I am considering selling my CJ7 to buy my dads CJ5. Tell my what you guys think.
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
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.
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
do you really have a D30/D35 combo under there?
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.
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
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.
