Hey everyone, I'm a ZJ owner myself, so looking into the CJ's is new to me...
I've got a friend who is looking at a 1980 CJ5.
It's got a 304 V8, 4sp trans.
It does not have any top, so she would like to find a hardtop (and doors) as soon as possible if she purchases it. (winters get pretty cold out here, so a Hardtop is the preference at the moment).
Any suggestions on where to look? I did some quick searching and Acme hardtops seem to be popular, but it looks like they frequently have issues lining up/sealing...?
As well as the top and doors, we know it needs new rear brakes. But other than that, were looking for suggestions on what to look out for. Obviously well be looking for normal wear and tare, or abuse, but you all know the 'main' issues you run into with your CJ5's so, any suggestions as to what to ask are welcome.
