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]

These Shackle Hangers are HEAVY DUTY! Milled out of a solid block of steel. Mount with 3 bolts instead of 2 like stock hangers do. Front uses existing hole already in the frame. Rear needs extra hole drilled (I used a 21/36 bit) and the frame had slots on each side where the new hole was drilled so I was about to put the bolt through the slot in the frame and through the hole and get it bolted up. They cost $145.08 for the set of 4 with grade 8 mounting hardware. Worth every penny!
this stuff is awsome. i used it to fix a crack in the bumper cover on one off my hondas. now the reel good part. as some of you know i broke a ear off my exhaust manifold. i was bored one day and said what the heck. i put some of this in the ear and put it on and let it set for a day. went out the next day snugged up the bolt and it worked. went driving around and quite as can be. i will use this stuff for now on....

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!
