OK folks tell me what you think. I just got this today.

1976 cj-5 258-I6, t-18-1a, not sure on the transfer but I think it's stock, dana 30 up front, amc 20 in back. 3-4 inch lift springs on 32's

It came with a warn 8274 winch, acme hard top and doors , soft top and doors, bikini top, brand new seats up front ratty seat in back (wasn't installed), 4 jerry cans, a full size mechanics tool box from mac tools, a one bbl. carb installed and a new empi two bbl. in the box, hei ignition, high lift jack, new exhaust from the header back, optima red top battery, swing out tire carrier with space for two gas cans, one bent tie rod and in need of a new paint job.

And the thing that makes me happy is that even after spending 3 hours crawling over every inch of this thing there is not one spot of rust any were, not on the body or frame I even used a light and looked inside the frame and it is 100% rust free :highfive::highfive:

I know I need pics, and I've taken them, I just can't figure out how to get them up here.:confused:

Jeep is from Arizona originally? I'm jealous of the no rust!

brownbagg 11-27-2010 07:55 AM

black954 11-27-2010 07:58 AM

All tools in the box were probably purchased and used to keep the Jeep more more tools! HAHA...that box is SWEET though! I can imagine hooking a tow rig to it and just bringing it everywhere you take the Jeep....break down and you've got everything you need with you...

Nice Jeep...looking forward to seeing it come along.

That tire carrier looks very similar to the photo in my old Kayline brochure. Nice Jeep & Tools! Great Find! Good luck with your purchase.

Oh man I feel so sorry for you. Hey I'll come and get it so you don't have to ever think of what a bad deal you got. :rofl: I'll even haul the tool box off too! :D

last night I went for little joy ride and blew out the heater hose. So I had to bypass it on the side of the road.

today I spent the day rearranging the garage to get the tool box in,tomorrow I'll correct the heater hose.

thanks for all the responses and here are some more pics.

also can someone tell me witch transfer case that is? thanks

Whoa! How's your alignment. That tie rod's bent pretty bad.
