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]
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.

As many of you may know, I am in the middle of building my 78 CJ7. If you are on this site, you know it is possible for a jeep to have a little rust. There are many choices on dealing with rust. The one I have chosen for most of my CJ is Por-15. There are a few similar products that are a seem cheaper, but if you compare the coverage (sq. feet) from Por-15 to its competition, it is relatively similar in price. The company reccomends a 3 step process starting with Marine Clean. This is basically... [Read More]
After several failed attempts to press a bearing off of an output shaft of my Dana 20 transfer case using a cheap bearing splitter, I decided it was time to invest in some 'real' hardware for my tool collection.
