I've wanted a CJ7 for about 8 years now and finally bit the bullet on a 1980 CJ7. It only has the 2.5L and the SR4 transmission but the price was right and it's going to be a dd not a rock crawler. Rust is very minimal, transmission is loose but shifts and downshifts well, engine has maintenance records and the under valve cover looks pretty darn clean, passed smog easily.
I plan to inspect all systems (mechanical, electrical, hydraulic) and start off by just enjoying driving it around. First upgrade is in the mail already (3 point seatbelts). First main project will be tightening the steering wander (I've poured through too many threads about that on here). Anyway, I'm happy to be a member of this forum since I've already used so much of the collective knowledge on here.
