That's when mine come alive.

But usually my 76 will cruise at 65 mph.

If I just bought a 35 year old vehicle, brakes would be my first priority. Especially if you're doing 70. I learned this the hard way.

Now when I get an old car or truck it goes nowhere until the entire brake system has gotten a good going over. That moment when you press the pedal and it goes to the floor...big time oh sh*t moment

Well i bought the jeep off of an guy who bought it for his son and well lets just say they were not much help on finding what type of cj it was or what had been done to it. Bright side i paid only $73 dollars today for the title change and found out its a V6
4.2 L inline and model is a universal. So km guessing it was the basic?? Can anyone guess what trany it has or anything of that sort?

The 4.2 is an inline engine not a V6. Inline means that there are 6 cylinders in a row, V6 means the cylinders have two rows of 3 in a V with the crank in the center of the v.


Got a picture of the engine, that will settle what it is.
