CJ7, the choice of fatties!

Careful, some of these bubbas get testy if you mention their girth. When I suggested to someone a while back that rather than modifying his CJ5 to accommodate his giant gut he would be better off taking on an exercise and diet regimen and losing some friggin weight, his feathers ruffled like a wet hen and he ranted and raved like a lunatic. Seems to me that when you have to modify your physical surroundings to accommodate your belly it's time to admit you have a problem.

Eu não penso que você pode alterar de 5 a 7. O corpo é inferior a 5. Você poderia mudar a 7 em a 5. Corte o corpo em 5 para tornar a 7 seria demasiado perto das rodas.

I hear ya Skyd... I am 6-4 too. I wanted a CJ5 but every "5" I looked at was almost mission impossible to get in or out of. My "7" is very comfortable enough leg room for those long stretches of highway. And most importantly, easy for an old guy with a bad back to get into or out of.

Yes. Making an automatic transmission available was the main motivation for the CJ-7 model. Aside from the extra 10" of wheelbase and what that impacts, it's basically the same as a CJ-5.

<edit> The new body design included an update of the tailgate, IIRC. The CJ-7 has a plug tailgate, unlike the CJ-5.

I always find it interesting when someone who does not have English as a first language writes it. I am 36, lived in Ohio all my life, was always a good speller, and I STILL have issues with some words! No need to apologize, as you have done well with the confusing English language! You are honestly trying, that's good enough!

The first jeep I purchased in 1984 was a 72 cj5. From there I had 2 cj7's, a Commando, Wagoneer and a Scrambler. When the Jeep bug bit again a few years ago I knew it had to be a cj5. I found a completely stock 1973 cj5 plow vehicle wth 37k that had last been registered in 1981. All those little differences add up to the most smiles per dollar. Meaning, close to stock is a hoot to drive and you don't need to worry about the aftermarket part availabilty to enjoy yourself. Just my opinion.
