Iím new here and a new CJ owner. I was a CJ nut back in high school and had a rusted out 81 CJ5. It moved on long ago but I have always wanted another CJ. Recently I found an opportunity to get another CJ and I pounced! It is an early half 1975 CJ5 with all of the options found standard on a Renegade package: 304, roll bar, padded dash, rear mounted spare tire (if it was still there). The ĎStandard Catalog of Jeepí lists these things in the options section so maybe itís not a Renegade? Does anyone know how to tell for sure?
I wanted to start this rebuild right from the start. I picked up this 1960 CJ-5 on 12-3-11 got in running and took a few test drives around the yard and now it's time to start the tear down. My plan is to take it down to the frame and start the rebuild.
Not sure if it's taboo around here or not, but I'm in the process of putting a 2001 5.3L GM V8 in my CJ...and since I'm a newbie to this site, I figured I would share. My goals for this rig is to have a VERY reliable, strong, driver that can hit and occasional MILD trail (I have a full tube buggy on one-tons that I can use for the hardcore stuff...but trailering it everywhere just sucks.).
I added this CJ to my fleet of Jeeps early this past summer. It had been sitting in the weeds for a couple years and was suffering from severe neglect. Some birds had made the grille and heater housing into a sparrow condo and there were other unmentionable critters living in it as well. I trailered it home and had it running the same weekend (battery, starter solenoid, fuel pump, cleaned fuel tank, water pump, some lighting and electrical repairs). It was pretty rusty and a little beat up, but in surprisingly good condition considering its past. My girlfriend and I cruised it all over the place through the summer (and did some light wheelin), but the 258 just wasn't doing it... [Read More]

After spinning the RH hub on my 82 Scrambler I knew it was time for a one piece axle upgrade. I chose the Superior brand.
I ordered the axles from a well known vendor (a sponsor of Jeep-CJ.com) and they arrived promptly.
The packaging was adequate but the plastic bag containing the misc. items (bearings, seals and retainers) had torn and was spewing parts into the box. Note to Superior, use a stronger packaging material...
The axle install went well, all of the parts fit well and corr... [Read More]
The day after I bought my Jeep a good friend of mine gave me three Jeep Books that he had bought years ago when he had a jeep and one of those was the Jeep Bible (2nd Edition) by Granville King and Willie Worthy.
After searching here and looking online, I was surprised at the different reviews that this book has gotten, (and also how much this book is now selling for on Amazon, $899 new) so I thought I would do a quick review as to what it is and isn't, and the experts here can also give thei... [Read More]
Since there are not many full roller rocker arm manufacturers available for AMC I had only a few brands to choose from for my CJ5. The ratio of 1.7:1 narrowed the field more and since I was not in the mood to fork over $400 dollars or more, Harland Sharp became my brand of choice.
Some may be saying "Harland Sharp?" right about now so I'll add a little bit of history for you. HS has been making high performance rocker parts since the 1950's. They don't focus on anything but roc... [Read More]
Ronin Wheelers of New England (formerly Ronin Wheelers of Rhode Island) was founded by a small bunch of guys (and gals) that own Jeeps and used to belong to another 4x4 club. Having become increasingly discouraged with the hierarchy of the other clubs and all the politics (read B.S.) that were transpiring within, not to mention the lack of concern for the quality of the club itself and the well being of its members, this small but determined bunch set out on their own to develop no
We have lots of CJs and experience working on them, with a few YJs, TJs, and JKs thrown in. All 4 wheel drive vehicles are welcome to join and come hang out. Trail Rides, Shop Nights, Junk Yard runs and they Anual Car show are many of the activites that we offer. All we ask is that you get active in as many activities as you possibly can, and make this YOUR club.
We are a group of local guys and gals that live here in Citrus County and surrounding areas that love the great outdoors. We are Jeep owners that get together for occasional Jeep oriented camp-outs, cookouts and trail rides. We are a 100% family oriented club, and we love taking the kids on our events. I know there are clubs out there that say they are family oriented and all, but we wouldn't have it any other way. The club is always looking for new members to join us in the great outdoors....
