I was told to use Valvoline VR1 20w-50 in my '67 Beetle, so I'm just going to put that in my 258 CJ-7 when I change the oil next month. I only put maybe 3000 miles tops each year on each of those...

Got around to soldering the mouse-chewed wires back together and replacing all the bulbs. Also got rid of the ugly CD player and speakers and replaced them with something a little more appropriate.

I'd look for an original windshield frame and replace it, but if you (or know someone who has) have welding or body work skills, it's probably repairable.

The dash pad has a couple screws at the bottom that screw directly into the dash and a few screws at the top on the sill that you'll see when you drop down the windshield. I kept my seats in to have...

We started working on the Jeep last night and found out why the dash lights aren't working. Mice chewed up a bunch of wires. This is actually the cause of items 1, 3, and 4 in my list of problems...

I took my dash off last night. You take off the dash pad after the windshield is lowered, then you just remove the several torx screws from the perimeter of the dash. We ended up just removing the...

I found a crusty set of 15x8 red stripe wagon wheels locally on craigslist. They're headed to the powder coat place tomorrow.

I just got my '84 CJ7 with 170k miles and the PO has been using Castrol 20w-50 for the last 10 years. I also have a restored '67 Beetle and all the VW guys around my parts swear by the Valvoline VR1...

Hack said it best, if you can afford to keep the CJ-5 and buy a used late model car, that will be the best bet (as long as your Dad will let you keep it garaged). If the only rust is the small area...

I live in Arkansas. Drove to CA and pulled it back. Luckily the jeep already had a tow bar on the front. All the jeeps here I found locally had been molested.

My CJ dry spell has ended!

The last CJ I owned was in 1995! After national craigslist searching for about a month, this one popped up for sale in CA. My retired Dad needed something to do so he drove out and pulled it back. ...

Hey thanks for the info. After searching google images for a while I had suspected they were aftermarket. I didn't think about them maybe being dealer added though.

Decal identification

After selling my '83 CJ-5 about 23 years ago, I'm once again a Jeep owner. I just bought this '84 CJ-7. The previous owner of 10 years says it's the original paint job. Are these OEM decals on the...

Rhino Lined Tub?

Is a Rhino Lined tub a red flag for hiding rust? Should I steer clear or is that acceptable? I'm looking at an '84 CJ-7 that seems to be mostly original and the seller is the second owner, they...

Here's the next one I found. Just shows how ridiculous the price of that gray jeep is. This one's complete and unmolested for the most part for a little less money. Definitely not my favorite...
