Wanted to thank you all for the "Jeep info" I've learned here over the last three months. Very informative and generously given. Living here in Michigan, I new it would be tough to find a rust free CJ7 locally without paying big bucks. So, I started looking south and west via CL and eventually found what I wanted in N Carolina. Drove down there between Christmas and New year and drove it home the next day. Not one problem on the way back for which I was quite grateful.
Now it's coming apart in my garage with the help of a good friend. Interior/dash/steering column are out. Floors are sanded and looking sharp in a new coat of Chassis Saver rust preventative paint. Plan to put my cut up dash back to stock, tighten up the steering, fix a loose front output shaft and plug a bunch of leaks to start with
Looking forward to making some friends on the site.
