This will be a little journal about my slow and steady rebuild of my 86 CJ-7 Liberty Edition.
Factory specs were:
Dana 44 rear
Fold and tumble rear seat
A insane mess of vacuum hoses for emissions
This is what a Liberty Edition looked like from the factory, this isn't mine but identical except mine didn't have the windshield lights
The research I have done it appears the Liberty Edition seemed to only be offered in the Chicago region of Jeep, I think I may have the window sticker...it came with red interior, radio delete plate with black panel around the gauges, white hard top and wheels as well as very ugly CJ era stickers...that I actually want to recreate for this build I think?
Why is this round 2?
Well my Grandfather, Dad, and a buddy of mine rebuilt... [Read More]
I went and bought another 86 CJ7. This one will be for my daughter. Here's a start on some of the pictures. I will post more later once a take a few. I had to sorta wedge it on the trailer. One of the pictures shows the tire bulging over the trailer edge. So now I am working on two projects at the same time. What in hell am I thinkin! Still need to get the other outta the paint shop.
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]

I'll have a full review after I get the frame painted but I painted one of the front sway bar frame mount brackets and it came out really good! After letting it cure as I was taking it off I dropped it (about 5ft) and it didn't even leave a scratch on it. The bracket almost looks like it was powder coated. I am very pleased with it, and would recommend it to anyone!

Great bunch of guys who don't talk about wheeling, they do it. They wrench on their junk and they hit the trails. Very supportive group of people. They will never leave you on the trails alone and will always do what they can to help you.
Very active online forum with a bunch of knowledgeable guys and girls. Somewhat of an adult crowd. While they have some younger folks at some events, this is really more of a beer around the camp fire group.
They frequent the Badlands in Attica and the Clif... [Read More]
