes. I tow it to FL in the winter behind my 33' Winnebago to use to get around down there for 2 months. Added a kayak rack and did a full paint job in 2009, HOK Tangelo Pearl with the black POL Raptor bedliner interior. In 2011 we installed a 5.3 out of an '07 Tahoe with the 4L60e tranny, mated to the original Dana 300. Pulled a noobie who didn't know the difference between the clutch and brake pedal on stuck Ford PU off the top of Test Dune at Silver Lake in 2011, he smashed into our SS bumper, thus the new Body Armor front bumper.
