Bought my supposed 1977 last night. Waiting for the chance to crawl all over it to determine which is what and who...curious, to be sure.

'77 here, also. I know POs have done some work, prior to me. It has '79+ caliper brackets, Ford ignition, aluminum 2bbl intake, etc.... I haven't had any issues getting parts for mine.

1977 CJ7. Well, the frame and hood hinges are still original. It was all original when I bought it but that was several years ago.

Used to be a yellow 232 3 speed. Then it was a red 304 auto. Now it's a pewter LT1 700R4

So without identifying its specifically a 77 you can get bad information from owners of other years. Welcome to the club.
I just bought a 1977 CJ7 and have already uncovered lots of "interesting" things about it; for instance, it has a YJ tub on it and the previous owner didn't know why the tail gate didn't close quite right.

I love this beauty and am looking foward to straightening out all of the wierd little things that are part of it's personality.

The '76 CJ7 I had was tuff to find specific parts for. I learned quickly to not throw anything away during the build.

Can anyone recommend the best service manual to get and how to find out things that are stock/original equipment?

They're probably off of mine. Mine now has 1986 wide tracks (rear Dana 44)...and my dash is a modified YJ, to go with the tub and hardtop.

Just my 2 cents.. I had a 77 cj5 for a while and I now own a 76 cj5. I would presume the 77 was more of an upgrade from the 76. I think the big changes were the increase in slant to the windshield, front disc brakes, and did they change to a dana 30 from a 44? not sure if I am correct there.. beyond that much was the same from what i can tell. Anyway Cheers

'77 still had the D30. I believe all CJs were equipped with the 30, from the factory. (after '71, that is)
