If efi id recommend the 232 from comp cam or 239 if staying with carb!

The 2nd happiest day of a CJ owner: the day he drove it home (or trailered it)

The happiest day of a CJ owner: the day he watched it drive off after selling it.

Sold it today. Ill miss that jeep

The happiest day of a cj owners wife: the day after when she walks in the garage and it no longer smells like gas fumes.

I just realized. I'm now that GD F'ing PO

Signing off now. Probably go to the dark side and get a hummer....just kidding. Would like to get a JKUR family jeep. I'm so ashamed.

Mocked up a cardboard anti wrap bar mount and started it and let it run for the first time in 2 weeks.

With no internal lighting , i swapped the rear view mirror for a junkyard version with lights. Now i have 2 lights under my mirror that light up enough to find things at night

Also atttached the antenna for regular radio in preparation for installing some cheap sounds
