Thanks folks. I was really pleased at how it turned out also. The trooper was really good to work with. Kudos to him for figuring out how to get the original VIN reissued. It isn't often that I end up living the fun story

Wow, that's some story!

Did you figure out how the wrong VIN got onto your CJ5?

We don't know how the VIN got switched. I am guessing that somebody lost the title for the jeep, and had a 1980 around, that had been wrecked or something. The genius probably decided that it was easier to put the other VIN and title from the other Jeep, onto mine, instead of getting another title. I really have no idea. However, somebody who welds an axle nut on vs. get another cotter pin. Not surprising...

So did they actually swap the CJ7 firewall portion into the 5's firewall? Confused.
