The front tires make for perfect seats when changing the plugs. Since then I've made a front ram to hold my Warn. The nose clears the winch when lifted up.
Nice!! but not very possible with the french versions: at the internal face of fender are fixed some accessories as direction oil tank, gas oil filter, at left, cooling expansion tank at right
Today have I take my left rear brake drum down: rear driveline leak!!!!!
A little bit job to made in the next days!!!!!

A guy just happened to mention he had one that was brand new in the box never opened that he never installed, the windows do have some light spots but they should clear up when out in the sun.

Picked up parts for an "Astro Boost" power brakes and steering for my 76 CJ7. Only $80ish from JY and will need to order some high pressure hoses. Maybe another $50-70. My arms will be thanking me later and much easier stopping.

Half the lies they tell about me aren't true.

Where there is a will there is a way my friend. I built my CJ from scratch so there was nothing bolted to the inner fenders. After converting to the one piece nose I took it off and started looking for a place to mount everything. It was almost easier that way.

Good luck on your repairs. Do you have any pics of your 82?

Do you swap engines just to pass the smog?

Smog rules are funny in cali. His 'real' engine is a better, more efficient, cleaner engine. It also has used parts that would be considered scrap thus recycled. But if it has the wrong header/ manifold or no vac hoses or other obvious visible requirements, it fails. So every 2 years a bunch of folks either do this swap or keep the car registered in a no smog county! Yes they exist where population per square mile is less than some magic number. Madness, but fact...
