Got another CJ today!!

I swapped my AR15 for a 83 CJ7 its all stock w/ 258 4 speed and dana 300 stock rims and some little tires! It has the hard top wich was a plus for me. The thing runs and drives great, the only bad thing is the tub is pretty rusty wich dosn't bother me too much as I don't mind replacing panels and some body work. I like the fact that I can get in and out of it a whole lot easier as im 6'4" I'm not sure what im gonna do with the 5 now. Im thinking that i'll save it and make it a father son project, as my boy is now 13 and really likes Jeeps.

LOL "Removable Golden Retriever?" That's just funny. I'll have a removable German Shepherd in mine.

Guns don't kill people... Bad trail spotters do.

CONGRATS! ... Keep them both!

First thing I would do is a GROUNDING upgrade. Most folks do not realize that RUST is initially started from bad grounding. In other words, you don't get rust if anything metal is properly grounded. So, do the GROUND upgrade that "JeepHammer" has written about on here and any others that you feel could use revitalization. It will make your new CJ a lot more enjoyable.
