I just got my first CJ5 today!

I've been looking at this beauty for a week now and finally my dad and I went down and bought it. Its a 1975 CJ5 6cy with a brand new best-top, paint, and 32 inch tires. I love it so much! Take a look at some pics and tell me what you think.

Bannings - great looking Jeep! Welcome to the site and to Jeepin'!

my1st1980CJ5 - don't worry about the lesser power of the 4 cyl. Most of the guys around here can tell you there is no reason to loathe it.

Awesome 5!!! I started with a CJ-5 while I was at Clemson. Just gratuated in 2002!

Congrats on the sweet new ride and glad to have you on the Jeepforum.com. Do you have plans for it yet? Prepare for the addiction if you don't already have it!!!

Nope no plans yet, its pretty nice as it is. I'll have to get a steady job before i can start modding it. But as for now I'll just keep it looking classic.
