new to my 85 cj7

i am a 29 year old fireman/landscaper/father/and husband...don't know i am going to get this finished! just bought a 85 cj7 partially restored, the frame is a rolling chasis, and the body is at the paint and body shop, should be ready in 2 weeks. the original owner stripped down the jeep to the frame rails and started over the chasis is immaculate, not a old bolt used on this. there are tons and tons of work been already completed and i turned to you guys for questions and answers and encouragement to finish this project within the next 2 months...hope all goes well! thanks jeremy

Welcome Brother! Being three of the four things you stated, (Landscaper I'm not) I can tell you that time will be the enemy as in where you find it to work on your Jeep. Theres' lots of good people and info here on the site. Ask away. Also if you don't have one yet be sure to get yourself a shop manual for the Jeep. It will be a big help as well. GoodLuck.

Seems like everyday is a Monday.

X2 on what Bigjoe said, at least the part about the shop manual. They are priceless for having the CORRECT information.

I've been on here about 6 months myself, a real newb when I started, but I've learned a lot from these guys. I'm even capable of giving a correct answer to a question here and there.

Again, welcome aboard and we'll try to help you out wherever we can.
