rebuilding my '81 CJ7

Hi all,
I am new to this forum and am looking for a little help. I have an '81 CJ7 that has been sitting for years and I want to rebuild it. My question is this; Does anyone have any recommendations for a good, Honest Mechanic that knows Jeeps inside and out in the Sacramento/greater area?

Welcome to JF!

Please post this in CJ Wrngler Tech found here:

On the mobile app go to the models forum and you'll find it in there. This will place your question where other CJ owners will see it and you'll get better answers there.

Tbis forum is for site/account/app issues questions, and suggestions only!

Also, if you haven't done it yet, fill in your profile and tell us about your CJ. We can use that info to give you better answers.
