My CJ7 project...

I recently bought this 86 cj7 from a friend. It's got a yj tub with fiberglass fenders and hood. It's got an amc 360 with a 4-speed tranny I was told out of a yj?? When I got it, it had been sitting for 4-years. The starter was missing as was the radiator. We brought it home threw in a radiator and starter and after a few carb fires it started up and ran like a champ. We got it out and running this past weekend and drove it around on the front driveshaft. The rear one needs to be cut to fit...My brother in law and I are working on it together and he's going to use it for the most part as I already have my yj. But for $1000 bux I couldn't pass it up...

It's going to get a good bath this weekend, temps are supposed to be in the 60's... I have a set of 35" thornbirds that are going on it. We are going to flatblack the hood. We just got the new rubber hood spacers in the mail. Now I can mount the front hood clips then dissasemble and paint. Other than the driveshaft and a few odds and ends, it's ready for the road...I forgot to mention that it also has an aftermarket frame, there is zero rust repair to do!!! I'll be adding a set of diamond plate rocker covers that i have that are also going to be painted flat black... I'm looking for the front brackets for a flip and fold seat if anyone has any...

Just out of curiosity.. have you purchased the thornbirds yet? Those tires are terrible offroad and have earned the name "stuckbirds". If you haven't purchased them yet.. please please please get something else!

I already had them.. I took them off a jeep I had before.... The 33's that are on it now are cooked and new tires aren't in the budget right now... We're keeping an eye out for a good used set of 33x12.5's for it...

You could always go with treadwright.com tires - they have a 2 year warranty. Just throwing that out there
