Rebuilt a mc 2100 I had laying around and slapped it on. I had no idea how bad of shape the one I had on it was in. It now easily smokes the 35's. Tomorrow its off to the boneyard to pull some scout 44s.

Used it to teach my son how to spot. It was a blast. Prior to the start of the trail, we went over the stuff underneath that we did not want to hit and stuff tht was OK to hit. He really worried about poking a hole in the oil pan.
I love seeing that. I learned everything I know about jeeps on my own, but I grab my little brother (16) every time I get to jeepin', and now he knows a cj5 inside and out.
Cleaned the shop today. This morning we went and picked up a TF727 that has a AMC bellhousing pattern and an adapter for a Spicer 20 on the back for $100 off Craigslist. Dad want's to convert his CJ5 to an auto.
Put it on an engine stand and took the pan off. It's been rebuilt and was never ran after that.
Inside the pan. You could almost eat off it.
Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
Just swapped out my oem T5 shifter with the CORE Hurst short throw shifter on my CJ. To voice the opinion of some other posters around here, probably the best $200.00 upgrade out there. No more rubber boot, no more slop, no more mis shifts..cut down the slop by over 60%...I am excited!!!
It was yesterday and I didn't do anything to it, but I pulled the scout 44's for it. They came out of a 78 scout terra pickup. Hard to believe I
found em in a bone yard 40 min from the house. $200 I felt like was a good deal.
My rancho rs9000xl shocks rode worse than the shocks I had on before so I took the ranchos off and put back on the other shocks, which I guess are bds.
