The mods are set to begin

I bought a 84 CJ7 from the original owner in oct. Plenty of rust but 1 piece axles, locker, reverse shackle , good MT's and new winch for 1900 bucks. Droppred off today to get exhaust done and rear main seal replaced. I ordered a howell FI kit also, it will be in on wednesday and the fun begins!

I didnt run into in any issues at all. It was pretty straight forward and I am def not a great tech. I would suggest getting a HEI distibutor, I have not but I just met a guy with it and his engine bay is a bit cleaner and has less wire crud. And he says it does make the whole deal run better but I have yet to have any issues with mine. There is a ton of info on this site about this so I am sure you can get the help you need if you run into a snag. The JeepForum guys are great.
