Hi all! My first day & first post. Just aquired '82 CJ-7, 258, 5 speed? (there only seem to be 3speeds) 68k on the clock (lies, all lies) in generally good condition considering the year. I DOES have a Clifford Research intake manifold w/ a proper carb (holley), 4 a header. I runs great but the tranny may be a known issue here and the brakes 'll scare ya to death if your not ready. Can any body tell me what's the best lift & how big a tire can go on. This is a real project but i THINK IT WILL BE WORTH IT! Love that big speedo in the middle of the dash. I'm looking forward to getting some info from the members here and cotributing some too as time goes on. Thanks!

FAr to go

Thanks for the welcome. I've still got to identify the specs on this CJ. Chrysler's computer has nno info. I know it has AMC 60 rear, but I just got the codes for the ratio, (boy it looks like a hefty unit), a nice big pumpkin! I'm pretty sure the tranny's a 5-speed with a minor (hope) shift fork problem. Hits 1-2-3 & R but no 4-5.
First I want to get 'er road ready and registered. I pan to make it a good trail/rock climber machine but I want to pay attetion to looks too! I like the thoughts of a yellow/blue combo. She's currently a platinum grey /w black gut & H/T. I want to strip the interior & Rhino coat blue, yellow ext paint yellow/ blue susp parts etc., I 've got it in my head but it will take a while to bring it out in the metal. New springs maybe rev shackles like to get abiout 4" added to fit 33-35"s & will be looking for advice from other members when I get to that stage. I have some motorcycle projects going too so w`ile my plate's full, I'm enjoying it immensely! Jim, your '79 looks great BTW. I hope Mine will be as good when it's done!
