Someone give me a value estimate.

I am considering selling my CJ7 to buy my dads CJ5. Tell my what you guys think.

My CJ7







1981
GM 151 4cyl
Entire powertrain is rebuilt with less than than 40k, no reciepts, but you can tell when you drive it.
4" SOA 2" Body lift
33"x15.5" Super Swampers
Full Custom Roll Cage
Front and Rear Lock Rite lockers
Power Steering
4:11 gears
Will be painted deep blue soon.
Sony Xplod deck with 2 6" polk speakers.
1/4 steel plates as homemade armor on the sides, but covering crawling dents.

I need it to be at least in the 3500 dollar range, Im not going to be broken up if you guys don't think so, I love my jeep, I just like the 360 sleeper that my dads has in it, so just let me know.

please take no offense, but IMHO- you aren't there (yet)

straight and painted, maybe~ and I can't speak for you specific area, but that's around a $2-2.5K Jeep AT MOST around here.

do you really have a D30/D35 combo under there?

Just keep it. You will wish you had it in a few years and by then you may have the cash to fix it up. Can you post a pic of your dad's CJ5.

No offense taken, but I would check your local craigs list between 1.5k and 3k, recently any lifted CJ that needs nothing to be a DD (which mine is) are getting pricey. The major drawback is the whopping 90 horses

Thats what I was told by the original owner, though Im just going to come out and say it, I know nothing about axles/gears.

Don't get me wrong I absolutley love it, has never left me stranded and has yet to even slip a tire when its locked in, just gotta love the V8.

Dad's aint going for what he hoped for (4k) so he is going to drop the price. He needs the money, but I told him to give me a month to see if mine would sell first.

It does not have the 33"s now, just 31"s on chrome wheels. But it is unbelievably fast.

why not just do a V8 in your 7? The 5 does look pretty nice though. If you post some pics up of the axles I bet we could tell you what they are, I hope you dont have the D35 under it if it does you may want to find the PO

WOW thats no good. Ill probably end up doing an v8 swap. I kinda wanted overdrive anyway. The axles in it have been nothin but good to me, they have taken some serious hits and falls and have not had any issues runnin those beefy tires so im not worried about those. But before the painting its gettin a new hood, and some 1/16 inch steel plates over the dents near the jeep emblem, and probably diamond plating in the back. It was built to be a crawler before I had it, and very much used that way. But, I can tell you the rear differential circular if that gives any clue. Either way I have a spare AMC 20 in my backyard

are you sure you don't already have a Model 20 rear diff? your rear bolt pattern looks like 5x5.5".

this will give you a good way to positively identify your axles

I agree with the 1500$ish price range. It's a nice Jeep, but I tend to shy away from anything that's been modified, especially a SOA, and "home-made" plate on the sides.

I'd keep it and wheel the crap out of it though. When that 151 dies again, swap in a 304 or 360.

Definetly nothing close to an original jeep, Ill probably post it as a moderate crawler (has gone more places than my YJ did, my dads, or brothers' have, with ease) and just sit on it. Right now in AZ you can barely get a running vehicle with the tag 4x4 on it for 2k, but not anybody is really buyin anything anyway. Chances are with what you guys have told my Ill probably keep it though. Im 17, so I do get to wheel the crap out of it.

Got 2700 out of it, got 800 dollars worth the payments now, still probably cheaper than a full 350 swap
