Thanks Forum

Hello all,

I have been following the forums for several years now. Right around the time I began to get the jeep itch again. I cured that itch about 2 months ago when I purchased a 1980 cj7. the CJ is very clean with minimal rust and in good running condition. With the vast knowledge of forum members behind me I got busy. In two months I have completed the following upgrades with your help.

Borgeson Steering shaft (no more death wobble)
Painless wiring harness
new upper and lower ball joints (not fun)
4 in round led
Halogen conversion
stainless steel dash with Auto-meter layout
new radiator (twice)
team rush upgrade
Raptor lined hardtop
Bilstein 5125 front and rear

All of which I could not have done with out the aid of Jeep Forum.

Thanks guys

RJ

Going to start fabrication on rocker guards shortly. Already have them drawn up for the plasma cam and a full sheet of 3/16 plate. Now all I need is the time to do it. I Will post pictures of the progress.

Very good job. Looks like you are able to give the rest of us a little advice on how to make a Jeep look good. God bless.
