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.
I picked up this 82 Jeep CJ7 Limited from the original owner (sort of). The bill of sale will say I am the second owner, but it spent about a year in my buddies hands before it was sold to me for what he had in a carburetor rebuild, a new gas tank and fuel line ($400). The earliest pictures that I took of the Jeep were in October of 2008- I picked it up earlier that year if I remember correctly. The pics show the Jeep after I sold the top and original wheels. I had the black wheels/tires lying around from an old Ford truck I sold about 10 years prior- they were not my first choice, but are serving their purpose for now.
The Jeep was 100% stock from what I could tell. The clutch, brakes, lights, gauges and 4-wheel drive all worked. Rust had taken care of the rear frame... [Read More]

For years I have been missing one of the original windshield hold down clamps for my CJ5. I have searched for replacements but never have found any thing that functions as well.
After placing an add here at Jeep-CJ.com I was informed that AA sold replacements and knowing what quality products that AA is known for, I thought I would order a set - sight unseen.
The order transaction went smoothly and within minutes a new set of hold downs (#176127) were on their way. A five day delivery time w... [Read More]

The Harbor Freight 3/4 Ton Folding Hydraulic Wheel Dolly is a well made product for its price but it does have limitations.
I was tired of moving my CJ around with a floor jack while it awaits its transmission transplant so I decided to do something about it. After looking at many vehicle dollies I settled on the Harbor Freight 3/4 ton dolly. I needed something that was fairly inexpensive but would handle the weight of my CJ.
