So will you have stereo sound through the ipod?

I don't know that it will be stereo sound, since there is only one speaker in the '76, but the iPod will plug into the back of the radio, so I'll be able to listen to tunes, even when I'm in the middle of nowhere and can't get AM reception.

I guess Greg from S&M Electro-Tech will do a similar mod that I did on the OEM radio in my CJ? How much does someone charge for that modification?

I didn't know 1976 CJ-5 had a reflector mounted on the spare tire carrier. I thought they were only on the M-38, M-51 militray version and were made by Stimsonite or Sterolite.

Greg gave me an estimate of $200 to restore the radio and add the aux. input....by restore, I mean put all new updated guts in it.

Yeah, since the side spare tire carrier covered where there would have been a light, AMC put the reflector for DOT compliance.

Here's a pic.

I like being retired...gives me time to scour the net for parts

Just scored these this morning. I didn't need the silver parts, just the knobs.

Well, I won't tell Brooke, if you don't!

The knobs are NOS.

It's frigging freezing this morning (22*)....I was planning to sand and prime the dash today, but I don't think that's going to happen.

I spoke to Greg Thompson (the radio restoration guy) a few days ago...he got the radio, and it will take about 10/11 weeks to get it restored and back in my hands. I can't wait to see the results and post them.

Looking forward to that myself. Are there any AM radio stations available around your area?

I get AM 850 KOA in Denver, AM 820 WBAP in Dallas, AM 960 KGKL and AM 1260 KKSA, both in San Angelo.

KOA pumps out major wattage and has great atmospheric skip. It comes in best in early morning or in the evening/night.

I just went to the Angelo State University West Texas Collection library and was able to get an ad for the dealership that sold my CJ brand-new in December 1975. They're going to try and locate a picture of the dealership as it looked back when the CJ was sold new.

Just picked up two more things tonight, a rubber gas filler grommet, correct for '76, and what I believe to be the correct reflector for the side spare tire carrier...if it isn't, I'm only out $20.

eBay and lots of searching. My NSA searching skills are coming in handy, I guess

I had a lot of time on my hands today, so I decided that the original window sticker I had made (aka Monroney sticker) wasn't good enough, since I used a 1981 version.

I managed to find 1976 and 1977 stickers....with the magic of Microsoft Paint and a lot of patience, I recreated what my Monroni would have looked like. I'm including a blank Monroni for you '76 owners and a '77 blank; I believe that the '77 blank was used into '79, but you'll have to check.

I'm trying, brother, I'm trying. It's the little details, in my opinion, which make the restoration that much more special.

The font I used is IBM 1403 Modified, size 11.
