Maybe Defrog or Keith can weigh in here.
I think all who post here would know what a "stock looking CJ" should look like.

Starting with wheel type, I know of maybe a half dozen that would pass for the stock look and I think most guys get away from that original look by purchasing aftermarket aluminum, black colored, turbine type or just some wheel that looks like it came from the Mars Rover.

Tires too, I think anywhere from 29" -33" are acceptable in size as they more or less fit the wheel wells and don't require outrageous lifts to accommodate.

Add on accessories from the factory like winches, light bars, roll bar padding, mud flaps to name a few are always acceptable because that is what people wanted when they purchased their Jeeps and the dealers offered them as well because they were factory approved. The factory Jeep Jamboree is a perfect example, just don't post something that looks like, what was that guys name?. I'm cloudless....

I think everyone is smart enough here to know just by looking at said Jeep is 'mostly' stock looking or not so use your own judgement.

My '72 Cj6

232 I6, D30 front, D44 Rear, 3 speed, D20 Tcase, 3:73 gears. Some bubba put those M151 wheels on it and the backspacing is way off. Looking for some original steelies. After searching forever I finally found two in a scrapyard of all places, about to be crushed! I have an 06 Unlimited but have lost all interest in it, the Cj6 is just too much fun. I'm unsure how stock I will keep it. I want it to look the same, but I just located a '65 Koenig Cj5 with a well drilling rig on the back. I'm thinking of swapping the D70 rear, Selectro Hubs, D18 PTO Tcase and PTO winch into it. It also has a halfcab but it needs a LOT of work before I can put it on.

Other than the wheels, nothing has been touched on it. It had been sitting in a barn for 20 years when I got it. Its got a little surface "patina" but no real rust. It was the first Cj6 I had ever laid my hands on so I snapped it up.

Thanks for posting pictures, I had already added you to the "Members List"

I noticed you have the heater knobs pulled out on the dash. Is it cold there?

Another stocker with the side steps!

Nice CJ-7 dslywalker, it has aged well and love the look of the patina on the glove box.

Sawed your dash? I would have made them pay for that!

Darn, my wheels don't pass Keith's "stock looking" smell test, so I guess I can't play on this thread.

Beautiful CJ's, gentlemen, all of them.

I will not post pictures of it, as it is nowhere near stock right now, but I can post a pic of what I’d like it to look like, keep in mind that the pic is of a '78, not '76 (couldn't find one that looked this nice). See the link in my sig for the progress (or lack thereof) of my restoration thread.
