I bought this Jeep a year ago and have been tinkering with it posting things on the "what have you done to your Jeep today" thread, but it's time to start a build thread. I don't have a lot of time to work on the Jeeps, so don't expect it to progress super quickly. I want to do a little more serious offroading, but my '69 ( Old Red Maintenace Thread) is original enough I don't want to hack it up. So I started looking for another Jeep. This one showed up in Spokane last January: Original paint, but bed liner interior, Saginaw steering, Aluminum on the back corners, 32 inch tires, and a Buick V8 under the hood. Pretty stock otherwise. It's been modified enough I don't mind making a better offroad rig out of it. I loaded it up and hauled it home: Where it got to meet it's stablemate: The goal is to make it a capable rig that can do the Rubicon, but not a rock crawler. Something along the lines of Norcal69 and FinoCJ's Jeeps. It should still look like a CJ5 when I'm done with it. The other goal is to keep it running most of the time during the mods. History has proven taking the project too far apart leads to me getting paralyzed. I bought it a year ago, so the next several posts will be from the past until I get caught up to today.
