    Hello folks, It's been many years since I've posted on this forum. Retired my 95YJ to my Dad's cabin for a couple years, revived it, and sold it shortly thereafter b/c of a lack of space, little guys, short on cash, etc... Well here I am 4 years later, little more cash, a garage (vs...

    My recently purchased 83 CJ-5 has noticeable negative camber on the driver’s side front wheel only. In other words, the TOP of that tire tips in. CJ’s run a slight negative camber and I’m not sure this is adjustable. How does a condition like this happen - bent axle, ball joint or spindle...

    My wife and family surprise me with this 78 CJ-5 that I had been interested in. The jeep is in pretty good condition but in need of some TLC and a few upgrades. After a little wheeling at the beach we took her back to Bend Oregon

    Hi, my name is Jen. So, first things first - I am a complete novice with CJs and a mostly novice with wrenching. My experience can be summed up with changing out the suspension on my old Ford minivan and changing spark plugs on an old Z280 and on my new CJ-5. Second, I can't start my Jeep...

    I am new to working on older vehicles and i just bought my first jeep. a 1977 CJ-5 - It has athe 304 V8 with a 3 speed transmission. The guy i bought it from put in a fuel-cutoff switch that you have to turn on in order for it to start. I was not familiar with these and i accidentally left it in...

    I'm having problems with my CJ-5 and overheating. Currently there is no electric fan because I can't find one that will fit. I only have 1 3/4 between the radiator and the grill. What I was wondering is there an electric fan out there that is this thick? Or is there another cooling option that...

    Anyone know when Jeep switched to 'outboard' brake drums (mounted outside the wheel hub)? I have a 70 CJ5 with 10 inch outboard drums, but not sure if that is original. I believe the 10 inch drums were factory option with V6 225 by 1970, whereas a lot of the Kaiser era jeeps for the mid-60's...

    Jeep Forum, I bought my 1980 CJ-7 a few months ago, and I'm totally obsessed with it! There's just one blemish on my rosy Jeep-owning future, and that's trying to find a company that will insure my CJ and still allow me to drive it. Since insurance companies don't really sympathize with their...

    Just bought a 1975 CJ-5, it has a Dana 44 rear end. I think the ring & pinion in the rear differential are stripped. The rear end is junked and will require a total rebuild, $1,500 or more? I'm not a good enough mechanic to rebuild it myself. I think it will be better to buy a rebuilt axle...

    I was swapping my standard column for a CJ tilt column in my 80 CJ5 last night. I was reconnecting the U joint, and heard a tink in the cabin, looked, and saw the horn plunger had shot out of the column and was laying on the seat. I have the plunger, and the spring, but cant figure out whats...

    I am looking to replace the leafsprings on my old cj, they are stock and sagging a little on the right side. I was wondering if there was another car that had the same pattern as a 79 cj5 in the leafsprings mounting area, something like an old jimmy that would be a little newer but salvageable...

    I finally got to take my CJ-5 four-wheeling this weekend. I had a lot of fun. These are the only two videos of my Jeep. And before anyone starts preaching to me about safety, I know I need a rollbar. :thumbsup:

    What kind of brake booster can I use on my 1975 CJ5? I was thinking of installing one from a newer CJ or maybe a YJ, but I don't know what I will have to do to accomplish that. I have 4 drum brakes all around, the only power thing is the steering. Power brakes are a must for my teenage leadfoot...
