Cj Namdoorgunner

I just recently purchased a 1965 CJ5 with a Buick v-6 - I want to do a lot of things with it but I haven't owned a CJ5 since 1972 and am having difficulties in finding the type of parts that I want to put in it - I want to start with a power steering kit for it and later maybe a 4-speed xmsn - I know that back in the day, several manufactures made steering kits, replacement axle housings, and other bolt on stuff for CJ5's - can anyone steer me in the right direction for these kind of parts? Most Jeep sales are for newer Jeeps and I want new technology replacement parts for these older Jeeps - am I asking for the impossible?

Welcome, tough job you had.
Take a look at Quadratec on line they have some parts.
CJ 5 seem to be disappearing pretty quickly but there are a few old timers here that may have some stuff stashed away.

When I was in the Grunts, I had a couple of chances to ride in a slick, both times in your seat, what a thrill.

If you know what you're looking for as far as brand quality and so forth I've used the aforementioned Quadratec EBay and ACME but the best service I ever found was the local Jeep parts/wrecking yard, Mac's Jeeparts. He even had three FC's if I remember right. Mac passed away and the shop closed, now I'm looking for another local outfit.

The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep

Check for 1971 and earlier Jeep parts. Get a catalogue. It has a great visual guide for recognizing the older CJ variants.

Thanks for your service--especially from us old GIs who loved to hear the sound of an M60 from an H1.
